Final Update for Tonight

Wow! What a day! I have to say I have never experienced anything like this haha. To all the fans that have been telling me I need to watch the show, I will be getting the season DVD's this weekend and watching it!

But first, to the numbers:

Total number of Mars Bars purchased for campaign: 2204
Total donations received for the campaign: $561.27 (after all Paypal fees) - we will allocate this money once we figure out the total costing of all of the chocolate.

Total Mars Bars planning to be shipped: 2952
(We hope to find some more in Canada tomorrow. The only issue is that we need to have it there on or before Friday...we will update you as soon as we find out more info)

Total Mars Snickers bars already prepared for shipment: 3024
(We should have another 4500 bars or so available by Monday if more people get together.)

If we can get more people, we can make this a massive pallet (or more!) full of chocolate Mars bars and ship it via an 18 wheeler truck! This would require approximately 25-30 thousand bars of chocolate! Now that would make a statement! We really need someone to volunteer to make a video if they live nearby the station. That would be great for all the fans.

Many people have given us the idea of stuffing their building with marshmallow since on the pilot episode, Veronica was referred to as a "marshmallow". IF we get enough responses from people supporting this, we will work on getting marshmallows as well to make an even bigger statement! Since marshmallows take up more space than chocolate, this may be a better option. Comment here or e-mail us if you think this is a good idea.

Well, good night Veronica lovers! Will be up bright and early calling Canada!

from the pilot episode, wallace said "You're a marshmallow, Veronica Mars"

i could definitely get behind marshmallows.

i mean.. at this point, we need to make a HUGE statment, and if we could kind of "stuff" with marshmallows...

it would be AMAZING if we could get an entire 18 wheeler full of chocolate and marshmallows. that would definitely have to get news coverage, the kind that just can't be ignored.

i say lets do it.

anyone else?

yes! I totally support the marshmallows! :) Veronica Mars.. she's a marshmallow :)

I love the marshmellow idea, mars bars& marshmellows, what's more veronica mars than that.

Anonymous said...

Thats awesome work! Thank you so much for doing this! You guys rock! I'm definitly ordering from your website in the future!

Marshmellows would be awesome! I say all the way!

Christina B said...

Marshmellows are a great idea! Thanks for all your hard work, I really hope this works, and after you watch the show--I know you'll agree!!

i also support the marshmellow idea... maybe even more so than the snickers bars, as it has a direct relation to VM. Just include a note with the "VM, youre a marshmellow" or "Dawn O, youre a marshmellow" or something.

Michael said...

Yeah. We could also do:
Marsmallows, as stated.
and Snickerdoodles.

As Wallace once said: "You're a marshmallow, Veronica Mars." And VM loves baking Snickerdoodles for Wallace, which was uncovered in that one episode I can't remember. LOL.

Anonymous said...

I actually mentioned marshmallows and snickerdoodles in the last post, so I'm all for the marshmallow thing.
Do they even sell snickerdoodles?

Anonymous said...

Stock piling marshmallows should be a fairly easy venture too, they're everywhere!

Save said...

i didn't jump on the snickerdoodle bandwagon, even though that would be SO perfect, because the cw's problem with food deliveries is that they won't take non-packaged and sealed food. snickerdoodles come fresh, but there aren't any companies that make, package, and seal them (i looked).

AND... marshmallows take up a TON of space. So... if you think about us making a statement - i think our best bet is to finish buying up all the mars bars we can get our hands on, and then we just buy marshmallows until we have a whole 18 wheeler full of candy and marshmallows

i mean, can you imagine how much space an 18 wheeler's worth of marshmallows and candy would take up - we're talking about a MOUNTAIN of fan support, which is impossible to ignore!

SupComTabz said...

marshmellows would rock!

Save said...

hey guys - let's go ahead and buy the rest of the snickers bars that sachin has ready for us, but then lets move on to marshmallows, they're more bang for our buck at this point

everybody agree??

Anonymous said...

I was wondering if we can have the Truck that transport the Marshmellows to have a picture and quote of Veronica on it or at mostly have a truck that has some Veronica Mars or mars bar related thing on the truck that would show VM

SuperSweet said...

I fully support the marshmellow idea. Because you know Veronica Mars.... she's a marshmellow.

Ariel said...

do the marshmallows!! please do it. 15 comments should do it. we need our favorite teen p.i. back! and your loved for saling Mars Bars!

piperyoung said...

Absolutely, when we finish with the chocolate, the addition of marshmallows to the shipment turning this into an entire 18 wheeler filled with MARS bars and marshmallows, is a fantastic idea. I actually like the marsmallows more than the snickers almonds. But either way, I'll donate again. Let us know what we need to do to make this as big as possible.

