When it comes to Tootsie Rolls, fatter is better.
The thicker the rolls, the chewier the candy. Those midgees (the bottom two) are tiny and tough. The best size in my humble oppinion are the ones that are about 2″ long, the one in the center of the above photo. They are nice and chewy, and the perfect snack size.
You can find them in those big bags of assorted candy that has Dots, and Tootsie Pops. They don’t last long in my bank’s candy bowl, and they are one of my favorite Halloween treatsto take from my kids’ candy bags. (Oh admit it, you do it, too…)
