A Brief History of the Dutch Mill Candy Company, Chicago, Illinois.
Dutch Mill Candy Company was established in 1927 at 2222 Diversey Parkway in Chicago. Barnet L. Stein was the company's President. Dutch Mill opened its 50th Chicago-area shop in 1946, selling candy, ice cream, and lunch.
Dutch Mill had an appealing "Old-world" aura and specialized in Dutch-processed chocolate (chocolate treated with an alkalizing agent), which was said to yield a richer, creamier taste. Slogan: "The Finest Candy This Side of Heaven."
