Tootsie Pop Drops
Tootsie Pop Drops History
Tootsie Pop Drops are a variation of the iconic Tootsie Pop candy. While the specific history of Tootsie Pop Drops is not widely documented, here's an overview of Tootsie Pop and how it relates to the Drops variation:
Tootsie Pops were first introduced in 1931 by the Tootsie Roll Industries, an American candy company. The original Tootsie Pop is a hard candy lollipop with a chewy Tootsie Roll center. It quickly gained popularity and became known for its catchy advertising campaign that asked the famous question, "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"
Tootsie Pop Drops, sometimes referred to as Tootsie Pop Drops Minis, are small, bite-sized versions of Tootsie Pops. Instead of the traditional lollipop stick, Tootsie Pop Drops are simply the candy shell and the chewy Tootsie Roll center without the stick. They are typically packaged in small resealable bags, making them convenient for snacking.
Tootsie Pop Drops provide a different eating experience compared to the classic Tootsie Pop. With the Drops version, consumers can enjoy the Tootsie Roll center without the prolonged process of licking through the hard candy shell. The small size and portability of the Drops make them a popular choice for on-the-go snacking.
Tootsie Pop Drops come in various flavors, including the classic Tootsie Pop flavors such as chocolate, cherry, grape, orange, and raspberry. The assortment may vary depending on the specific package or release.
While Tootsie Pop Drops have become a favored alternative to the original Tootsie Pops for some candy enthusiasts, they are not as widely recognized or marketed as the traditional Tootsie Pops.
Overall, Tootsie Pop Drops provide a bite-sized version of the beloved Tootsie Pop candy, offering the familiar combination of a hard candy shell and a chewy Tootsie Roll center in a convenient and snackable form.
