Random Thought: How Many Licks Does It Take to Get to the Center of a Tootsie Pop? We Have the Answer

Tootsie Pop

Do you remember the old animated TV commercial asking that burning question about the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? According to Mr. Owl, it only took three. Mr. Owl of course, bit the Tootsie Pop after the third lick. I know when I was a kid, it was almost impossible to resist the urge to bite so you get right to that great Tootsie Roll center. Well, some random guy with way too much time on his hands actually licked one side of a Tootsie Pop until until he hit the center.

He kept track of every lick on a sheet of paper and actually posted a picture of the tally sheet along with the half-licked Tootsie Pop. So the answer that has haunted for decades is actually, (insert drum roll here)…..850 licks!!! There you have it.
