Tootsie Roll Mini Chews

One benefit of blogger being a huge big fat pita lately: posting has been so impossible that it made time for a tasting on these new Tootsie Roll Mini Chews – choc-covered mini tootsie rolls. In a word: awesome (tho they may not be for everyone; a fellow taster found them to be too small). these nullify all of the liabilities of regular tootsie rolls (even the midgees), namely that they are 1. too big 2. too chewy 3. not chocolaty enough. The minis have a smaller chewy ctr so you don’t lose yr fillings, and the coating makes em chocolaty-er. (I say this fully recognizing that they are also pretty damn sweet, but the ingredient list includes condensed skim milk, so that makes em healthy, right?) This 4.5-oz box has approx 30 pieces, and 3 servings, 10 pieces per, 170 cals, 7 g fat, 27 carbs.

THESE APPEAR TO HAVE THE APPEARANCE AND TASTE OF RABBIT PELLETS. THOUGH RABIT PELLETS ONLY COME IN CHOCOLATE DURING EASTER.

Haha, twisted dog, I had the same thought when I saw them!

They are much softer than regular Tootsie Rolls but they still can't quite hold a candle to the Storck Chocolate Reisen.

As I've told you over and over again, a fool and his money are soon parted. So I don't know why you people keep "expressing concern" about my prenup.

Here's the deal: I'm giving Kate a small allowance every year to buy formula, baby clothes, etc. for Surimi. It's not much, really, but more than she was making at her low-wage, part-time job previously. Some of you are saying, "But she's taking a big chunk of change, Tom." Please. Where's she gonna go? She's basically unemployable now. And happy.

As you've no doubt heard, I also have extended congratulations to my good friends Bret and Angelina Jolie on the birth of their child. While I chided them for not being able to have a black child, I do approve of their mission to Africa to try and put things right. In the spirit of forgiveness, I have invited them to join my other children in their Scientologic studies, where Silo can receive training to correct her deficiencies. And I have reduced tuition to a paltry $4.1 million.

I know "Tom Cruise" is not the real Tom Cruise. But can't this fake Tom Cruise get names and facts straight? (Or maybe he's just bad at anything that's straight?

Frankly, I'm a bit puzzled as to why anyone cares about my driving record. I mean, it's not as if we haven't all had mishaps on the road. And I promise you, a lot of what you read about me being the cause of accidents and etc is totally not true

and now, back to our blog item....
what i don't understand is the need to chocolate coat a chocolate candy!
i actually saw these in a store today, quite the coincidence, but didn't succumb to the urge.
(tommy, no one but you is concerned about your prenup. katie will be employable long after you're in the old actors' home.)

well if clairevoyant had read the blog item carefully, she MIGHT have noted the comment about regular tootsie rolls not being chocolaty enough? or was it that, it being a chocolate-related item, she was driven to such a state of agitation that she could hardly comprehend the fine verbiage? or does she actually think that regular tootsie rolls have any actual relation to "chocolate"

Paris, Tom, and Tootsie rolls of any size are so American.

Go Oilers!

I wonder how old T.G. is, that she is so concerned with her fillings? Is it time for her to move on to dentures now?

I know you are having trouble with your website, wanted to let you know that a number of comments I have left have disappeared.

And while I'm here, I wanted to tell "BK" that I like "BK" better than "BK's Blog" (which was a bit complicated to type).
