An interesting volume experiment

My MIL turned 70 on Saturday, and as a present from the kids, we gave her 70 Hershey's Hugs and 70 Hershey's kisses. (luckily there are ~75/small bag; the label said 81. Guess not!) Finding the appropriate container ended up being an interesting volume experiment.

A quart jar was six kisses too small.
A regular vase ended up being only 2/3 full (which would have worked had I had fake flowers to put in the top).
We ended up using a rectangular vase that my husband planted paperwhites in one year.
