The Tootsie Roll
Named after inventor Leo Hirshfield’s daughter with the nickname “Tootsie,” the Tootsie Roll was the first individually wrapped candy, originally sold for just one cent and delivered to the customer’s doorstep by horse and buggy. Tootsie Rolls have long been a favorite candy of many, including icons like Frank Sinatra, who required to have them on tour and was even buried with Tootsie Rolls. The Tootsie Roll’s classic design of the double twisted wrappers with a retro font is just as loved as the candy itself. Keeping the iconic chocolate flavor and chewy texture consistent, the simple yet unique chewy chocolate candy has been a staple to candy lovers for decades.
Tootsie Roll Industries
Founded in 1896, what was once a small candy shop started by Leo Hirshfield has grown into Tootsie Roll Industries, an iconic American candy company that has created many of the world’s favorite treats.
The first individually wrapped candies during a time when America was becoming a “great candy eating nation.” Tootsie Rolls gained popularity quickly, and the company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1922. During World War II, Tootsie Rolls fueled America’s troops. Providing “quick energy” and the ideal size and stability, Tootsie Rolls were packed in every American soldier’s rations. Known as “America’s favorite candy,” 64 million Tootsie Rolls are produced each and every day.
Beyond products with the “Tootsie” name, the company also sells a variety of other famous candies. From Dots to Junior Mints to Charleston Chews - and more - the array of candies sold by Tootsie Roll Industries are long time favorites in American culture.
