(a cavalcade of Christmas Dots!)
I feel so pleased that Tootsie is pulling out all the stops with wonderful holiday-themed Dots! Back at Halloween, they released three alluring limited-edition varieties- bat, ghost, and candy corn- and they were all pretty brilliant and delicious, especially the candy corn flavor. These Christmas Dots maintain the traditional candy's lime and cherry flavors and then a parfait-like layer of vanilla flavor on top. Besides looking super festive, the flavors are great. I meant to eat a few and then share the rest but realized too late I had eaten the whole box! I did manage to deliver a couple to my tasting committee (read: my mom. i'm visiting family over the holidays and she's also a big fan of the traditional Dots) and she also decreed that these Christmas Dots are a mouth-watering success! Keep it going, Tootsie! What will they bring us for Valentine's Day or Easter? I can't wait to find out!
