    Hehe my husband has been known to sit and drink half a gallon of milk and a whole package of Chips Ahoy.

    OH MY GOSH. Glad that you realized it BEFORE THEY got tossed. LOL

    I can not remember the last time I ate a cookie. My Doctor fusses all the time for me to leave off the high starch foods and sugars. I know now why I have a headache all the time, My Halo fits too tight!!!

    Good thinking Batman! I love ways of re-using packaging!

    Sadly we don't get those here in the U.K. BUT I will be choosing our biscuits now depending on whether the packaging is suitable or not! :lol: :roll: :D

    Hm, I don't eat those, in fact I don,t think they are here, but you have given me an idea - perhaps After Eight mint boxes would do the same job.
