Tootsie Roll Vanilla Flavored Midgees

I’m dreaming of a white…Tootsie Roll? Whether your head hit the pillow and filled with thoughts of albino candy or not, 14oz bags of Vanilla Flavored Midgees are here for the holidays.

I’m a huge fan of Tootsie Roll products (love the Tootsie Roll Mini Chews) and I was worried that the Vanilla Midgees would disappoint me like the Inside Out Junior Mints did. This time, a variation on the original is a good thing. The candy has a very strong vanilla scent, almost like sniffing a bottle of pure vanilla extract, and the flavor matches the strong aroma. No vanilla is listed in the ingredients, so the taste is artificial, but it’s novel artificial, like a fiberoptic Christmas tree.

The vanilla Midgees are slightly larger than original Midgees, and left a little bit of a sticky, waxy, greasy feel on my fingers. The pleasant aftertaste was welcome, but the slightly waxy feeling in my mouth was not. Complaints noted, the candy really is tasty, and the vanilla Midgees are a nice complement to any holiday candy bowl. Plus, the package is festive but not holiday specific—it’s blue and white with snowflakes, and the individual candies are wrapped in blue and white and say Limited Edition.

I didn’t find any information about the holiday vanilla Midgees on the Tootsie website, but I did learn of Tootsie Fruit Rolls, which include the vanilla candy in their mix. The Tootsie site says the Tootsie Fruit Rolls come in 5 flavors: cherry, lemon, orange, vanilla, and lime. If you decide you really like the Vanilla Tootsie Rolls, check out this Vanilla Tootsie Roll Candy Wreath. Talk about festive!

    I used to love the Tootsie Fruit Rolls, but I’d always give the vanilla ones to my brother. I wasn’t big on vanilla…I can’t imagine having a whole pound of it!

    I LOVE the fruit mix! The vanilla ones are so different and sweeter than the other flavors, so I used to eat one vanilla with each other flavor to see how they tasted together. Wasn’t bad! ^_^

    I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the vanilla tootsie’s for Chistmas. My mom bought me 5 bags of them & now we can’t find them any more. She used to buy me the fruit flavored ones just so I could get the few vanilla ones. I was so excited to find a whole bag of vanilla tootie rolls! We really hope that you will sell them year round. I would definately buy more vanilla ones that chocolate ones. I hope I don’t have to wait until next Christmas for another bag of vanilla ones.

    These are some of my favorite candies. I fear that “Limited Edition” means I’ll one day not be able to find them at a store.

    These vanilla tootsie rolls are the best, or as my kids say…THE BOMB!!! I love them so much I can’t put them down. I just found them for the first time with the Halloween candy and am so disappointed they are limited edition! The vanilla ones have always been my favorite (in the generic tootsie rolls)! I will just have to buy as many as I can and hopefully stop eating so many so I can stock up for when they aren’t on the shelves anymore!
