My daughter found this candy, I’m not sure where, and gave it to me one day. That’s sweet, and helpful. I need more things to write about after all. I didn’t know Charms made anything other than Blow Pops to be honest. I was always more of a Blow Pop than a Tootsie Pop kid growing up, so I am quite surprised to learn they also make these Minipops. Doing some research, and turns out Charms is owned by Tootsie, and they may lots of different kind of pops. And to think, up until writing this, I believed that there was some deep rivalry between the center-filled-lollipop brands. But, nope, they’re the same company. But now I know and so do you. Now root beer float Minipop…

There’s a mild generic root beer flavor that really doesn’t have any standout characteristics. There’s a bit of spicy and bit of wintergreen, you know, standard hard candy stuff. There’s a distinct lack of strong vanilla in it, which is odd because it’s trying to pass itself off as a root beer float. In fact there’s nothing float about it. It tastes like plain root beer to me.

Yeah, so, this isn’t a root beer float flavor. But, it’s not a bad root beer flavor. So I’ll give it a passing grade (whatever that means in this case). I wouldn’t go seeking it out by any means, but it won’t leave you disappointed if you have it, and that’s really all you can ask for from a root beer (float) lollipop.
