So I ask again -- how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Will the world ever know? Or will Mr. Owl snork down another one in 3 licks? How does $50,000 sound to find out? Click here if you'd like to enter the How Many Licks Sweepstakes by Tootsie Roll. $50,000 sounds like an awful sweet treat to me! And for nostalgia sake, if you'd like to relive some of the old commercials, click here. Sweet!

How many licks?
Ever since 1970, we've all been wondering the same thing -- how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Tootsie Pops were invented in 1931. Chocolate was the original flavor. Other flavors to come along were cherry, orange, grape and raspberry, along with newer flavors like blue raspberry, watermelon, strawberry and pomegranate. In 2003, twenty million Tootsie Pops were produced everyday. If you would like to vote for your favorite flavor and suggest a brand new flavor, click here. I found some Tootsie Pop Drops recently. I didn't even know they still made those things. They're Tootsie Pops without the stick.
