Founded in 1896, Leo Hirschfield invents the Tootsie Roll and names it for his daughter. His new hand-rolled candy sells for one penny.
In 1920, the "Making the World Sweeter" campaign is rolled out– this inspired our Vintage Tootsie Roll® Moon tee as a recreation.
Mr Owl is born August 4th, 1970 and takes his first attempt to try and find out just how many licks it takes to get the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop!
In 1993 Tootsie Roll Industries welcomed the addition of Junior Mints, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies and Charleston Chew.
