      according to kosher eye
      "And last “licks” from our interview:

      Coming soon: Tootsie Roll Industries is going to “pop" another big kosher surprise!"

        Well, it's been 10 months since your mention of "Tootsie Roll Industries is going to “pop" another big kosher surprise!"

        So far, the company website does NOT list any new products becoming Kosher. And guessing by the hint you were giving, I was hoping that Tootsie Pops would be the one Kosher product added...what gives?

          first, I copied koshereye's interview so if you have any snarky comments or complaints to make, you should direct it at them. Second, some tootsie pops have become kosher certified-I saw a box of these (http://www.candywarehouse.com/wildber...) at the candy expo with the OU. The rest of the tootsie lollipops will be come kosher-they are made at different factories and all factories are not kosher certified yet. The reason why there is no announcement is that they are waiting for that to happen. They do not want to announce they are kosher and for people to buy ones without the OU. The reason why tootsie rolls were announced and there was no need for a hasgacha on the package is b/c they were all made in 1 place that was kosher certified .

            No, didn't mean to be "snarky" at all, sorry if I came across that way...thanks so much for the update. You just seemed to be "in the know" so I was only "hoping" you had the latest info for us "commoners." Glad to see these wild berry pops are kosher...I guess I'll hold onto these "regular" pops that someone in my office gave me and wait for the "all-kosher" signal. Thanks again!

              Be aware I have seen boxes of these pops w/o the OU so be wary

      Just to be clear, Are these kosher as of now, without the need for the ou on the package, or is this what is going to be kosher once an ou is on the packaging?

        Also, notice that Tootsie Rolls are absent from the list. Elsewhere on the OU site is a statement that Toosie Rolls are under the OU, but they're not on the OU list.

            For what it's worth, I spoke w/ an official OU kashrus spokesperson (rabbi) this weekend who confirmed to me that regular tootsie rolls are kosher now without the need to wait until the new packaging.
