“Ate a box of Thin Mints. Didn’t get thinner. I don’t think they work”

"Ate a box of Thin Mints. Didn’t get thinner. I don’t think they work” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The popular “Thin Mints” Girl Scout Cookies aren’t diet products, of course, but there are jokes.

“@tootlelOops idk why the have to call them thin mints...I’ve eaten boxes and boxes & didn’t get any thinner...in fact quite the opposite! smile” was posted on Twitter by Jamie Thompson on January 24, 2012. “I ate thin mints allllll day but I didn’t get any thinner. Hahahahahahaha. #dadjoke” was posted on Twitter by Macey on February 26, 2012.

“I ate a box of thin mints, didn’t get thinner. I don’t think they work” was posted on Twitter by bri 🧀 on March 13, 2017. This wording probably was popularized by an image.
