Dove bars. Heath Bars. Turtles. Margie’s Candies. Andie’s Candies Chocolate Mints. All these confection favorites can trace their beginnings to midwestern Greek immigrants. Join us for a presentation by Ann Flesor Beck and learn about the connection between midwestern candy making and Greek émigrés like her own father. Ann’s father Gus Flesor came from Greece in 1901 eventually journeying to Tuscola, Illinois to start his candy business which Ann and her sister carry on today.
