Attention all packagers of Purim, Bar Mitzvah, and Aufruf candy bags: Your world has just expanded beyond Paskesz and Goldenberg Peanut Chews. Tootsie Rolls, Tootsie Pops, and Mason Dots are now kosher under the supervision of the OU.
Also included are the company's many well-known branded products including Tootsie Roll, Tootsie Roll Pops, Tootsie Pop Drops, Caramel Apple Pops, Child’s Play, Charms, Blow Pop, Blue Razz, Cella’s chocolate covered cherries, Mason Dots, Mason Crows, Junior Mints, Charleston Chew, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies, Andes, Fluffy Stuff cotton candy, Dubble Bubble, Razzles, Cry Baby, Nik-L-Nip and EI Bubble.
Now kosher consumers can finally learn the answer to the age-old question: How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? We found the original commercial, which first aired in 1969 and may well be the longest running TV commercial.
