First impressions are there's nothing to go on, but I'm

fairly certain now that it's the relationship of the food letters

and the number of people who eat it.

Best guess is it's the individual letters and their number order in the alphabet.

I have been on this ‘forever’ LOL Embarassed Laughing

I started on the premise that it was to do with number order of the letters
In the food, ie a =1, b =2 etc.
It was fairly obvious that it couldn’t be the full words added up as it wasn’t literally adding up.
Then I noticed ‘baked beans’ was 22, and the ‘b’s’ are number 2 in alphabet order.
So it’s the opening letters of each food that gives us the numbers.

So ‘expresso coffee’ would be 53.

I may be wrong of course.
