Tootsie Roll Raspberry Cremes

I found this box of Tootsie Chocolate Covered Raspberry Cremes in with the Valentine’s candy at Walgreen’s, but I don’t see why this is a seasonal item and it doesn’t say that it’s Limited Edition.

The box says that there’s Delight in each bite!. The design is, well, odd and out of place. There’s a little Tootsie logo in the corner, but I never really think of Tootsie when I think of Junior Mints, which is a similar product.

They look just like Junior Mints. They’re same size and shape and have the same deep dark chocolate shell with a glossy shine. They smell, well, like perfume made for fashion dolls. It’s a floral raspberry but has a soft fake vanilla note to it as well.

The chocolate is thin but has a crisp crunch to it and protects the gooey innards very well. The raspberry flavor is all sweetness and floral artificiality. It’s an interesting mix, the chocolate is not very strong, but has a decent cocoa punch. The fondant is sticky and sweet, and a little grainy like a frosting or glazed donut might be.

They were intriguing, but not compelling for me. The raspberry wasn’t overpowering but also didn’t wow me much. I like the idea of other flavored centers for Junior Mints, like orange or chocolate or maybe maple. I’m sure some folks are going to absolutely love these. If I were making them though, I probably would just keep them as a seasonal item.

Raspberry Cremes are made in a peanut free and gluten free facility. (The do contain soy, eggs and dairy.)

  6. I just discovered these at a convenient store about a half mile from my house. I never go   to this store I just happened to in that area at the time. I seen these on the top self as I walked by and they just called out to me so I had to step back grab a box and OMG !!! They are sooo good. I love them. They are just like the junior mints but with a raspberry flavor. Now I drive way out of my way just to get me a box because I have not been able to find them anywhere else.

  10. Found them finally .....You can find them on if you search them.  However, quite pricey and you have to order a lot of boxes.  Funny thing is after I did that, I found them at my local dollar store.  But you have to shake the box to make sure they are not too old and have not melted into a blob if you buy them at a dollar store.

  11. OMG!  I found ONE package of these in Hannaford.  I wanted more, but they were all gone.  I love ‘em.  Heading to Walgreens tomorrow to see if they have any there.

  12. I only ever found 1 box at our local grocery store! Every where I go, I search the candy Isles, never found another. Why would it be seasonal when they’d sell like hotcakes all the time.

  13. Up until about a month ago my local Dollar Tree sold this candy, I’m hoping other locations still provide them.
