It’s commonly known that one metric tonne of tomatoes are thrown at La Tomatina. But how many tomatoes make up one tonne?
150,000 to be exact. That’s enough tomatoes to fill 14,000 bottles of tomato sauce, enough tomatoes to make juice for 400,000 Bloody Marys and cover 548,000 pizzas with tomato paste.
Plus, if you wanted to eat those tomatoes straight up, you’re looking at a total of 7,350,000 calories. But joining the fight at La Tomatina is sure to burn those buggers right off!
