You may be surprised to learn that origins of Sweetest Day really do lie in one of the sweetest things we all enjoy - chocolate! In the early 1900's, a group of candy company executives in Cleveland started what they hoped would be a yearly initiative - giving away thousands of boxes of candy to the underprivileged. Although the effort was loudly decried by the cynics who accused the companies of exploiting those down-and-out to promote their own sales, the idea of doing something kind for those struggling did have appeal. Just over 100 years alter, Sweetest Day is still a tradition, although more popular in the Northeast and Midwest than in other parts of the country.
