I’ll keep it short and simple: if you’d like to bring some joy to your home, I highly recommend buying yourself a giant box of Tootsie Roll Pops.

As a kid, Tootsie Roll Pops were something we got as a treat at the gas station. Who doesn’t remember the joy of sifting through one of those big yellow boxes with the cut-out top searching for your favorite flavor? Who doesn’t remember the sorrow of only discovering they had orange left? I’m here to tell you that you can have one of those big yellow boxes all to yourself.

I took the plunge on Prime Day 2021 when the box was on super sale. As someone who covers these events year-after-year, I have to tell you that this may be the single greatest deal on a product I’ve ever purchased. Two days later the box arrived on my doorstep and my husband and I enjoyed daily Tootsie Roll Pops for months. Months. It was a small joy I looked forward to every single day; an easy dessert or mid-day break in the monotony that is life in lockdown.

Even when it’s not on sale, like now, it’s still a good deal. The box is currently $20.94, which works out to a little over $0.25 a pop. I don’t know what the going gas station rate is for Tootsie Roll Pop, but I have to imagine that with inflation we’re probably up to $1.00 a pop.

So what’s holding you back? If you’re worried you’ll go through them at breakneck speed, trust me, you won’t. I tried. I really tried. It turns out it just takes a long time to get to the center of Tootsie Roll Pop, and if you eat too many in a row you start to rub your mouth raw.

The perk of being an adult is that there’s no one telling you not to buy yourself a 72-count box of Tootsie Roll Pops. In fact, there is someone right here telling you that this is something you deserve. Put it in your cart, press buy, and thank me later.
