The Wall of Beans Competition

Beany Window. Crop


We sell lots of tins of beans here at Eighth Day and not just the regular baked bean, we have Aduki, Butter, Mixed and Red Kidney beans as well, we also allow tinned Chick Peas and tinned tomatoes to inhabit the “Wall of Beans” (as we affectionately call it) as honorary beans!  We love our beans (and honorary beans) so much that we keep a league table of their sales.  See here for last year’s sales by clicking Wall of Beans.

So we thought what better than a competition, which allows our customers to guess how many of a particular bean we’ll sell in a given month. Of course it’s not just for fun, there’ll be a prize involved for the person whose prediction is the closest to the actual sales.

So at the start of every month we’ll announce which bean we have chosen for the month on Facebook & Twitter and you’ll have the chance to guess how many beans we’ll sell. To enter the competition simply Follow on Twitter/ Like on Facebook and let us know your answer by sending us a message on either Twitter or Facebook. At the end of the month we’ll tot up our sales totals and pick the nearest winner. The lucky winner will then get a tray (12 cans) of the beans/honorary beans of their choice.

Please note: you must be able to collect your tray of beans from the shop should you win a prize and we will not offer any alternative or cash prize.
