Tootsie Roll Frooties

Categories: Candy,Chocolate Candy,Lollipops,Soft Candy


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.
