Tootsie Rolls™

Who doesn't love Tootsie Rolls? This delicious, chocolatey candy, packaged in the familiar nostalgic wrapper, has been a part of Americana for over 100 years. The first Tootsie Roll in the U.S. was made by Leo Hirshfield, an Austrian immigrant, in 1896 in his small candy shop in New York City.

In his small candy shop. Hirshfield hand rolled and wrapped his chewy, chocolatey creation and named the candy after his 5-year-old daughter, Clara, whose nickname was "Tootsie." Tootsie Rolls became the first wrapped penny candy in America.

Today, Tootsie Rolls are produced using the basic recipe that Hirshfield used a century ago. About 62 million Tootsie Rolls are produced every day.

Tootsie Roll Pop™

In 1931, the famous Tootsie Roll Pop was born. Tootsie Roll Pops were a revolutionary new confection, as they were the first lollipop with a soft chewy center. Over the years, Tootsie Pops have became a part of American history. Tootsie Pops are the No. 1 selling lollipop and are widely known by consumers trying to answer that age-old question "Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?" The real Answer may never be known.

Junior Mints™

Junior Mints were developed by James Welch and launched into the market in 1949. Welch named the candy after his favorite Broadway stage performance, Junior Miss. Junior Mints, with its chocolate covered, creamy mint center are a popular item in theaters and at home.
