Does anyone remember the cello wrapped 1-1/2" squares of "Tootsie Roll Fudge"?

In the early 60's remember the dime store by my house having 2 big clear glass jars with metal lids with the Tootsie Roll logo silk screened on the front. One jar for chocolate and another for my favorite "Vanilla".

Price back then was 2 cents each and they were delicious. Better than the Kraft "Fudgies" in the gold foil.

    I remember the commercial, but I don't remember if I had the fudge, although I do remember having had Chunky.  The commercial went something like this:
    (Girl playing piano and singing): "I wuv Tootsie Woll Fwudge ..."
    (Her brother(?)): "Hey, there's no W in Tootsie Roll Fudge!"
    (Girl): "Tootsie Woll Fwudge contains no W.  It's smooth and cweamy!"

          I wish someone could dig it up and post it on YouTube. I did find one for "Winky Dink and You" to prove to my wife, who's (exactly) 9 years younger, that I wasn't making it up!  (I also found one for "Sugar Jets" cereal, but not the one I remember that ended, "Nnnyyyeeeooowww, Jets!"  My mom figured out that I had the measles when I could hardly eat any of my favorite cereal for breakfast! My first telescope was $1 with a Sugar Jets boxtop. I think the introduction of Trix made Jets less popular. I wrote a story called "The Day of the Trids"--title stolen from the B-movie "The Day of the Triffids"--in which a bunch of rabbits formed a society called the Trids and hoarded all the Kix, saying "Kix are for Trids!")

            I have an original Tootsie Fudge box (Vanilla)--still full of product! I can't imagine many full boxes exist. I would imagine it's quite stale after 40+ years.
