“Midgees”

by jenncard

Technically this doesn’t belong on the blog because it doesn’t deal with brownness, but it is still an inappropriate find that needs to be commented on. On our trip to San Francisco, SJ was craving tootsie rolls so we stopped at Target to get some. Instead of getting the average brown kind, she decided that what she really wanted was the fancy white vanilla tootsie rolls. I know that I could go in-depth into that, but what I really want to emphasize is the politically incorrect label on the Tootsie Roll wrapper. Out of all the words that a company can think of to signify small, cute tootsie rolls was “midgees” really the best option that they had?
