How many Tater Tots? — the answer!

Yesterday I posted this problem:

Great Fermi problem that I just heard on the Ask Me Another quiz show on NPR:

Estimate how many Tater Tots were consumed in the U.S. during all of 2017.

The answer (from CBS News) is pretty surprising.

(It surprised me, at any rate.)

You’ll find it below the line.

Coming soon…

Almost there…

Almost there…

It’s 38 billion!

That’s billion, with a “b.” Who’d’a thunk it?
