What Would We Do Without Tootsie Rolls?

Today is the anniversary of the first day that Tootsie Rolls were sold in American candy shops (in 1896)!

Some little known facts to celebrate this sweet day:
  • Tootsie rolls were the first penny candy to be individually wrapped (Wikipedia)
  • This chocolate candy was named after the inventor's daughter, Clara "Tootsie" Hirshfeld!
  • There is an online store for all of your Tootsie needs and wants!
  • There are eight varieties!  (who would have known!)  
  • To see how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie here!
