About the history of Tootsie Rolls:
Tootsie Rolls are one of our most popular candies and are a true classic! In 1896, Leo Hirschfeld started his candy business in a small shop located in New York City. He wanted a candy that would not melt easily in the heat, so he developed Tootsie Rolls. He named the candy after his daughter, Clara "Tootsie" Hirschfeld. During World War II, Tootsie Rolls became a standard part of American soldiers’ field rations, due to the hardiness of the candy under a variety of environmental conditions. Tootsie Rolls are still made with the original 1896 recipe today!
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.
