How many licks does it take ? remember the wise old owl? he said it took 3 licks because after the third lick it was inevitable - he would bite down and get to that center. Question: Did you ever try to count the licks it took? Did you ever succeed? How far did you make it before you crunched? I usually did not lick my lollies but I was more of a sucker er... I sucked on them but I did try to count licks, I would usually loose count and end up biting the dern thing probably around 22 or so.

I can't imagine many people actually "lick" their way to the center. I'm more of a sucker too :) and, like you, I end up crunching into it maybe halfway through...I don't have that much patience.

Oh I remember doing this! But would always give up. LOL I would suck on them until I got to the center. It's funny my youngest had her first chocolate one the other day and didn't like it. I remember that was everyone's favorite when I was a kid. LOL

oh my favorite was always the orange ones... I liked the way the orange looked with the chocolate underneath I guess. there is a car paint being used on volkswagon beatles now that reminds me of this same look.

This is too funny, orange was my least favorite. That's cool about the VW paint job. Who would have thought?

Nope, never bothered to try counting licks, I just sucked that puppy for a while and then chomped down. Always hated how it got stuck in your teeth, but boy, they were good!

Inever cared much for the tootsie center - but did very much like the candy outside. I think the worst on the teeth though were those charms blow pops.

Oh this is a good one! I remember trying to succeed in licking my way to the center of a Tootsie Pop. I did manage to get further than the 3 licks that the old owl did. Can't remember how many though. Cute discussion. Brought back some memories.
