Are Tootsie Rolls Real Chocolate?
Tootsie Roll candy is not made with actual chocolate. It includes cocoa and artificial and natural flavors to create the delicious chocolate taste, as well as added fruit flavors in the fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls candy. Because these aren't made with real chocolate, they may have fewer allergy risks or be more widely enjoyed by people who may not be able to consume actual chocolate.
When Were Tootsie Rolls Created?
Although there are a number of tootsie roll sizes available today, the Midgees are what started it all. In 1896, Leo Hirshfield opened a candy store in New York City and made the first Midgee, which at the time was a simple wrapped penny candy created from a European recipe that he obtained before coming to the States. Flavored Tootsie Rolls followed soon after. The Midgee is still among the most popular of the Tootsie Roll family, and although you probably can't buy one for a penny anymore, they still offer a great value and nostalgic enjoyment.
