Toggle Tuesday: Tootsie Roll Deluxe

As a kid I couldn't stand Tootsie Rolls and found them to be especially offensive on Halloween when they'd show up like dreaded turds in my trick-or-treater's pail. Despite that repulsion, one thing I did enjoy was the classic jingle that went along with the TV commercials: Whatever it is I think I see, becomes a Tootsie Roll to me! In any case, this chocolate toggle reminds me of an extra fancy Tootsie Roll with carved and undulating stripes. As a brand of dime-store candy these are utterly gross, but as inspiration for a Bakelite button I'm definitely okay with Tootsie Rolls.
