I wonder just how common these kinds of contests were.

Like guess the weight of ___ and win it. Like cake walks? Is it just a small town affair?

I imagine they're quite common in states with farms like Iowa, Minnesota, etc, etc...

I always remember the "guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar and win it" kind of contests myself.

I am seeing the truth in this.

Oh man, we had one of those! for M&Ms, I was way off.

I never took part in a contest like that growing up but it looks like a cute idea. And dino prizes? Nice incentive. XD

Love that last panel btw. :D <3

Now that I'm an adult, I realize all the dino prizes were more of a promotion for the local dinosaur museum. xD It worked mostly. There was dinosaur prizes for so many things.

And thank you!

I never participated in those contests, and I kinda regret it now :P
And just gotta say the way you draw their facial expressions is so cute!!

Here in the UK I've seen "guess the weight of the cake" competitions at village fetes, where you are shown a list of ingredients and the cake.

Weight of a cake..? Like a normal cake or was this like 3 tiers and covered in stuff? xD

This is definitely a thing in Nebraska, so yeah, smaller towns or cities close to farmland for sure.

Good, seems like the midwest is proud of its food related contests. xD
