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…

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.

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!

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!

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)
