How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? As a kid i was baffled that no one has figured this out so i did it it took me 730 licks on the first try, but the over all average for me was 734.2. When i finished my tongue was cut up and sore i couldn't talk well, but the scars got me all the pussy in 3rd grade.

I think the number of licks depends on how acidic your saliva is, and potentially what flavor the sucker is, because the different flavors have different chemical properties.

Jesus i'm slower than a sloth. What if the line "the world may never know" was a marketing tactic so people would go out and buy multiple lollipops just so they can find out.

Unfortunately, the answer depends on who you ask. A group of students at Swarthmore Junior High conducted an extensive study on the subject and concluded that getting to the center of a Tootsie Pop took a statistical average of 144 licks. However, the more ambitious and distrusting engineering students at Purdue University chose instead to rely on a “licking machine” modeled after the human tongue for their results. The Boilermakers found it took an average of 364 licks. And while other studies have been done, all the results vary. So in the end, only one thing is certain: The world may never know.

tl;dr? it depends on who you ask
