Sanders Chocolates

Sanders BoxDetroiters smile at the mere mention of the word Sanders Chocolates.

The first Sanders Chocolate store was opened by Fred Sanders on June 17, 1875. Eventually, there were more than 57 stores throughout the Great Lakes Region alone, selling their trademark recipes of candy, fudge toppings, and baked goods, as well as light lunches and an assortment of fountain counter specialties, including Ice Cream Sodas, Sundaes and Hot Fudge Cream Puffs.
