How Many Gumballs Fit in a 1 Quart Mason Jar?

If you are asking this question, then you must be planning a party or an event.


A one-quart mason jar has the capacity of 32 fluid ounces. We're assuming that you want to fill the gumballs to the top so that they don't rattle around inside the jar.

Calculation is approximate as gumballs are NOT alway perfectly round and the diameter varies slightly.

1"  diameter 55-60 (approx 3/4  lbs)