Is this at all possible one big shipment of chocolate and marshmallows? In all likelihood the fans would donate to the rental of a giant truck to take all the stuff there. If I wasn't studying for my med school finals I'd volunteer to drive it to Cali.

Thanks so much Sachin for doing this for us. You might think we are crazy, but hopefully it will have a benefit for your company. I know you are getting tons of exposure!!

You should send videos or photos of ya'll packing Mars Bars to the CNN! Media exposure would be great! :)

marshmellows are a fantastic idea!

Underzenith said...

I love you guys!!!!! Veronica Mars must live on!

MN Jet Puffed! said...

I am down with the Marshmallows!!! Let's do it- I will order more! Thanks again to the Indian Food Store. You guys rock!!! Seriously Rock- if I ever need lots of candy or special candies I am ordering from you! Please make the marshmallows possible (even my mom wants to buy some). Thanks again- y'all are amazing!

marshmallows!! said...

save veronica mars! marshmallows! the jumbo kind!

veronica fan save the show said...

do it! do the marshmallows!

Anonymous said...

I may be able to get a video of the Mars Bars arriving, I live pretty nearby! I'll be check back at this blog so it'd be great if you say the time/date they're being delivered :)

YME said...

I vote for moving onto marshmallows once Sachin manages to deplete all of North America of its supply of Mars brand Bars. The Snickers logo doesn't work for me. It's all about the "Mars"!

Jon said...

I just ordered a 6-pack. I hope this works! We need this show back on TV!

Anonymous said...

Wait, so how many bars is this TOTAL? All these numbers are so confusing...I will be buying some tomorrow though!

Marshmallows will get people going WAY more than Mars bars, trust me.

violetpretty said...

Thank you so much for helping out VM fans, we're forever indebted to you, even if we do not get results. After the Mars Bars are sold out, I suggest we send marshmallows because
A) they're much cheaper
B)they take up more space so we can fill an 18 wheeler more easily
C)They also have relevance to the show. The title character has been referred to as a 'marshamallow' a few times.
If not marshmallows, than certainly Snickers Almonds, since they do mention SNICKERdoodles in season 1 a couple times as well. Again thank you so much for your efforts!

Veronica said...

Hahaha yeah that would be great if we could get a pic of Veronica on the side of the truck. Im really happy for the Jericho fans! But now we're kind of in their shadow with the sending of food. BUT If we can fill that truck!! Now That will really set us apart! I said that we should get Mars Bars from Canada earlier, but actually maybe we should go for some marshmallows now as they really would fill the truck faster! Sachin can you get your hands on some marshmallows?!??? Like others have said, they are definetally more appropriate as they were mentioned on the show!
OH I Hope Someone Can Get A Video Of This!!!!! Stephanie Z:)

Gil said...

I think the marshmallows are a great idea. I actually like it better than sending Snickers Almond bars, but I understand why we're sending the Snickers bars.

Gil said...

I should have posted this earlier, but the complete quote from the pilot is "You're a marshmallow, Veronica Mars. A Twinkie." So if we run out of marshmallows (or even if we don't) we can also send Twinkies.

Anonymous said...

I like the marshmellow idea too, hopefully we can make an impact.

Ms. Molly said...

gil: your right, Wallace says to Veronica: "You're a marshmallow, Veronica Mars. A Twinkie." but at the end of the episode when she's doing the voice over about getting her family back together she says :
"I'm sorry, is that mushy? Well, you know what they say: Veronica Mars, she's a marshmallow." That's way the marshmallow is so much more memorable than the twinkie.

Mariana said...

OMG! This all is SO amazing, You guys are doing a great job!!

And I def. suport the marshmallow idea!!

Rachel said...

Love the Marshmallow idea. The Snickers can be linked by "Snicker" doodles.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for all of your support! We love The Indian Food Store!

I agree; once we get through the available chocolate, please switch to marshmallows! Could we really get an 18-wheeler???

Anonymous said...

I think marshmallows are a terrific idea! 'Cause you know what they say... Veronica Mars? She's a marshmallow.

Anonymous said...

I'm all for s'more Veronica! Let's go with the marshmallows once we've exhausted the supply of Mars Bars

Tamsyn said...

will be adding money to this over the weekend, but also posted my own mars bar and letter this morning to Dawn (I live in the UK)

Gil said...

I love that idea, anonymous! We should put that on the marshmallow pallet: "We want s'more Veronica Mars"
