The answer to this won't be the same for anyone. Depends on how you lick...

I lose count; I have licked until I got to the center, but never counted all the licks.

I've found scientific data! On average, it's 292.75 licks! Seriously. Students from two universities and a junior college actually took up the challenge to figure it out. But there are four different numbers, so I went and averaged it out. Check this out.

Oh my gosh . . . I remember trying to do this as a kid . . . my tongue was SO sore! I did eventually get my answer. I think it was like 300 something. Can't exactly remember, but it was a LOT.

I did this as a kid as well. I remember using a calculator and just adding +1 for every lick. Don't remember quite what I got to.
