Tootsie Roll Frooties

Seth over at posted today about Frooties. Frooties? What the heck are Frooties? I wondered if they were a new name for those fruit-flavored Tootsie Rolls that I despise so (if it says Tootsie Roll and is shaped like a Toosie Roll, I want a CHOCOLATE Tootsie Roll, thank you very much). Nope – it’s a different (though similar) candy:

Tootsie Roll Frooties are soft chewy candies that carry the taste of fresh fruit.

Well, that explains it!

They come in 9 fun fruity flavors: Banana-Berry, Green Apple, Grape, Smooth Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Fruit Punch, Pink Lemonade, Strawberry and Watermelon.

Hmmmm…..I don’t think I have ever had these or even heard of them before. The site says they were invented in the 1970′s – how could I have missed them? Has anyone (besides Seth) had these before? The flavors sound pretty good – I’m going to have to find some.

While on the Tootsie Roll site, I found another product I have never seen before: Tootsie Pops Tropical Stormz

Tootsie Pop Tropical Stormz is an assortment of five delicious tropical flavored Tootsie Pops. The hard candy on each pop is a combination of two tropical flavors presented in a colorful swirl.

Sounds…..interesting, but give me a good old grape Tootsie Pop any day and I’m a happy guy.

    I’ve had the blue raspberry, green apple, cherry, and grape Frooties…when I scrounged them out of my sons’ bags of candy they received at parades. I suspect (though I haven’t researched this) that up to this point, Frooties might have been available in big, cheap mixed-flavor bags, perfect for purchase by the people who buy candy to toss from parade floats.

    Anyway, these Frooties weren’t bad–although the flavor wasn’t close to what I consider “fresh fruit” flavor. For instance, how many fresh BLUE raspberries has anyone ever eaten? The taste and texture of Frooties reminded me of Laffy Taffy, although a Frootie is a much smaller piece of candy than a piece of Laffy Taffy.

    Frankly, if I’m going to eat a piece of fruit-flavored chewy candy, I’d prefer a Now & Later any day–although I suspect that Frooties pose much less risk than Now & Laters, of breaking off one of your teeth when you take a bite (I’ve never had that happen, but heard of people who did).

    I agree with you by the way, the grape Tootsie Pops are AWESOME. Truly a timeless classic.

    I just heard that there is a new flavor called Lime-Cola. Have you tried it? I have also heard they going to a 400 ct bag and get rid of the 445 ct bag.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could purchase frootsies. I have been looking on the internet for a while and cannot find a website that has frootsies for sale. Anyone who knows please write back.

    RESPONSE: They are Frooties NOT Frootsies – maybe you have been searching wrong? Amazon sells them.

    I love the grape Tootsie Frooties…and no, I know what the other Tootsie Rolls you are talking about, those are nasty. Like the vanilla and all that crap, yuck. Anyways, I’ve always gotten them in parades, but they’re sold around my town at little convenient stores as penny candy. But yeah, grape is my fave, then comes watermelon. I’d have to say it’s one of my favorite candies. BTW – I found your little blog here trying to find a place to order a bag LOL

    Tootsie Frooties are one of my favorite candies. They used to sell them as penny candy at the hardware in my town growing up. Unfortunately, I can’t find any place to buy them except online (which tends to be more expensive). I don’t get it–all these stores sell the other Tootsie Fruit Roll, which I agree are disgusting. Vanilla is terrible, even the fruit ones aren’t that good. I wish they’d carry the Frooties instead.

    Frooties are my absolute favorite. I buy them in the mall in Lafayette, IN. There is a candy store called Inside Scoop that carries them in a type of “pick-a-mix” scenario.

    I just ate a gang of Tootsie Fruit Rolls, and I loved them. The lime is my favorite, followed by lemon, then cherry. Not a fan of the vanilla. (Is that even a fruit? Weird.) Anyways, I also love Frooties, but it’s been a while since I’ve had them. I was worried that they’d been replaced by the Fruit Rolls, and I’m happy to see that is not the case. Can’t wait to get my hands on some of those to compare. Seems like most people on here like the Frooties better. Just curious as to why? That lime Fruit Roll is seriously one of my favorite candies.

    YES YES YES!!!
    When I was about 7, my mom would drop my sister and I off to play video games at Morgan’s (kind of like Chuckie Cheese) while she shopped around the mall. I remember the taste of the cherry ones because that was all i ever got. I would come home with bags and bags full. I haven’t had one in about 10 years, because I forgot what they were called – i just remembered the oo in the middle- like the phonic spelling that i was fond of in such a young age!
    sooo good!
