AFT Says To Give Union-Made Candy for Halloween

Just to show you that I don't disagree with everything a teachers union says, I agree with this recommendation from the American Federation of Teachers:

If you plan to distribute candy to trick-or-treaters this Halloween, show support for union-made products by choosing union-made candy. Union candy suppliers include...Tootsie Roll Industries (Tootsie Roll, Tootsie Pops, Flavor Roll, Frooties, Child s Play, Dots, Andes, Caramel Apple Pops, Charms, Blow Pop, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies, Charleston Chew, Fluffy Stuff Cotton Candy, Charms Family Fun, Junior Mints and Cellas.)

Yes, please give out Tootsie Roll products on Halloween. I agree with the AFT 100% on this recommendation.

Info from the EIA (see blogroll at left).

Full disclosure: I own a couple shares of Tootsie Roll and have actually lost money on it. Buy Tootsie Rolls. Help America's teachers--or at least one of them.

Those are the cheapest and least liked candies on the circuit. Sound like the union may have some stock in those companies as well. I much prefer the better stuff-Snickers, Three Musketeers, KitKat's. If I am going to end up stuck with a bucket full of candy, it's darned sure going to be stuff I like.

EllenK--perhaps some of the other candies out there are yucky, but Tootsie Rolls? What are you, some kind of Communist or something? :-)

You're forgetting candy corn and those godawful peanuts.

Tootsie is one of my favorite investment stocks these days.
