Homebeccer, whose real name is Becca, told BuzzFeed News that the friends lost it when they were told of the package’s location.
“I, foolishly, was not fully aware of just how far Guam was from us, probably equating it to Puerto Rico as both are US territories,” she said. “But no, Guam is actually just north of Australia. It is, to say the least, very far from New Jersey.”
Becca said that the group are “baffled” by the reaction to their story, considering it’s a tale of mishandled post.
“I was telling a friend back home in Florida about the cookie debacle and her little brother yelled, ‘Wait, that was you? I saw that post on Tumblr,'” she said. “But it’s been hilarious, at the same time, that ‘Guam cookies’ is now forever going to be a thing in our lives.”
BuzzFeed News has reached out to USPS to find out what on Earth happened to the cookies.
