Found 21st Dec 2015
I was just curious, just a rough estimate of how many mints you would believe to be in this pack?

More than one, less than a million
1200 (_;)
One billion and four?
666?
Buy them,count them,then let us know (_;)
A single mint imperial weighs 6 grams (6g)

The bag on Amazon weighs 3KG - 3000 grams (3000g)

3000 divided by 6 = 500

I estimate there are 500 mints in the bag

But which factory's mint imperials is that weight for and is it the same one that manufactured the mint imperials in the bag in question?

Without those details I'd slap a generous margin on it. Maybe 3g to 10g. 300 to 1000 mints.

Don't bother counting them unless your scales have that function, just do it by weight. Weigh ten of them then divide that number by ten to get an average weight then divide the weight of the whole lot (ideally without the bag) by the average weight. That shouldn't be off by more than one or two (it depends on how much variation there is in individual weights).
depends on size
a 1kg bag of another brand did 50 bags of 7 which is... wait for it.... 350
so if the same size 1050
alot
brilly

i prefer this answer to the 6g one as it goes on a customer's report of this actual product
however my guess is 1051 to gazump brilly and win the prize

could be a different brand so might be way out, chances are that there were quite a few more imperials than the 350 assuming 50 bags was target and not 7 mints
i'm waiting for the official results X)

Ah, I thought they were from the same range. Either way, I've elbowed you out of the stakes and will claim the prize X) That's the Christmas dinner sorted!
