When I was growing up in Brooklyn
, NY, most of the Mom-and-Pop stores had a special when you bought Tootsie Pops
, the lollipops
) with the Tootsie Roll
stuff inside them.
Along the wrapper are little pictures of kids doing things like racing soap-box derby cars, playing marbles, tennis and volleyball, even horseback riding. If you were very lucky, you had a picture of a little Indian child with a bow and arrow, shooting at a star. If you had the complete image, you won another Tootsie Pop.
The worst thing to get would be everything except for his foot, or the star missing because the image was too close to the edges of the wrapper. Major letdown when you're only 7 years old!
