Owing to its non-perishable quality and resistance
to extreme weather conditions, the Tootsie Roll¨ has long been a popular military
ration. Since World War II, U.S. troops stationed around the world have enjoyed Tootsie Rolls
as part of their standard-issue MRE's, appreciating their great taste, portability, and
inherent quality of supplying "quick energy."
Over the years, veterans have shared their Tootsie-related service
memories, reflecting on a candy that provided energy and comfort during the most critical
moments. Here are a few:
