I don’t like Tootsie Pops but I love tootsie rolls and the fruit tootsie rolls, too. I live about a half hour from Winco, and they sell all varieties in bulk bins. They even have Tootsie Rolls Sours (not that sour but more flavors for the array). I stop in and buy some when I’m near Winco.

R11 born in 1991, so roughly 2.
R9 I understand the lollipops not being popular in an adult workplace setting because of the time it takes to eat them, but the Tootsie Roll thing is interesting. if you didn't mention the fruit-flavored ones still being popular, I would've theorized that maybe it had something to do with teeth (as R1 already mentioned).
I once knew a lady who told me she used to love Riesens and Bit-O-Honey when she was younger, but was cautious about enjoying them in her middle age because she had VERY old (70's era) fillings/dental work. Not sure if her concern was valid or not, but it's what she told me.

Another vote for candy corn. I only ever eat them around Halloween. There's just something about the sickeningly sweetness of it that appeals to me. I just buy one bag at Halooween.

Not necessarily maligned, but I like the Almond Snickers bars, and buy them at the airport in case I get hungry on the plane.
I love Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, too.
I can’t have sweets like these because I don’t have a shutoff valve and I can overdo it if I let myself. Toblerone is another guilty pleasure.I could buy a kilogram version of one at the Duty Free shop at the airport and then gnaw through it like a wood chipper. It’s so good.

I always thought that peanut brittle was some kind of old people's candy and why would you want to eat that.
However ... I visited a friend and asked her what she wanted me to bring her. She said See's peanut brittle, so I bought a box (package?) and brought some to her. She opened up the box, right away, and started eating it. I said, "Give me some of that ... let me taste." OMG. It was really good. Buttery and good texture.

I dislike and will completely skip Tootsie Rolls. Their not-quite chocolate flavor reminds me of German chocolate cake, which seems like watered-down chocolate.
I do, however, like Tootsie Pops, especially the orange ones.
Hershey Kisses are only acceptable in peanut butter blossom cookies.
For maligned candy, I like Werther’s Originals and Brach’s peppermints. I also love the chewy peppermints with a Christmas tree in the middle.
Brach’s had two great candies I don’t believe they make anymore — the butterscotch discs and gum balls covered in a translucent red candy coating. Some other company makes discs that never get smooth like the Brach’s versions did. I haven’t seen any facsimiles of the gum balls.

I used to like to take a small green (lime) Tootsie Roll, stretch it out a bit, stick one end in my nose and the other end in my mouth.
Then I'd walk into a room with it covered in a Kleenex, pretend to sneeze, remove the Kleenex, and watch the horrific reaction of people who thought it was an actual huge green booger dripping into my mouth from my nose.
Or sometimes I'd forgo the whole sneeze/Kleenex charade and just walk in licking the end that was in my mouth.
