Eating Styles: Sucker Edition Sam January 27, 2011 Candy, Eating Styles 4 Comments It’s been more than 40 years since Tootsie Roll Pops first posed the question: “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?” Since then, countless children (and college students) have attempted to answer this question, with mixed results. Have any of you had the patience to find out the answer to this question yourself? In other words, when you eat a sucker, do you lick it until the end? Or do you give in and…CRUNCH!!! Cast your votes, and if you know the answer to the famous question, for the love of God, explain in the comments.

If it’s those little Dum Dum suckers or Chupa Chups, I crunch into those. But if it’s one of those monstrously huge bubble gum-centered ones, I lick until I get all the way down to a thin shell of a candy covering the chewy gum heart. And then I bite. Reply Eddie January 27th, 2011 Wow… what an amazing throwback. I still count to three, like the owl. one, two, thrrrrrrree, three licks. Reply Kath January 31st, 2011 I like that engineering students have created licking machines 🙂 Reply Sophia March 5th, 2011 Ha! My three friends and I did it and we all got about the same answers. Mine was 773 and I even licked the tootsie roll part in the middle. :p Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Current [email protected]* Leave this field empty Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
