Re: Marshmallows?

Since it takes all kinds to make the world go round, I have to say why I actually liked the marshmallow comparison.    

 

My feet have changed A LOT since my knee replacements, and buying shoes is now a much bigger deal than I’d like for it to be.   The more facts that can be shared orally and visually about a shoe, the better I like it, and the more it helps me decide whether that might be the right shoe for me.   I do look for lightweight shoes, and comparing the actual weight of the shoe to marshmallows gives me a very good idea about the weight I’m putting on my feet.

Re: Marshmallows?

So how many marshmallows did it take to match the shoe in weight?

 

Love me some s'mores or rice krispie treats

Re: Marshmallows?

I counted 22 large marshmallows on the scale.

She had to keep piling them on . . . I didn't count, but for her sake I hope she got it straight if she had to do this all day!!

Re: Marshmallows?

 I don't get why this was so weird.  Amy is pointing out how light weight the shoes are.  I think we all know how light marshmallows are.

 

I also swore during the presentation with Jayne Brown she said 12 marshmallows were the same weight as the shoes.  But I could be wrong.  She definitely wasn't piling a ton of marshmallows on the scale.  Both weighed 5 point some odd ounces and while it's the same weight, it's easy to imagine the weight of 12 marshmallows, IMO.
