Historic Alabama: Sweet treat

Candy treats were mixed up at Hollywood Nut Products Co.

Valentine’s Day certainly wasn’t what it is today back in 1948, but there was still candy to be made and sold. Here, an employee stirs up some candy treats at the Hollywood Nut Products Company on Lafayette Street in Montgomery. The company, based in Minnesota, produced the Zero candy bar, among other products. Hollywood was sold in 1967 to Consolidated Foods, which later became Sara Lee.
