(Sept. 23, 2014) – That’s a lot of doughnuts—2,400 of them, to be exact.

It took eight workers to deliver the giant box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts to a company in the United Kingdom.

The box is about 11.4 feet by 3 feet. The company won a Krispy Kreme contest by tweeting the most about the huge box. Krispy Kreme didn’t know how much the box weighed, but it does know it would cost about $2,600 to buy it in the U.S.

The company’s PR wing used the big box to promote “Krispy Kreme Occasions,” a division that offers custom doughnuts for corporate events and special occasions. They’ll even put chocolate name plates or corporate logos on doughnuts, according to USA Today.

The winning company–360 Resourcing–tweeted the appropriate response to its doughnut feast:
