Doing a raffle at work where we have to guess how many are in a jar. Sad old me wants to find out the weight of one so I can calculate how many are in the jar.

buy a packet, read the side for the weight, and count the number of eggs inside.

save yourself time (but increase percentage error, by buying a small tube and not a bag)

don't forget to factor in the weight of the jar.

Great idea!

Anybody about to eat a small bag and willing to do a bit of counting?

Inaccuracy.

The more you have the more accurate you're likely to be.

Weighing lots and dividing by the number of eggs is far more accurate

Approximately 3.33g per egg based on the nutritional information which states.. "Serving Size 12 pieces (40.0 g)"

edit:the site says 39g per pack doesn't say how many in a pack though


Reach into your bag of tricks and pull another one...
