Facts About Candy
IN UMBER FIVE
- Talking again about SERVICE. When you open a package
of Whitman's chocolates from any of our stores, you will find the
name of the maker on the bottom of every piece. There is an
other interesting mark on each piece which, if you know it, will
help you to ehjoy eating chocolates. On the top of each piece is
a little design or symbol, which taken in connection with the size
and shape of the piece, will tell you wThat the center is.
As you get acquainted with Whitman's chocolates, if yon will
notice the "twist" of the chocolate finish on top of your favorite
pieces you will soon be able to pick out a Pecan Caramel, a Brazil
Nut, Honey White Nougat, or whatever appeals to your taste.
You will always know Bitter Sweets by the darker color of
the chocolates, and Milk Chocolates by their light shade. Learn
the language of chocolates from a package of Whitman's and you
can soon name all the thirty-five kinds of centers in the sixty-one
pieces of candy in a pound of SUPER EXTRA chocolates.
