The Original Tootsie Midgee Roll were introduced in 1896, as Leo Hirshfield named this iconic candy after his daughter, Clara, whom he called Tootsie.
One of the oldest American, and surely deserving of the title "Retro", Tootsie Rolls were the first "penny candy" .
The round piece of chewy, chocolatey candy still looks and tastes amazingly like the first Tootsie Roll, made over 107 years ago and did you know that Tootsie produces over sixty (60) million Tootsie Rolls per day?
