Candy Cane Tootsie Pop Drops, Peppermint Flavor review

Candy Can Tootsie Pop Drops Peppermint Flavor

There is absolutely no way a person can run into Target for one thing and hurry back out. Target has made their store too enjoyable. Even if you don’t end up buying anything, it seems you always can spend half an hour looking. The biggest distraction at their store is their seasonal department. I can always count on Target to stock all the new & interesting items at a good price. Last week, I had to stop by Target for some cleaning spray and craft supplies and ended up spending 20 minutes in the seasonal department choosing new candies to taste.

Candy Cane Tootsie Pop Drops, Peppermint flavor, caught my eye immediately. I had to try them. Whoops, wait a minute, there is also Peppermint Tootsie Pop lollipops. Since I’m an adult, I’ll try the pop drops first.  Although, once my kids caught sight of the Tootsie Pop Drops, they just about ate the entire movie size box. I’ll be back in Target this week picking up the Peppermint Tootsie Pop lollipops.

Candy Cane Tootsie Pop Drop split in halfI was dissapointed to cut a pop drop in half and discover that there is a minute size chewy tootsie roll center surrounded by a generous Peppermint candy.  My thought is that a Pop drop should be the opposite: a generous tootsie roll center surrounded by a thin peppermint candy.   Tootsie roll makes this candy work, though.   There is a light peppermint flavor in the outer shell, the peppermint flavor is low and not at all overpowering and cool.  Once chewed, the chocolately chewy center flavor comes across nice and strong.

I have a bad habit and bite hard candy.  Pop drops are easy to suck on and let sit in your mouth; therefore I run less risk of breaking a tooth.   Thank you Tootsie Roll Candy company.  I love your new holiday candy; it tastes ordinary yet good and the packaging is very appealing.
