Weapons grade thin mints

| 8 Comments

ThinMintsBox.jpgOur annual supply of Girl Scout cookies arrived yesterday. We order them from one of Tod's colleague's daughters in Chicago and she mails them to us.

This year, the package arrived sealed with Japan Post tape and with a note saying the box had been inspected at Customs. Both boxes of Thin Mints were open.

I wonder if the densely packed cylinders of Thin Mints--18 cookies per roll, two rolls to a box--trigger some sort of weapons alert? Maybe it looks like a pipe bomb.

can't trust them girl scouts....

Truly a testa-mint to the defication of the Japanese inspectors -- have you ever heard of someone opening a box of girl scout cookies and not wolfing down a couple?
Maybe they were out of milk at Narita...

I don't know if I'd want to eat them after they've been manhandled like that.

What am I saying? They're Thin Mints! I'd eat them if rats nibbled on the wrappers. Enjoy your "safety checked" treats.

P.S. I like the pink.

what sort of beverage bottles are in your new header? I like it.

Maybe they were checking for drugs.

Nah, too obvious! More likely, they just cant resist Girl Scout cookies any more than anyone else can! (And i say this as a new convert...i tried them for the first time this year and they were amazing, both the Mint thins and the caramel ring things, cant remember the name, but yummmm!)

Samoas!

Yummy fattening caloric Samoas!

They were carmel-chocolate-coconutty cookies, right?

If yes, they're Samoas!

(repeat from beginning of post while doing a silly dance)

yes, check for drugs... over here we have x the size of thin mints ;-)
