Tesco Sliced Carrots In Water, 300g

Post by Dyched » Fri Nov 27, 2020 2:07 pm

Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to the 2nd round of the Tin Food Count. First off I’d like to thank Redbeard for quickly getting this contest back up and running in such difficult times. I’d also like to thank him for passing on the baton and allowing me to be your host for this weekends event. This weeks challenge is to guess the correct amount of Sliced Carrots and the correct amount of Water that the mentioned Carrots have been gently massaging in.

Points will be awarded as follows

Carrot Slices Winner = 5 Points
Water Liquid Winner = 3 Points

An extra bonus point is also available to anyone who guesses the exact correct amount of each.

This weeks event will run until approximately 14.00 Saturday 28 November 2020 and the winner(s) will be announced ahead of our clash at the Etihad against Manchester City.

Here’s the table so far this campaign
Burnleylad 5
Zlatan 3

So then Ladies and Gentlemen without further ado I announce that Round 2 of the Tin Food Count is open. Good luck everyone who takes part and remember it’s not about the winning but the taking part that counts, but winning is bloody lovely.


*We’re having slight technical difficulties here at Tin Count HQ in regards to posting a picture of the mentioned item of choice. Please bare with us and rest assured all is being done to sort the issue.

Well, that's an excellent Count OP, Dyched.

I shall however give the Quantities a little more thought before posting my entry.

'Estimates For The Etihad' has a certain ring to it, don't you think?

As indeed does 'City 1 Burnley 2'. :D

There were a few doubts. But having seen my vast CV of hosting events such as the Balon d’or, The Academy Awards, The Noble Prize amongst others it was time for me to step up and propel my career to new heights.

I think, one thing more disturbing than that actual review is. Why would one eat them after finding “mold floating around”.

They seem to me like a sore loser in past Tin Food Count Competitions. We don’t do that here.

Following the recommencement of the TFC, I have dusted off the old copy of “Peabody’s Guide to Palindromic Predictions” that I found whilst wandering around an old bookshop in Thirsk a few years ago (was a 4th edition reprint and had lost the sleeve cover so got it for less than the marked price of £17)

Dyched - Sorry but I must point out that it's 'Tinned Food Count', not 'Tin'.

Nonetheless, our local BTFCA rep, Carrots123, has contacted me to express his delight at your chosen commodity and at your capable performance so far. :D

Carrot slices: 4

Juice: 290ml

Who said I'm a cheat?

To be serious....

Well done Dyche for taking this up. It looks a particularly tricky selection. After all, sliced can mean lengthways or widthways.

Anyway my real estimate:

Carrot slices: 43

Juice: 92ml

Seems a bargain. If you get the whole market town of mold in a tin of carrots there's scarcely any room left for carrots or juice.

When I saw it was crotties in brine I suspected the unseen hand of the Admiral at work.

So I predict there are 56 slices of nyctalopia repellant,

And,

66 mls of Joooosay.

Three points on the morrow.

Thank you Dyched. What a job you have, almost as difficult as Bailey Peacock-Farrell's tomorrow.

Me and Spot have looked into this and reveal

85 slices of carrot and 155mls of jus

Thank You everybody for your Estimates for the Etihad so far.

We’ve a couple of entries that have guessed at the same value

Carrot Slices

Bosscat - 85
RalphCoatesComb - 85

Water

Bosscat - 150ml
fatboy47 - 150ml
ChuckyPad - 150ml

I’ve looked into the archives of this event and on Sunday 22nd November the same problem occurred. As Bosscat had his entry first I’m allowing RalphCoatesComb to reconsidered his Carrot Slices estimate and also fatboy47 to reconsidered his Water estimate. If your happy with your estimates I must stress any winning points will be shared equally. Bosscat if you want to go ahead and reconsidered that’s also available. Bare in mind there are a few estimates that are close by in your estimates.

Edit: ChuckyPad also with the estimate of 150ml of Water.
