    hmm 12 kids, and they eat cookies as fast as my kids do… but we must remember thats a whole heck of alot of cookies….

    i’m going to say it will take them 36 months.

  3. heather says:

    if they each eat about 4 cookies per minute
    12 would eat 2 boxes per minute
    and my estimated 2011sold boxes of 4,600,000 boxes in 54 months
