Asteroid

Here is my solution...

I removed my key...

Used a fuzzy match process to get around the spelling of atomic ( :-) thanks for spotting and fixing this @patrick_digan and @JoeM )

That is truly a spooky amount of calories!

My solution:

This one was more difficult than I initially thought! I also manually corrected the spelling of "Atomic Fireball".

Also, note that the solution uses nutrient.x.value, which means we're assuming that the bag Qty is number of 100-g servings (not pieces). So, we're assuming 30 x 100-g servings of candy corn (3 kg or 6.6 lbs of candy corn!!) and not 30 pieces of candy corn.

No wonder it's 34,795 calories! Given that assumption, the whole bag is 8,800 grams or 19.4 lbs! Now, that is a candy haul!

If we use the nutrient.x.measures (assume the bag Qty is in pieces), then we get a much more reasonable(-ish) 4,256 calories for the bag. I calculated it both ways (assuming Qty = 100-g servings, and also assuming Qty = pieces), because I was curious!

Got it after spotting the typo :)

Solved. Inelegant. Barely holds together. But works.
