Seriously, I can be a bit old school. I absolutely love tootsie pops. My obsession for them is similar to my obsession with pizza. I finally have the answer to the question that everyone has been asking for decades!



Tootsie pops have been around even before I was born, perhaps maybe even my Nana too. 1931 to be exact. Tootsie Pops are hard candy lollipops filled with chocolate-flavored chewy Tootsie Roll. They were invented in 1931 by Lukas R. "Luke" Weisgram, an employee of The Sweets Company of America. Go figure, he worked in sweets, was around sweets, it goes hand in hand.

Do you happen to remember the commercial?

The owl ends up biting into it after three licks. Now, that is cheating!

A new study found that it actually takes 1000 licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop. You read that right, 1000. The age old question has now been answered!
