Limited Edition Vanilla Tootsie Rolls

Vanilla Tootsie Rolls are a "Limited Edition" yet are one of the most sought after candies!

 In a world where communities strive to represent diversity, candy companies seem to do the same. These Tootsie Rolls are what one might call the Caucasian candy of the community.

This limited edition candy receives a thumbs up and a cheesy smile from me, as it succeeds in being sweet and vanillay. As in most situations, where there is chocolate, there is also vanilla, and Tootsie Roll wouldn’t be the one to put its foot down to this norm.

 What confuses me is that this candy is marketed heavily as a “Limited Edition!” candy, so heavily that a good portion of the small wrapper is taken up with this exclamation. Though this exclusively vanilla bag is limited edition, the vanilla flavored Tootsie Roll is a regular candidate in the multi-flavored Tootsie Roll bags.

 On that same note, limited is a relative word. All candies are technically a limited edition in the world of time, as they will not exist forever. This candy is only around for a brief moment of existence, as are our lives. Limited could mean this candy is available only for one week, or one year, or a limited one hundred years.

Calling all vanilla lovers! This is your chance to purchase and enjoy the one of a kind, “Limited Edition!” Vanilla Tootsie Rolls, get them while they are still in existence!

The Mystery Candy: Tootsie Roll Pops

  “How many licks does it take to get the center of a tootsie roll pop?” The owl from the 1970s commercial’s famous words had kids asking all over America. The answer the owl gave was a “Let’s find out. A one, a two, a three, crunch. Three.”

 The real answer is however many you are willing to take; it could be one it could be one thousand. But counting how many licks it takes to get to the center takes away from the experience of eating this classic and delicious lollipop.

Get your tootsie roll pop in grape, cherry, orange, chocolate, blue raspberry, watermelon, strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, and a new banana flavor all with the soft chewy chocolate tootsie roll center.

 Another big mystery with the Tootsie Roll Pop is the Indian on the wrapper. This myth has stood strong over many years. Many Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers have a picture of an Indian shooting a bow an arrow at a star.

The myth stands that if you send a certain amount of these Indian marked wrappers back to the company then you will receive some sort of prize. Beginning in 1982 the Tootsie Roll company came up with a response to all of the wrappers they were receiving, a short fiction story called “The Legend of the Indian Wrapper.”

 It told a story of a man who lived long, long ago when all lollipops were made alike. He wanted to make a lollipop with something special inside, but this is where he was stumped. One day the man awoke to find a grand Indian chief smiling at him.

The chief told the man that he would help him make a lollipop with a chewy candy center, but only if the man promised that he would never, ever, stop making them for people. The man promised. The Indian on the wrapper is supposedly a sign that the grand chief has personally checked that particular lollipop for the chewy candy center.

 One thing I can tell you is that, Indian on the wrapper or not, every Tootsie Pop I have every sunk my teeth into has had the chocolaty chewy tootsie roll center and has thus been delicious.

Hey Candy Lovers!

Today we ate original and assorted tootsie rolls. The original tootsie rolls were chocolate flavored, and the assorted tootsie rolls consisted of vanilla, cherry, lime, lemon, and orange flavors.

The original tootsie rolls are basic and even if you don’t love the taste you still eat them. They are easy to love but more importantly, easy to find and easy to eat. So while they may not be your favorite candy, you will definitely end up eating them more often then you’d expect.

However, we had a completely different opinion about the assorted tootsie rolls. The vanilla ones like the chocolates are yummy but not a favorite. Out of all the assorted flavors, because vanilla is so basic, this flavor is the best.

 The lemon, cherry, lime and orange flavored chewy tootsie rolls are not up to par with the tootsie roll standard. They are found very commonly in Halloween baskets, but we find ourselves avoiding them every time we take a piece.

They taste very artificial, and the thought of them is unappealing. It is psychological because admittedly, the thought of them is much worse than the taste, so you may be surprised.

Peace & Love,
