Countdown to Halloween - Oct. 8th: Tootsie Roll Ghost Pops

I loved making the Tootsie Roll Pop Ghost Suckers at Halloween each year! So nostalgic and I still make them from time to time--will be doing so this year. This is a great craft for kids too and so easy to do. Here's a Tootsie Ghost Pop 101 How To.
You can use tissue paper, crepe paper, cloth, actual Kleenex tissues and whatever else you have handy. Other ways to mix it up are to use orange paper to make Jack O' Lantern pops, green paper to make witch pops, and black paper to make cat or bat pops. Add embellishments like ribbon, ears, eyes, and even hats, capes, and outfits.

Did you think when you were growing up that if you found a Tootsie Roll Pop wrapper with the Indian shooting a star you got a free bag. Turns out it's an "urban legend." If you mail them into Tootsie Pops, you'll get this letter in return with a clever story.

Oh my gosh, yes!! I remember being a kid and thinking I could take my Indian star wrapper to a local store and redeem it for a free Tootsie Roll Pop, but never tried. To be honest, until now I've never known if it was a myth or not! Thank you for sharing and bringing back some fond childhood memories!
