History and Origin of National Chocolate Chip Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day.
This is referred to as a “National” day. However, 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” onto the title. We suspect amid a sugar high, the creators got a little excited, and a wee bit carried away.
