Easter is just around the corner, and it’s an amazing time of year because you have the permission to gorge yourself on chocolate eggs; Lindt, Cadbury, Galaxy, the list goes on and on.

One of our favourite eggs at Smart Storage is the legendary Cadbury Creme Egg; gorgeous milk chocolate that coats a delectable white and yellow fondant filling. How amazing right?

So, the obvious question after this is… How many Creme Egg Minis can you fit in our storage units? Well, we’ve done the hard work already and calculated how many you can store, especially if you’re storing them to treat yourself.

The Mathsy Bit

Let’s start with the first half of this problem; what is the volume of a Cadbury Creme Egg Mini? To start, we need the dimensions of the egg. NO, not whether it’s 2D or 3D, but its width, length, and height!

A Creme Egg Mini has a length of roughly 3cm, a width of 2.5cm and a height of 2.5cm. Now that the easy bit is done, it’s time for the hard stuff; calculating the volume. The way to do this is to combine the volume of two ellipsoids, with one having a length of the distance between the tip of the egg and the line that defines the largest width, and the other having the length of the distance between the bottom of the egg and the same line.

Confusing, right? After this, you can work out the volume of the egg; we found that the Creme Egg Mini has a HUGE volume of… 0.00000982m3! Now, let’s see how many we can fit in some of our storage units!

What About a Locker Full of Creme Egg Minis?

One of our smallest units at Smart Storage has an area of 10sqft, which corresponds to an area of 1.28m3, which is roughly the same as the boot of a standard four-door car or a changing room. In this unit, you can fit 130,346 Creme Egg Minis!

Why Not Have a Van of Creme Egg Minis?

Our 50sqft storage units are the same as a one bedroom flat, or a standard Ford Transit. In terms of volume, it’s equal to 6.40m3, meaning you can fit way over half a million Creme Egg Minis inside – 651,731 to be exact!

Surely a Truck of Creme Egg Minis Would Suffice?

Imagine a truck full of Creme Egg Minis! A 7.5-tonne truck is equivalent to one of our 100sqft storage units. By following the same principles, it turns out you can fit 1.303 million Creme Egg Minis in this storage unit!

Let’s Go for the Full Whack!

One of our larger storage units that are available to rent is the 200sqft unit, which has a volume of 19.2m3. In terms of Creme Egg Minis, that would be the same as 1.949 million! That’s more than half the population of Wales… as Creme Eggs!

What a journey, eh? There are so many things that you can use our storage units for, even if you want to horde all the Cadbury Creme Egg Minis in your local area – it would be like Pokémon Go but with chocolate eggs! But how do you store yours?
