Chicagoans getting free chocolate
An unscientific survey of 350 U.S. cities has found that Chicagoans are most in need of a little joy, a candy company says.
The city that poet Carl Sandburg called
hog butcher for the world is going to receive free chocolate from Mars Snackfood, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday.
Mars plans to give away 50,000 samples of its M&M's, Snickers, Milky Way, Twix, Dove and 3 Musketeers between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday at Pioneer Plaza on Michigan Avenue.
