The “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” commercial debuted in 1969, but it played throughout the 1970’s.
Most kids I know at least tried to figure it out many times, but none I know succeeded.
I have tried myself, but I never had any more success than Mr. Owl.
I have read online that quite a few University’s have done studies using a “licking” machine and had varying results. But I am guessing that’s no more accurate than using a nail gun to see how long it would take someone to hammer a skid together.
Have you ever tried the to see ow many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? Comment below.
