Chocolate Tootsie Pops have taken on mythical status and remain one of most requested , and hardest to find candies, which are available on a very limited basis.
The last time we were able to purchase them was in 2009 so you can imagine our excitement - and rest assured that we stashed away a few bags for personal consumption - when we found out that they would be available in late July 2012.
As to why Chocolate Tootsie Pops are so popular, there are many speculations:
First, they are only available in the Assorted Tootsie Pops mixture and candy experts claim they are always in short supply. Tootsie claims that the flavors are mixed randomly but we have to agree that Chocolate ones tend to be the flavor that disappears first.
Second, everyone loves what they can't easily get and these lollipops are so scarce that people will go to great lengths to acquire them. A simple issue of supply and demand.
Lastly, the combination of a hard shell chocolate flavored lollipop filled with a soft Tootsie Roll center is just downright delicious.
Whatever your reason for loving these elusive lollipops may be, we encourage you to stock up as supplies are limited and they tend to sell out as soon as they arrive and because three years is a long time to have to wait for the next batch!
Ours are packed in a 5 lb. bag, have approximately 25 pieces per pound and are Kosher Certifed.
