Sweetness Preserved: The Story of the Crown Candy Kitchen
"Sweetness Preserved" is the story of St. Louis's best-known confectioner, Crown Candy Kitchen, and the immigrant family who still runs it. In 1913 Harry Karandzieff and Pete Jugaloff, both skilled in the confectionary arts in Greece, opened Crown Candy Kitchen in St. Louis. Harry's descendants run the shop today and maintain its historical ambience and boast the oldest soda fountain in St. Louis.
