the lil owl looked super smart in his lil glasses...

so i love tootsie pops, yea who wouldnt love something sweet with a chocolately center...i seriously remember the lil commercial with the owl that was like how many licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop. and i tried several times to count, but seriously, when youre a kid youre just happy someone had a lapse in judgement to give you candy in the first place so you devour it and today i found out that actualy scientific studies have been done in order to find out how many licks...and no, unlike the lil owl suggests, it doesnt just take 3.......

as a result of 4 studies provided by major universities in the U.S. the result was an average of 508 licks when licking both sides evenly and the Purdue student’s results of an average of 252 licks when concentrating on one side are remarkably consistent, so it would seem for an adult it takes around 250-ish licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop if only licking from one side and about twice that when licking both sides evenly.

awesome!! :D so now you know, about 500!. thats a long as time, but totally worth it!
