Caramel Apple Pops - Dollar General : Cherry Hill, NJ 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Tootsie’s packaging designs desperately need an overhaul. Just look at this bag.

This layout is a mess of green, tan, and red-violet. The garish combination of colors and semi-retro look aren’t working for me at all. Thankfully the individual candy wrappers inside are much more palatable. The Tootsie company seems to be staying afloat due to the quality of their products and nostalgia, and it’s good to have a great product, but I think they should try to revamp their plastic bags with a completely throw-back retro design. Embrace the nostalgia and try to create something a little more aesthetically pleasing. (Or at the very least lose the red-violet purple color.)

Some of you might have had these before, but in case you haven’t, here’s a quick explanation. These are green apple lollipops that have been dipped into a chewy caramel coating. The finished candy looks a bit like something Dr. Frankenstein would create in his lab, but it tastes like a caramel covered green apple.

I love the taste of these lollipops, but they do have their downsides. The edges of caramel can become sugary shrapnel. At times I have had these lollipops cut the sides or the roof of my mouth. (Just like those tube shaped freeze pops.) These are also temperature sensitive. If these get hot, that caramel is going to melt and ooze out of the wrapper making it even less appetizing looking.

This may be one of the ugliest products ever, but man do they taste good.
