Tootsie Roll


Another candy that fits into our classic candy department, the Tootsie Roll is a great treat, in moderation. If you try and tackle one of these big bar Tootsie Rolls, your jaw will be throbbing. It’s just too much of a good thing, and it requires several sittings for me to get through this giant roll. I suggest that you might want to stick to the small bite size portions.

It’s funny, I don’t even think about having to describe this candy because it’s such a classic for me. While I can’t imagine anybody having never tried one, I’ll still give you the rundown on what a Tootsie Roll is. The Tootsie Roll is a chewy taffy like candy that has a really nice milk chocolate flavour. It’s a strange combination on paper, but for some reason it really seems to work. Even though you don’t get the smooth texture from the chocolate, there’s something nice about having to chew on some taffy to release the chocolate flavour. The Tootsie Roll does come in various sizes as well, the one here is the bigger version, but they also come in small bite sized pieces (probably the original size they came in).

If you’ve never had a Tootsie Roll, I highly recommend it. It will not only give you an interesting treat to chew on, but it will give you a look into one of the most classic North American candies.
