Just doing some math waiting for my Bundles of Clones and dreaming of a pallet from Woot!
Had an empty case from Girl Scout Thin mints on my desk from when my girl was selling them.
There are 12 boxes of Thin Mints in a case.
There are 200 cases to a pallet of cookies.
That means 2400 boxes of cookies at a cost of $8400 for the whole pallet.
Elizabeth Brinton, sometimes referred to as the "Cookie Queen," holds the record for selling the most Girl Scout cookies in a year by selling 18,000 boxes.
So for $8400 you could buy a pallet of Thin Mints. How long would it take you to eat them all?
That's 67,200 cookies (28 in a box, 2 sleeves of 14).
If you ate 6 cookies per day it would take you 30.7 years to eat them all.
If you ate a whole sleeve of 14 (not unheard of) it would take you just over 13 years.
If you wanted to eat them all in 1 year (because that same girl scout is going to ask you to order another pallet next year) you would need to eat 6 1/2 boxes a DAY (184 cookies a day)!!! That would cost you $23 per day (or $700 month, a really nice care payment).
If you woke up in the morning you would need to eat 11.5 cookies per hour, every hour, until you went to bed to eat that many. I can't even image how much milk you would need.
That is the definition of a crap ton (of cookies).
