Tootsie Roll Midgees
As the iconic treat that launched America’s favorite candy company, Tootsie Roll, offers a perfectly-balanced cocoa taste, lined with a subtle, fruit-flavored undertone—all incorporated into a delicious treat. Midgees, as you might suspect, are smaller versions. Flavor Rolls are Midgees that come in lemon, vanilla, cherry, orange and lime flavors.
 
Tootsie Roll history
 
Leo Hirshfield was looking around for a name for the new confection he was making from a recipe he'd brought over from Europe in 1896. He choose the name of his 6 year old daughter, Clara, whose nickname was Tootsie. [more below]

[continued from above]
Tootsie Rolls were the first penny candy to be individually wrapped in paper. They were one of the top choices of children who only had a few pennies to spend on satisfying a sweet tooth.
 
In the 1930s, the first soft-centered lollipops, Tootsie Pops, were sold. The hard candy on the outside covered the Tootsie Roll center.
 
During World War II, Tootsie Rolls were favored by soldiers because they could be kept in pockets and barracks bags without melting. They were also a great source of quick energy.
 
In the late 1940s, Tootsie Rolls were advertised on the comic pages of many Sunday newspapers. The main cartoon character was Captain Tootsie who was a Superman-like hero who took kids on various adventures.

Tootsie Roll memories
 
Every kid has to lose all their teeth. Though most of them fear loosing that first molar. When I was in about 4th grade I had known that one of my back molars was loose so when my mom sent some Halloween candy I choose to eat on the other side. I choose a Tootsie flavor roll and popped it in my mouth.

As I began to chew I felt something hard inside the tootsie roll. I just ignored it but then it started to really taste bad. So I took the tootsie flavor roll out and when I looked at it one of my back molars was stuck in it. But not the one that was loose. So as you would expect I kind of freaked out and ran to the bathroom. After that day I made sure I hade absolutely NO loose teeth before eating a Tootsie flavor roll. ~ Angela from Wisconsin
