The old question "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a lollipop?", is a question that is very difficult to answer. Some have tried to count themselves but have failed. This could be for many reasons such as the following:

  • Lost count of licks
  • Ran out of time
  • Amount of saliva in the mouth
  • The lollipop expired
  • The temptation was to great and you bit down and took a bite
  • Tongue size

Thus there is no way to measure the actual amount of licks it takes to get to the center of a lollipop.

It only takes the wise old owl three licks, but then he bites down on it. So, as he is wont to repeat, we may never know...
