Hi, I’m Elise. If you read TN, I feel like you know a lot of my opinions. I like to think I’m a reasonable person, who will listen to valid criticism and other people’s points of views.
However, I will not be moved on the fact that Thin Mints do not, and never will, belong in the freezer. Welcome, everyone, to the hill I will die on.
Apparently, the world does not agree with me on the fact that Thin Mints should not be frozen. According to my Twitter poll, at least.
BUT THE TWITTER IS WRONG. AS IS EVERYONE AT MY WORK. I FEEL VERY STRONGLY ABOUT THIS, IF YOU CAN’T TELL. HERE ARE MY REASONS.
Freezing Thin Mints does nothing for them. It does not make them better. In fact, I think it makes them worse. You can’t even taste the flavor at that point, because they are too cold to enjoy. Why are you eating a lesser form of a great cookie when you could just be eating a great cookie?? There is scientific research that proves that the perception of sweetness is intensified as temperature goes up. That’s right – by freezing the Thin Mints, you are MISSING OUT on the key purpose of eating cookies – to get delicious sweet flavor!
Thin Mints do not say anywhere on their box or nutritional information that they are meant to be served frozen. I literally have a box next to me as I am writing this. Nowhere on said box does it say that they are “best served frozen” or that any of the ingredients need to be frozen for taste or freshness. So don’t give me that “they were meant to be frozen” line, BECAUSE THE MANUFACTURERS DID NOT INTEND THEM TO BE FROZEN.
Frankly, if you wanted frozen Thin Mints, then why are you buying a regular box of Thin Mints anyway?!?!? THEY MAKE THIN MINT ICE CREAM, FOR GOD’S SAKE. If you’re so invested in having freaking frozen cookies in your face, at least add delicious ice cream to mask your stupid decisions.
Thin Mints are the only Girl Scout cookies that people insist on putting in the freezer. WHY??! WHAT MYTHOLOGICAL POWER DO THIN MINTS HOLD THAT THEY HAVE CONVINCED PEOPLE THEY NEED TO BE FROZEN??
In conclusion, this is my hill. Thin Mints don’t go in the freezer. Don’t put them in the freezer. Enjoy your room temperature cookies, the way they were meant to be eaten.
What hill will you die on?
