Back in early December, Kara was working on A+ content for our Amazon shop. She was in the throes of getting info together for our new Vintage Cookie Jar, and she asked me a question:
"How many containers of Oreo cookies do you think fit in that thing?"
I wasn't sure the answer. We did a photoshoot back in August where we measured the capacity of our first cookie jar in this same method, and it fit 3 packs of standard Oreos, without any issue. I suspected the Vintage Cookie Jar was a bit larger, but there was only one way to know for certain. I offered to make a quick trip to our nearby CVS store to grab a few packages so we could test.
3 family-sized packs of Oreos later, we determined that the capacity is just a bit larger on the Vintage Cookie Jar as compared to its predecessor.
What we didn't yet know was how long those cookies would keep their freshness inside that cookie jar. While the seal on the container is a strong one, air does enter the container each time we open it. And we do that every day.
So here we are, a little over a month later. I am happy to report that the cookie jar is still well-over half full (there are only 3 of us in the office) AND that they are all still as crunchy and fresh as the day we put them in the jar.
So, if you are looking for a great-looking cookie jar that will keep your cookies as fresh as the day you make or buy them, please consider this one. We are pretty proud of it.
