A message for Tootsie Roll

Dear Mr. Roll,
Would you be interested/available to help sponsor our annual parade float in the 2nd biggest St. Patrick’s Day parade on the East Coast? Each year our float throws Tootsie Rolls to the kids along the parade route, and we estimate last year we threw over 15,000 Tootsie Rolls.

As you can imagine, this adds up in cost. Our total budget is $100 annually. Is there any way to get coupons for Tootsie Rolls? We’d like to toss as many as possible this year, and were hoping you guys could help us out with some free Tootsie Rolls. Think of the children!

We’d be glad to send pictures of previous year’s floats (or just of the Raleigh St Pat’s Parade) for your interest and amusement. It’s all about fun. The crowd gets a kick our of our floats, and the kids LOVE the treats! Please help in any way possible. You can email me back with any help, comments, or just well-wishes. Thank you!

Yours truly,

Ulf O’Brien


  1. That came out longer than I thought it would be. Yes, that’s what she said. I’ll let you know if anything happens with it. Yes, that’s what she said.

  2. Still, maybe not as humorous as our letter to Guinness last year. Maybe we can try them again too… cuz it’s like the library in Shawshank Redemption – if we keep asking, maybe they’ll finally get tired of our letters and give us free stuff. Just call me Andy Defresne.

  3. Did they really say yes?  If so please ask them to send some tootsie pops.  I believe that would be the same company.
