It’s that time of year again- the time when we have way, way too many Girl Scout cookies around. Sure, it’s fun at first. But a couple of pants sizes later, you may be looking for some ways to use up these delicious little guys. I’ve got you covered- here are the top alternative uses for Girl Scout cookies.

  • A hoop skirt for your hamster
  • A bracelet for the extremely small (humans and/ or animals)
  • Hoop earrings
  • A Frisbee for your hamster
  • A Hula Hoop for your hamster
  • Just give it to your hamster and let him decide what to do with it

Thin mints

  • Set a record for world’s smallest hockey puck
  • Make a thin mint cobblestone walkway up to your house
  • Hoop-like earrings
  • Replace black Checkers pieces you lost long ago
  • Use them as skipping “stones”


  • Mosaic them with your thin mints to create a classic diner-style kitchen tile floor
  • Grind them up, use them to caulk holes in your wall, get your full rental deposit back when you move out of your place!
  • Use them as white Checkers to replace the thin mints that were replacing your black Checkers

Those shortbread ones

  • Throw them in the trash

Happy Girl Scout cookie season!

    Egad! There is only one good use for Girl Scout cookies, you eat ‘em! In moderation of course. Not half a box like I did just last week with the peanut butter ones. Remember, these cookies don’t come around often. You store them. Save them for a rainy day. Girl Scout cookies are sacred!
