History of Tootsie Pops
Invented in 1931, Tootsie Pops are a beloved American sweet. These delightful lollipops are made by Tootsie Roll Industries and are known for their soft centers. The catch phrase, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” was debuted in 1970, and ever since then, countless children have taken up the challenge of keeping count as they lick away these lollipops to get to the chewy chocolate center. This treat, which actually combines two candies in one, evokes nostalgia in adults and continues to be a favorite of kids today.

Tootsie Pop Fun Facts
These lollipops are such an essential part of the American candy culture that they’ve even been the subject of rumors! A rumor about some wrappers being redeemable for prizes and free candy, but it wasn’t true. Still, some shop owners would reward customers who brought in specific wrappers. Tootsie Pop star wrappers, featuring the image of a child aiming a bow and arrow at a star, were some of those sought-after wrappers that sometimes earned a child a free lollipop. This became so popular that Tootsie Roll Industries began mailing kids a short story as a consolation prize for wrappers.
