Damn these are good!


I've recently taken to filling my candy beaker (a 4 Liter beaker, formerly used for production of cellulose substrate for SPKUCo, but which now has a hole in the bottom, making it an excellent candy jar, but terrible at holding cellulose substrate, which tends to ooze out of 1/4 inch holes) with Frooties - a delicious product from Tootsie Industries.

The best flavor is lime cola. It has a delicious fruity lime flavor, paired with a subtle cola flavor reminiscent of cola Bottle Caps candy. It's also the most recently introduced flavor, according to their website, reaching the world for the first time in 2005. Apparently, the Frootie in general was introduced to an eager public in the 1970's. No precise dates there, probably because the web-author didn't want to spend too much time thinking about the 70's.

Frooties are tiny, packed with flavor, and addictive. Best of all, they come in giant bags - 445 pieces per bag - so there are plenty to share!

I can attest that frooties are the best tasting candy on the market. I haven't been able to find them in Florida. How about sending some my way.

Sure, I'll send you some as a wedding present.

Frooties are evil! I pass that beaker many times a day and they just call to you. I now close my eyes and plug my ears every time I pass. But maybe if I keep eating it my baby might have a chance of being bigger than yours. I wouldn't place $ on that.
