    We'll just do it by weight - lets call it 10 metric tons of fluffy sweet goodness.

    hmmm...

    marshmallow ~ 2cm diametre x 3cm tall ~ 10cm3 = 0.001m3 (only accounting for a bit of squishing to fill the gaps, so this is a max volume really)
    So 10M marshmallows occupy ~ 10,000m3 (imagine a space 20m x 20m x 25m)

    That's roughly equivalent to a small/medium sized office block about 8 stories tall.

    Shipping's gunna be a bugger.

    Al

    P.S. the fact that I bothered to do ^this^ has GOT to be worth a bit of rep - eh folks?

    you could just send a crate at a time, saves on having to rent an office block.

    I prefer the idea of filling a warehouse to the rafters, giving you all cryptic clues to it's location, and then waiting for you to find it and have to eat your way inside!

    If the Stocktober secret phrase is anything to go by, I'd get it with the first clue.

    That would be the best ever competition!

    Or a Very Pc style super market sweep?
