Why is a Tootsie Roll so different from say a Hersey’s Chocolate Bar? Is a Tootsie Roll even real chocolate or some kind of caramel/chocolate hybrid?
A tootsie roll is chocolate flavored taffy. I believe they do contain some cocoa powder.
There’s also somewhere between no and very very little fat in Tootsie Rolls. Chocolate is full of fat in the form of cocoa butter.
