Tootsie rolls ? There should be a law against giving any candy like that to anyone. Oh, so give it soldiers and families of need- HA HA. Who is going to foot the bill for all the dental work for these poor soldiers and people of need ? The taxpayers that's who. I guess that these benevolent dentists want to make sure that no tooth rotting candy goes to waste, that would cut into their business.

Give the candy to the insurgents. The bad guys will be the ones who have no teeth.
