National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Date When Celebrated : This tasty holiday is always held on August 4
National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is today. It may be blisteringly hot outdoors. But, put on your apron and fire up the oven, for this is a day to bake dozens and dozens of chocolate chip cookies. And, then eat them, of course!
It's real easy to celebrate this sweet day. Eat lots and lots of Chocolate chip cookies. Store bought or homemade chocolate chip cookies are all okay. If you are a baker, celebrate this day, by pulling out your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes (yes, I said "recipes"), and bake as many cookies as you can. If this day falls on a workday, it is perfectly fine to bake the cookies the night before, as long as you bring some in to work for your fellow workers.
To celebrate this day, bakeries and grocery stores often offer a free chocolate chip cookie to patrons. Some offer discounts on purchase of the cookies.
Did You Know? Americans eat on average 18,928 cookies (all kinds) in their lifetimes.
The chocolate chip cookie was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield from Massachusetts, in 1938. Her husband ran the Tool House Inn, resulting in her cookies being call "Toll House "cookies. Nestlé's bought the rights to the name, and the rest is history!
Origin of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day:
Our research easily found Ruth Graves Wakefield, the creator of the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. But, we did not find the creator of this special day....yet.
Today is referred to as a "National" day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. It seems that many of the food and candy related days have tagged on the word "national". This day deserves the National" designation, as chocolate chip cookies are America's favorite cookie.
