Watch Pro Eater Matt Stonie Conquer 13 Pounds Of Milk And Cookies

If you’re familiar with competitive eating, then Matt Stonie is a household name. This year, he’s been on a roll, taking down some impressive challenges — eating more than 9,000 calories when he replicated Big Smoke’s order from the Grand Theft Auto video game. He also ate five Chipotle burritos in less than five minutes.

This week, Stonie went the classic route with some milk and cookies. However, this challenge was no ordinary after school special. It required one gallon of milk and 203 Chips Ahoy Cookies to reach a grand total of 12,800 calories.

Combined, Stonie estimated this dough and dairy pairing was, “roughly 13-pounds of cookies and milk,” according to the video’s description on YouTube. In less than 30 minutes, Stonie had devoured everything but crumbs, and finished about 1.5 gallons of milk.

While it’s been rumored that the human body is unable to consume a gallon of milk in one hour, Stonie makes light work of these two half gallons, seemingly without any discomfort. Although, during this challenge, he did say that his gums were getting raw because of the crunchiness of the cookies.

Maybe next time he’ll dunk the cookies in milk like a normal person.

3 Ridiculously Cute Things To Do With Mini Cookies

Fueling off the excitement of a fresh a shipment of Annie’s new Cookie Bites to our office, our newsroom was immediately toying with ideas of cute things to do with so many miniature cookies on our desks.

The Cookie Bites ended up playing really well for some ideas we’d been batting around, with my favorite of the bunch being simply tearing open a bag, pouring milk inside and eating with a spoon. The way the bag opens up and has a flat bottom works ideally as a portable bowl.

Check out the video and photos below and for some delicious miniature cookie ideas you can run with:

How To Eat Milk & Cookies Like a Boss [WATCH]

Milk & cookies . . . how do you eat them?

If you grew up in my household, you likely had your fair share of cookies out of a package, because let’s face it, your mom wasn’t Paula Deen, she was a sweet Lebanese lady who bought enough packages of Chips Ahoy and Oreos to fill the minivan (oh, your mom wasn’t Lebanese?).

Regardless, the years of pulling cookies out of plastic packages and dunking them into a variety of ill-fitting glasses led to a revolutionary finding. While I was pouring milk into a nearby cup during a Saturday morning marathon of Boy Meets World, some of my milk splashed into the cookie tray. My irritation quickly grew to euphoria, as I came to the realization . . . the tray was the milk cup.

All the years of wasting glasses for milk and the solution was sitting in the very same package I was eating out of:

Most cookie packages come segmented into catch-all compartments that just happen to make the perfect container for your milk.

Gone are the days of dirtying piles of cups, crying over spilled milk, and failed attempts to fit your cookie into an uncooperative glass. And before people start throwing a fit and saying, “Well, now I’ve dirtied my cookie container,” I have one of two solutions for you:

  • Finish your damn cookies, there’s only an average of 24 per package. No big.
  • You can use any pair of mediocrely-crafted scissors to cut the compartment you filled with milk away from the others

Looks like cookie companies had functionality in mind after all:

Thanks cookies . . . thanks for nothing, mom.
