Halloween Letdown

Looking through the kid’s candy today, I was reminded of something.  There’s nothing like the letdown of discovering that you’ve eaten all of the good Halloween candy, only to be left with Tootsie Rolls (in all the assorted sizes).  I like the pops, and some of the new flavors are OK, but I just can’t understand why the chocolate-flavored Tootsie Rolls continue to exist as candy filler.

Does anybody else here like Tootsie Rolls?  Am I wrong here?

Instead, how about little packets of uncooked rice or beans?  Or even Ramen noodles?  That would still be lame, but it would be cheap, and you could at least make a meal when you were done eating all the good stuff.
