‘How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?’ That’s what the folks at Queen Anne’s new Umpqua Bank are trying to find out. To celebrate the opening of its flagship store in QA, Umpqua Bank is running a three day Lollipop Lick-Off from today, Wednesday, July 20 to Friday, July 22.
For those of you wondering what a Lollipop Lick-Off is, here’s your chance to find out. Patrons of the new QA branch and Umpqua staff are all welcome to compete. Competitors are divided into three categories based on age (one to six, seven to 12, and 13 and up), and pitted against each other and timed to see who can lick their lollipop the fastest until it’s all gone.
The winner in each category will receive a gift card to a local Queen Anne business. Visit the store during operating hours (9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays) to participate. The winners will be announced at the store on Saturday, July 23.
