Your dentist called! GBL has indeed quit purchasing tootsie rolls, and the candy dish is now limited to hard candy. Although the candy is meant for eating, unfortunately many of the tootsie rolls were getting ground into the carpet, making a mess for our awesome cleaning crew. We’ve tried to replace the tootsie rolls with some alternative candy that we hope you find equally tasty.
You might be interested to know the history of our candy dish. A BBA Marketing class conducted a space study analysis for GBL as part of a class project. The student team suggested the candy bowl as a way to make the space more welcoming.
We have considered adding fruit and healthier snacks from time to time as well, but perishability and price limit us to bite size candies. Hopefully the sugar rush helps your studying!
