Invented by Luke Weisgram in 1931, Tootsie Pops were originally a product of The Sweets Company of America. The company's name later changed to Tootsie Roll Industries to reflect its signature product. The product itself was named after Weisgram's nickname for his daughter Clara, who was part of the inspiration for the Tootsie Pop.
Tootsie Pops are most famous for the tag line, "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll Center of a Tootsie Pop?" as well as the classic accompanying commercial. In said commercial, a small boy asks a cow, fox, turtle and owl the famous question. The animals each pawn the question off to the next, claiming they have always bitten into a Tootsie Pop. When the boy finally asks the owl, he begins to lick it but gives up after three licks and bites into the center.
