Top 10 Nerdy, Weird, Amazing and Unusual Cookie Jars



Here in the UK we call Cookie Jars ‘biscuit barrels’ (although we do indeed often put cookies inside of them) but it doesn’t matter what you call it, it is the quality of the items inside of the jars that count. Or is it?!? Come with me as I try to find out if me being a nerd can, in fact, mean that the jar is better than the goodies inside of it, as I bring you…

C is for cookie, that is good enough for me! But you don’t want them to go bad and soggy so put them in this air tight Officially licensed Cookie Monster jar! CCCOOOOKKKIE!!

Do you think that if zombies had enough presence of mind to cook, that they would bake things out of our brains? Brain cupcakes, brain & bacon sandwiches?!? Or maybe some brain cookies and then they could keep them inside this Zombie inspired Cookie jar.

While I did already feature this one in my post “Top 10 Portal: Companion Cube Gifts” it is just far too cool for me not to include it in this one as well. Awesome doesn’t even start to describe it.

At just under 1ft tall this cookie jar is pretty heavy, but it makes up for that in the sheer levels of ‘EPIC’ that offers a nerd like me, and I’m sure you will agree that is it amazing to look at and not that expensive given its size.

You know that a top 10 is full of great things when this only makes it number 6! But I have to admit I absolutely love this Alien egg styled cookie jar but it is quite expensive and heavy, because of those 2 things I have put here at number 6 instead of higher.

Incredible Hulk Cookie Jar

This jar speaks for itself “The Hulk” what more do I need to say for any Marvel Comics fan! It’s vintage, officially licensed and even has that look of a “hulk” Biscuit Barrel as if David Banner has made it himself!

Have you ever been drinking your tea or coffee and suddenly thought you would like a cookie to go with it? Well, the truth is, those cravings are totally logical. Our bodies are programmed to want sugar, fat, and salt. These desires live deep in our caveman’s brains!

Another one that I have already posted before in my post “Top 10 Death Star – Star Wars Gift Ideas” but it is well worth including in this list for the sheer look of it, let alone that it is not the expensive, After all even Imperial Stormtroopers like their cookies fresh!

Star Wars R2D2 Cookie Jar

There’s one thing I can definitely say about R2-D2 is that he is fiercely loyal, and will always do what’s needed to protect your biscuits. But what I really liked about this one is that he was already kind of biscuit barrel shaped any way so it was always going to work!

TARDIS Cookie Jar

I didn’t put this as number 1 for nothing, sure it doesn’t cost the earth, sure you all know I am a Doctor Who loving Nerd and sure it even looks EPIC! But the sole, single reason I made this number 1 was that I just hoped that it was so much bigger on the inside than it looked on the outside. (but I get the feeling disappointment is heading my way fast)

  4. I am thinking about getting the ceramic doctor who cookie jar but I would really like to know how deep it is. Our local store just started carrying Jammy Dodgers and I read a review by another person saying its only good for mini oreos and not normal sized cookies? How true is that in your opinion?

  5. Hi Russell, you should do this 4 things, in on new post on your blog:
    1 Copy and past the Award ;
    2. Say thanks to whom give you the prize and put a link of her/his blog
    3 Tell 7 things about you
    4 Give to other 15 blog the nominee for the award and after that advise them with a post on their blog
    I hope it’s clear 🙂

  6. Who wouldn’t want to dive into the hulk for a cookie?! I also love the portal one as it would be quite subtle- only portal players would recognise it! I love the cookie monster but perhaps a little mainstream?

  7. My credit card just exhaled a massive sigh of relief from the wallet, it is safe & won’t feel used tonight. Totally nearly accidently bought the Cookie Monster cookie jar, but it’s sold out!

  8. there is another TARDIS cookie jar on think geek that makes TARDIS noises when you open it. it’s plastic so it doesn’t look as nice as the ceramic one you posted, but it gets bonus points for the sound ; )

  9. Well I never grew up with it, and never really ever watched an episode until recently. Will be blogging through it soon. We’ll see how it goes. 😀

  10. The companion cube is just too darling.
    The Tardis is great. I love cookies, this is an understatement. Maybe it would help me in my recent quest for Dr. who appreciation.

  11. Oh us nerds,the weird things we inspire.But,well done to you for list.It was amazing.But still CHOC CHIP COOKIES.Oh so I love them.Anyway,keep up the good work.

  12. Glad it helped, it must take a lot of work to keep tabs on all your lists. That BBC shop link is a bonus as the price was much better than the Etsy link and lower delivery too! Just having a short break myself, before finishing how-to article for my blog regarding editing old photos. Almost bit off more than I could chew with that one. Will keep it simpler in future, but promised to finish it so I will.

  13. Great list of cookie jars, from 10 to 1, all pretty cool. Your titles and comments for each were also on good form. I’m a regular here now! 🙂 A little query though, re:TARDIS cookie jar. The link you give to Gift & Gadget – TARDIS jar there looks plastic, not the ceramic one in the photo here. Your previous post on Teapots had link to an Etsy seller for the Tardis teapot and they had the TARDIS cookie jar too. I remembered as I passed the link on to a friend and I want the TARDIS jar too! 🙂 Also want to know more about sistasertraline’s backstage pass!
