Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
My favorite candy when I was young was Tootsie Pops. One of the things I loved to do with them was to close my mouth around them tightly and then pull on the stick real hard. The sound was great - kind of like a pop.
I always believed that maybe I discovered the idea behind the name "Tootsie Pop". I never did find out, but I always dreamed of some contest about guessing the reasoning behind the name and winning a lifetime supply of Tootsie Pops. Oh, well I loved them then and I love them now. By the way, I can still make them pop and as soon as my granddaughter gets a few teeth I'm gonna show her how to pop them like papa does. ~ Ashley from Missouri
