(Newser)   Why is the Tootsie Roll organization a near-impenetrable fortress, refusing to hold earnings calls, speak with journalists, or even give tours? What are they planning?   (newser.com) divider line 20

If you go to Sonic and order a chocolate Sprite, it tastes so close to a Tootsie Roll that I'm pretty sure that's the basic formula.

Recipe for homemade tootsie rolls:
melt chocolate in double boiler with butter, 10:1 ratio.
add marshmallow fluff (the disgusting stuff from the jar) still on the heat
the chocolate will seize (separate into oils and solids). Toss the oils, turn the solids out on wax paper to cool.
knead the solids until they can be rolled out and cut.

// this one time, at band camp, we were reeeaallllly high.....

If you go to Sonic and order a chocolate Sprite, I hope someone drove you there because whatever substance you've partaken of is impeding your decision making and likely your driving abilities.

What's scary about this? If the investors don't like the way the company is run, they don't have to invest in it. Maybe TR doesn't like spending a lot of time and money fellating Wall Street.

I didn't even know it was publicly traded.

P/E of 32, and a 1.2% div... I'll stay away from this one. It's over valued on it's fundamentals.

And what's that tune he's always whistling...
What's he building in there?

I didn't know it wasn't part of Unilever/Kraft/Nestle/Hershey/Frito-Lay decades ago. Pretty ubiquitious distribution for a small player.

Some seriously old-fashioned products in their lineup. Nik-l-nips still exist? But, damned if I don't have a Junior Mints craving in a road trip gas station about once a year.

There's another kind of fluff?

Tootsie Rolls are almost pure trans fat, just an FYI.

It might be the medications I'm taking, but lately, whatever it is I think I see becomes a Tootsie Roll to me.
