: : Where does this phrase come from?

: It means let's try it and see what happens. Perhaps, let's try this sweet and 'see' what it tastes like. A gobstopper - a large round sweet - changes colour as you suck it. Suck it and see what happens?

Maybe it's just my dirty mind, but I'd advise Anon to be careful where he or she uses this phrase. Of course it may very well be about gobstoppers but it can be construed as very naughty.
