Tootsie Roll
Tutsi Roll
Return to Classics

Candy afficianados might look at my Classics gallery and say, "I don't get it -- where are all the M&M's, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey Bars, etc.?" The fact of the matter is, to me, although these wrappers are indeed truly classic, they are also by and large deadly dull. I have them, but what's there to look at? I post this Tootsie Roll wrapper as an example, although the Tootsie Roll is such a classic piece of American ephemera, it deserves to be included.

I also wanted to include it as a counterpoint to the Tutsi Roll, which I thought was a charming foreign variation on the American classic.
