    Last test (for me) was 356.

    Did you actually try, though?

    Yes. I was licking it all day. I was doing extra work for The Fifth Wave and had a tootsie pop to pass the time. I remember doing it when they were shooting the scenes with the 4 buses.

    Nice! I wasn't being serious in the OP, but I actually did wonder about that somewhat. That's pretty interesting, actually, as I thought it would take a much higher amount of licks.

    Many test have been done but most are inaccurate because they use robots instead of humans and sand paper instead of a real tongue. The outcome is different from person to person though.
