Dawn spills the beans on pops — Tootsie Roll Pops


This past Tuesday evening at 9:37:38 p.m. ET in came the following comment on my post of September 14, 2004, headlined "Tootsie Roll Pops Announces Three New Flavors!":

"You can purchase individual bags — just do a Google search for 'your favorite flavor tootsie roll pops' and scroll down, there is a company that sells individual flavors in like 5 pound quantities. PARADISE!!!!!! No more hideous chocolate tootsie roll pops."

Just a minute, Dawn.

I like the chocolate ones best and remain dismayed beyond expression since one day a couple years ago finding that my local CVS — my dealer — since forever having offered Tootsie Roll Pops for sale on an individual basis, had ceased and desisted from this practice, offering instead the big plastic bag of assorted flavors sold in supermarkets.

When CVS offered the open box of loose pops I could dig around and pick out all the chocolate ones, feeling slightly guilty about hoarding them but not enough to make me stop.

I don't do guilt very well at all.

But I digress.

Dawn, don't trash my chocolate pops or there'll be concussions.

Wait a minute, that's not right... discussions.

Yeah, that's it.

No, you idiot — repercussions.

Oh, go away.

I carry these things with me almost all the time. A friend swears the one I gave him at a concert last summer saved his life. They truly have amazing properties.

I've tried some of the new flavors and I'm not too impressed. The chocolate ones are definitely the best. If they got rid of the blue ones, I'd be thrilled. They're just wasting space in the bag.

Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!

In total agreement. The chocolate Tootsie Roll Pop is the apotheosis of Popdom. Chocolate flavor inside and outside. Chewy chocolate, brittle chocolate. This Pop (well, not one individual Pop, to be sure) has the distinction of pulling off more of my crowns, more often, than any other candy. Cherry and Orange come next, but they are pale poseurs, lacking the vigor and trenchant virility (I always think of them as male) of the noble Chocolate Tootsie Roll Pop.

Maybe some kind of exchange can be worked out with those blind to the charms of this handsome confection. You (wherever "you" are) can have all my grape, watermelon, blueberry, raspberry, persimmon, duran, and whatever the hell else flavors they perpetrate on the public these days. And I will get all the lovely chockies. Oooooooohhh. Mmmmmmmmm.
