Whatever it is I think I see, becomes a Tootsie Roll to me…

tootsieNow is the time of year that our minds drift towards fantastical costumes and sugary delights. Above, perhaps the sweetest costume I’ve ever seen.  The Tootsie Roll Baby Bunting costume is made out of a soft brown felt and is available at Target.com.  A bit about Tootsie Rolls (a Chicago based classic):

Tootsie Rolls were first manufactured in 1896. 

The traditional chocolate Tootsie Roll lists among its ingedients orange extract.

Tootsie Roll Industries moved operations to Chicago in the early 1960s (before that, it was based in Hoboken, NJ).

Tootsie Roll has had the same jingle since 1976.  Enjoy, below…and Jive on.
