A Celebratory Tootsie Giveaway!

Categories: Candy,Candy Giveaways


Tootsie Roll

That’s right, folks, Candy Addict is BAAAAACK! While there are still a few glitches here and there, the Candy Addict you know and love is nearly back to her old self. Everything might look the same to you, but behind the scenes there have been a lot of changes. We’re still ironing out some details, but for all intents and purposes we’re back to our old selves. And ain’t we purty?

Anyway, to celebrate our return to normalcy (or what passes as such around here), we’re offering our THIRD giveaway of the month! This time around the fabulous folks at Tootsie have offered a candy basket assortment with different Tootsie candies! How great is that??

As a big thank you to all of you who stuck with us through our downtime, this contest is going to be really simple. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment on any post between now and midnight, April 30, 2009. That’s it! One random entry will be chosen from all entries that have some sort of substance (meaning one-word comments aren’t going to cut it).

The fine print, as always: You must be over 18 to win. Don’t spam our site, because if you do, you won’t win. Anything. Ever. Seriously, don’t do it. You must live in the lower 48 (which means if you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you’re out of luck, though at least you have nice scenery). If you don’t respond to our notification email within two days your prize will be awarded to someone else. In other words, make sure you use an email address that you’ll remember to check!

    anntje says:

    i don’t think i know a single person that dislikes tootsie rolls. they are such a unique candy, i don’t know of any other sweet even remotely similar. as far as chewy chocolate candies go- tootsie rolls are definitely the best. so many other candies have come along with the same concept- but most are pale in comparison!

    Welcome Back!! ^___^

    When I first saw the picture of the Tootsie Roll, I thought it was a pillow :P I guess that would be a pretty easy pillow to make… just need a rectangle piece of cloth, some stuffing in the center, and tie the ends off :o

    kathy says:

    Sometimes I can go for a month without a tootsie Roll. But, then the hunt is on to get the biggest bag I can find. If you have not eaten a tootsie roll lately you are missing out on a taste that can only be described as a chocolate delight, plain,simple, but a delight. Even in a tootsie Pop, which lasts about 4 licks for me before I MUST BITE INTO THE CENTER. Love your site, it helps me stay current with the world of candy without actually having to buy everything. Some of your descriptions have left me searching for the website to purshase these delights. Keep up the good work

    I think that Tootsie Rolls might be the only candy I have ever seen immediately damage someone’s teeth rather than just cavities (a friend lost a crown to some of my Halloween loot), and yet I still can’t hold it against the little guys. The originals are tasty, but the vanilla and fruit-flavored Midgees are the bees knees!

    Tootsie rolls are loved the world over and I want to thank you for the generous giveaway. When I was a kid we had a mold press that you put tootsie rolls into and then they came out in really cool shapes such as pumpkins, santas etc. I would love to find one of those old presses but I’ve never had much luck.

    Good luck with your blogs new looks and Happy Spring.

Thats where I got single size pieces of the jack daniels and grand marnier chocolate. They usually have them on the front counter, near the register.

    During the week of training at my summer job, our supervisor always offered Tootsie Roll Pops to enjoy when the energy during the day become low. And yes, I was one of those kids that kept the wrapper because it had a cowboy with a star on it!

    I can never find those blue vanilla ones however…

  108. 108
    Kate says:

    Yum. There is nothing more satisfying than a chewey gooey chocolately tootsie. especially when encased in a fruity shell!!! I’ll always remember the first time I ate a Tootsie Pop. I was five and I spit it out because I thought the tootsie inside was a bug! Once I found out it was really chewy chocolate, I loved them and I still do.

    Tooties~ you have been there since i was a tiny weenie little girl.
    Short and stubby, & long and cool….
    Chocolate wore me out then came those awesome fruity tooties, just when I needed you most, (while I took care of my mom when she was dying of cancer),,,,
    the circle has come round and now I am all grown up.
    What’s you got for us these days, my constant forever friend?
