Hail Halx, et al!

I extracted the following information from here:
http://www.tootsie.com/memoriesLicksMachine.html

The Licking Machine

We (Tootsie Inc.) are aware of three studies that have been conducted. Each group contacted us to inform us of the results of their experiments:

A group of engineering students from Purdue University recorded that their licking machine, modeled after a human tongue, took an average of 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. They tried the same licking test on 20 volunteers and found that the average licks to the center were 252 licks.

Plans for the Purdue licking machine

I could use one of these.

A chemical engineering doctorate student from the University of Michigan recorded that his licking machine required an average of 411 licks per Tootsie Pop.

A group of students at Swathmore School used human lickers in a scientific experiment and determined it took an average of 144 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Personally, I believe surface area of tongue, licks per second and oral moisture content are all significant factors that have not been addressed. What about non-human tongues? I demand a grant for further research and 1,000 volunteer tongues!

im guessing that this is an ice cream kind of like a paddle-pop with something in the centre.

depends on if its a person with a really course, rough tongue.

id have to say about 500... ?? but thats a rough guess.

but if its more like a chupa chup, then it must be around 750 ??

There they are in their wrappers. I tried to find a picture of one half eaten but I couldn't

They're lolli pops with a chocolate type center.

It depends on how much pressure you apply to the t-p and how far down your tongue you travel.
