Tootsie Pops are one of our best-selling suckers, and with good reason – they are delicious! Tootsie Pops were invented in 1930 by Luke Weisgram, an employee of the Sweets Company of America (which became Tootsie Roll Industries in 1969). At an office meeting, employees were asked to share any ideas for new candies. Weisgram’s idea came from his daughter, who had shared a lick of her lollipop with him while he had a Tootsie Roll in his mouth. Weisgram loved the taste and suggested it to the company, who loved the idea. Tootsie Pops debuted in 1932 and have only grown in popularity since! But the eternal question is still unanswered – how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
IMPORTANT! Here is what you need to know when you have to have a melt-able product and it is just plain hot out!
If you take the these precautions as follows:
- Ship to a valid business address where someone is there to receive the package on the first attempt and get it into a cool room.
- Purchase our ice pack protection, which is offered in the shopping cart page
... and if your candy STILL melts, we will provide a refund for the melted item. We will not reship these items. If you do not take these precautions we cannot assume any risk of melting and cannot issue a refund or product replacement.
To avoid melting on idle delivery trucks over the weekend, melt-able orders will not be shipped when the ETA includes transport over a weekend. If you are unsure of ground transit times please call us at 888-729-1960.
