Tootsie Roll Calories
Tootsie Rolls were invented in 1896 not long after Austrian-born Leo Hirshfield opened a tiny candy shop in New York City. Taking full advantage of his confectioner’s background, Hirshfield personally blended, cooked, and peddled a variety of products, including an individually wrapped, oblong, chewy, chocolate candies that quickly became a customer favorite. Sold at a penny apiece and affectionately named after Hirshfield’s five-year old daughter, Clara, whose nickname was “Tootsie,” Tootsie Rolls propelled Hirshfield’s modest corner store into a burgeoning candy enterprise that has evolved in little more than a century into the multinational corporation, Tootsie Roll Industries.

The Toosie Roll Industries Web Site
Promotions: When we reviewed http://tootsie.com, we found a contest to win $50,000 if you can guess the number of licks it takes the average person to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. There is no purchase necessary and you can enter here: http://www.tootsie.com/promotions.php
Factory Tour: Their web site has 9 videos showing how their candy is made, plus a video discussing THE important question: How many licks does it take to get the center of a Tootsie Pop? Important, yes, but after 20 or more years discussing this, I think they need a new marketing campaign.
Ringtones: Ok, this is where it is at. I don’t even have a cell phone, but if I did, Tootsie Pop #4 would be my ringtone. What? No Tootsie ROLL ringtones?
Video/Commercials: The Tootsie web site has a good selection of vintage commercials and video clips. Groovy stuff. One gets the impression that their advertising has not changed much in the past few decades.
