We examine the Toeplitzness of products of composition operators and their adjoints. We show, among other things, that the adjoint of C_phi times C_phi is strongly asymptotically Toeplitz for all analytic self-maps phi of the unit disk, and that C_phi times its adjoint is Toeplitz if and only if phi is the identity or a rotation. Also, we see that C_phi times its adjoint can exhibit varying degrees of asymptotic Toeplitzness.
