National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Hip hip hooray! It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! We aren’t sure where we would be without this classic cookie, but we are here to celebrate! It continues to be our most popular flavor and we can understand why. There is something so nostalgic about this cookie. Whether it reminds you of making your first batch as a kid, or perhaps picking up a warm cookie from our downtown bakery, you really can never go wrong with Chocolate Chip.
The History of the Chocolate Chip Cookie
The Chocolate Chip cookie was invented in the 1930’s by a woman named Ruth Wakefield. While on vacation, Ruth was brainstorming a cookie idea that involved adding chocolate squares into a “blond batter.” She broke up a chocolate bar into small pieces and to her surprise, the chocolate did not melt into the dough! It makes us wonder if the creation of the Chocolate Chip cookie was accidental, but regardless, we can’t thank Ruth enough!
