The Secret Of Life

Yesterday, my dear friend shared "the secret of life" with me. 

I know, I know!  A BIG deal, right?  It was very gracious and kind of her to impart her wisdom on me.

This tidbit of information has changed my life.  Well...for the last twenty-four hours, anyway.  I am not talking about "the fountain of youth," people!  (Though, finding an exceptional eye serum would be nice.)  I believe it is more grand than that.  It is not the secret to financial success.  (Though, I kind of wish it was.  I have my eye on a pair of plum-purple boots.)  No, it is small.  It is simple.  Upon introduction it may seem insignificant and underwhelming.  I am here to tell you that it is not!

I am here to tell you EXACTLY what this sassy mama told me.


First, you take a regular, chocolate Tootsie Roll.  (Yes, I wear hot pink, polka dot pajamas.) 

Unwrap that little darling.

Next, you take an orange flavored Tootsie Roll.

You guessed it!  Unwrap that little darling.

Lastly, the part that will make your heart stop and your head explode.  The part that will change the way you think about Tootsie Rolls.  The part where you will want to pull out your "Thank You" cards and write one to me, PRONTO!  The part that, as I said earlier, has changed my life...


Ahhh-mazing!!!  Oh my goodness, it is DELICIOUS!  I just can't seem to get enough of this delightful little treat.  Who needs eye serums and plum-purple boots when you've got Tootsie Rolls?!  Not me!

Maybe I need the boots...



  1. Looks so good! Great idea. So lucky for your friend to share her secrets :)

    1. HEEEEEYYYY, Pretty Mama!! It's been a while! SO SO SO happy you stopped by my blog and showed me a little love. You're the best!

  2. I'm a new follower. I agree that those two flavors of candy must be great together. I will try it. I don't think I've ever seen an orange tootsie roll. Have a great week. Doylene

    1. Thank you SO very much for the follow, Doylene, and for the nice comment. Give this treat a whirl and you won't be sorry! Have a happy weekend!

  3. Hahahahahha you are hilarious! I'm already getting ready to start my own stampede to target to try this! Yummmm

    1. YOU are hilarious, baby! Wish I could join you in that Target stampede!

  4. When I first heard about dipping strawberries in SOUR CREAM and then brown sugar and went O_o But I tried, I loved, and that gives me courage to try this interesting concoction :)

    1. OH MY GOSH!!! I THOUGHT THE EXACT SAME THING!! I had another friend teach me that trick. You can do it with fresh peaches too, and it is yummy! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! You're a doll!

  5. YUM! i am not a big fan of regular tootsie rolls, but i love the fruit flavored ones! they have a big bowl of them sometimes at one of the places i clean. and i admit, i take a few. :)

    1. I love you and love you and love you. Wish we were eating fruit flavored tootsies together!

  6. Who would have thought that? I will have to try it. Sad thing is, I didn't even know Tootsie Rolls came in orange flavor. lol

    1. DEBBIE! You are killing me!!!!!!! You didn't know about orange flavored Tootsies?! They come in lemon and lime and cherry flavors too. YUM! You must buy some. Now!

  7. Oooo, this does sound yummy! I'll have to try!

  8. Orange and Chocolate are always yummy! I was at a Depeche Mode concert a zillion years ago. It was a lot of fun. Wow, I hadn't thought of that in a long time. Now that song will be in my head all night. :)

  9. OMgosh.... ages since I thought about Depeche Mode. Talk about traveling down memory lane. Thanks, I just might have to make a 1am run to find some Tootsie Rolls!
