It’s contest time at Candy.com! We’ve got a fun one, too.

Here’s the scoop: Find our Lil’ Red Lollipop Girl somewhere on the Candy.com site. I’ve hidden her pretty well, so it’ll be interesting to see how fast it takes someone to find her. The first person to find Lil’ Red wins a $25 Candy.com Gift Certificate. (Post her whereabouts after this post or on Facebook or Twitter.)

I’ll throw out some clues if Lil’ Red is still MIA tomorrow morning.

Happy hunting and find our girl!

About an hour ago, I called Tootsie Roll Industries to get the straight dope on the cute little Indian guy that occasionally appears on Tootsie Roll wrappers.

According to the Tootsie Roll spokesperson, “Chief Shooting Star” wasn’t originally intended to signify good luck. Back in 1931 when Tootsie Roll Pops launched, the chief represented “children at play” and still does today.

No matter. My daughter and her friends collect all of their Chief Shooting Star wrappers and stash them in their jewelry boxes for good luck. The kind woman I spoke with at Tootsie Roll Industries says her own daughter crumples these special wrappers and makes a wish. I like that.

I re-crumpled the wrapper I photographed above and wished for a bouquet of cherry- and chocolate-flavored Tootsie Roll Pops for Valentine’s Day.

I hope my family is reading.

When it comes to candy, “Super-Size” doesn’t have to be a dirty word. It can actually be a whole lot of fun. Here are 5 super-sized treats to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth (or impossible friend) on your holiday gift list.

The 4.5 Pound Gummi Bear
You’re either going to think this bear is gross or great. For gummi bear fans, it’s the ultimate chew. 

Giant Tootsie Pops
I am a Tootsie Pop fan (chocolate and cherry flavors are the best!), so seeing these giant pops was like discovering great boots at DSW.

World’s Largest Mint Stick
Weighing in at 2 lbs., this mint stick on steroids should last until President’s Day.Over-the-Top Lollipop
The Melville Candy Company‘s Smile, Flower, and Peace Pops tip the scales at 2 lbs. And each one of these heavyweights rests on a 24-inch stick. Joe Melville (that’s him above lifting a 2-lb. pop), his dad Gary Melville, and the rest of the crew at the Massachusetts-based Melville Candy Company, make these and a bazillion other pops by hand. Really.

Big Hunk XL
“Go big or go home” seems most fitting here. Annabelle’s legendary Big Hunk chewy nougat bar comes in a king-sized version for your favorite hunk. Pop two in a stocking and you’re stuffed.
