Nik-L-Nip is a brand of confectionery juice created in the early 20th century that comes in a variety of fruit flavors, marketed by Tootsie Roll Industries. The Nik-L-Nip brand name is a combination of the original cost of it (a nickel) and the preferred method of opening wax bottles, which is to nip(bite) the top off. Once the top of the small, bottle-shaped wax containers has been bitten off, one can drink the fruit-flavored syrup inside. Afterward the wax can be chewed like gum. The wax in Nik-L-Nip wax bottles is food-grade and non-toxic, although it is meant to be chewed and not swallowed.
