Uses for Reefers (was Re: Wabash to the B&O at Decatur)

URTX reefers, cleaned after bringing produce to the city, were sent back
west with loads of candy. Model a wholesale grocer and spot a load of candy.
Then send the car on to a produce terminal for its trip back east.
Was this sort of an lcl deal, with several candy makers' products combined on one car for a
consignee, or were they solid loads of one manufacturer's products? Or a little of both?
What candy makers were located in Chicago? (Baby Ruth comes to mind.)
