Tootsie Roll

I’m not a big fan of ordinary American chocolate. In my experience, I’ve found that unless it has peanut butter or some sort of filling to take away the taste of the actual chocolate, I find myself feeling rather sick, and this is highlighted best with Hershey’s chocolate, where the majority of British people who try it say that it tastes like vomit.

Fortunately with this, I only had one small, individually wrapped piece of a Tootsie Roll, as shown in the picture above. I say fortunately, because these do not taste very good, and I couldn’t have eaten anymore of this.

There’s really just nothing to this. It’s a little square of what seems to be milk chocolate, but really doesn’t taste much like it. It just tastes…bad, like nothing I’ve ever really had, and nothing I ever really want to have again.

Looking at the ingredients actually gives a good idea about why the taste is so bad. The main ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, soybean oil, skim milk, and then finally…cocoa! Yeah, cocoa is nearly halfway down the list of ingredients, and it shows.

This is bad, and I’m glad I didn’t pay for it. You can keep this one, America.
