Wikipedia: Tootsie Roll
Tootsie Roll is a chocolate-like, taffy-like candy that has been manufactured in the United States since 1907. The candy has qualities similar to both caramels and taffy without being exactly either confection, and does not melt. The manufacturer, Tootsie Roll Industries, is based in Chicago, Illinois. It was the first penny candy to be individually wrapped in America.

Wikipedia: Starburst (confectionery)

non-chocolate-flavored Tootsie Rolls are basically just Starburst, but they also have vanilla, and they’re easier to open.

After trying cherry and lemon flavored kinds, I have come to the conclusion that Tootsie Rolls are chocolate flavored Starbursts. Discuss.
