Sanders Confectionery, Michigan (Images of America Series)

( 9 )

Overview


For more than 130 years, there has been no sweeter word in Detroit than Sanders. The venerable confectioner was once as much a part of Detroit's streetscape as the Big Three, Hudson's, and Coney Islands. Sanders was more than just an ice-cream and candy shop. A Detroit icon, it served a fountain of memories for generations. Detroiters stood two and three deep behind lunch counters for tuna or egg salad sandwiches, devil's food buttercream "bumpy" cake, hot fudge sundaes, and Sanders' signature dessert--hot fudge...

Overview


For more than 130 years, there has been no sweeter word in Detroit than Sanders. The venerable confectioner was once as much a part of Detroit's streetscape as the Big Three, Hudson's, and Coney Islands. Sanders was more than just an ice-cream and candy shop. A Detroit icon, it served a fountain of memories for generations. Detroiters stood two and three deep behind lunch counters for tuna or egg salad sandwiches, devil's food buttercream "bumpy" cake, hot fudge sundaes, and Sanders' signature dessert--hot fudge cream puffs. As Detroit boomed, so did Sanders. At its peak, the company boasted more than 50 stores, with its products available in as many as 200 supermarkets. The Sanders story began in Chicago, where Fred Sanders opened his first shop. A series of misfortunes prompted him to relocate to Detroit, where he began selling his confections on Woodward Avenue. Business grew steadily, and by the early 1900s, he had opened other shops along Woodward and elsewhere in Detroit. The Motor City nearly lost Sanders in the mid-1980s, but its desserts shops have begun resurfacing, thanks to another Detroit institution, Morley Brands LLC, which bought the Sanders brand.

    Sandclan Leader's Den

    The hill at the foot of the High Rock is a cave. In the cave, the clan leader sleeps. There is a moss, grass and leaf nest big enough for the leader and his/her mate. The ground is also lightly coated in sand. The ceiling is of a comfortable height, and there is a paw-sized hole in it that affords the den light.~Sandclan Leader's Den

    Highly Recommended ~ Wonderful ! ! ! !

    I grew up in Detroit and on Sanders treats. They graced our table on holidays and Sundays. Filled our Christmas stockings with goodies and special treats. Often my grandmother or my mother would take me to lunch at a Sanders counter restaurant in Woolworth's for the tuna or egg salad sandwich. My favorite was the Sanders chocolate fudge topping on french vanilla ice cream. MMMMMM ! ! ! Alone time was special with my mother and grandmother being in a family of 10 children. To this day the special treat of the fudge topping brings many fun filled memories for me. As my sisters and I grew up we would meet at Sanders for lunch and to catch up on family. I live in California now and wish Sanders was here so I could share with my grandchildren. Love the pictures in this book. My girl scout troop took once a year field trips to tour the factory where these delicious treats were created and see the wonderful displays! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Sanders!
