The Milk Duds Story

Why do ladies and children receive Milk Duds when they enter the restaurant? Greeks are known for their warm abundant hospitality; upon entering their home you are offered something sweet as a welcome greeting. “Milk Duds” were originally manufactured in Chicago and the owner of the company was both a customer and dear friend of Uncle Lou’s, thus the choice of the sweets. However, his sisters Polly and Demi and nephew Nick Noble who all worked in the business were convinced Uncle Lou had an eye for the women and adored children. The tradition carries on to this day.
