Answering the age old question isn't as easy as one would think.
         One day after watching the History Channel I thought that I knew the real answer to just how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. But as I starting writing this little piece of work I discovered that there are many more answers. So let's now explore what the real answer is to how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop.

         Mr. Owl said a long time ago in a television commercial that it takes three licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. On a show on the History Channel a computer said it takes 317 licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. But it didn't end there. A group of engineering students from Purdue University reported that its licking machine, modeled after the human tongue, took an average of 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. Now that is 47 licks more then the computer on the History Channel.

         According to Candy Favorites.com the average number of licks it took to get to the center of a Tootsie roll lollipop was 678. Another test said it took 881 licks to reach the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. It took 252 licks from some volunteers to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. Michigan’s licking machine took 411 licks to reach the center. One test used human tongues averaging of 144 licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop.

          Now researchers on YouTube said it takes over 9,000 licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. So now looking back through all of these numbers we have a a range of anywhere from three to 9,000 licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop. So what did we learn here? Absolutely nothing! We are no closer to knowing the answer to how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll lollipop then the man on the moon does. So the best thing to do at this point is go out to the store and buy a bagof tootsie roll lollipops and test it out for yourself. It's getting close to Halloween so you should be able to pick up a bag of tootsie roll lollipops fairly cheap for your own private test.
