23 Reasons Why You Need To Eat A Chocolate Chip Cookie Today!

| Right | May 15, 2020

Today is national chocolate chip day! Honestly, we’re not making these up ask the cookie monster!

It all started in the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts. Around 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield was planning to make a chocolate cookie and thought she could achieve this by chucking in chunks of a chocolate bar. Happily for history, the chocolate did not melt and mix with the cookie mix, but stubbornly held together, clumping together in little bits. Today we call these bits chocolate chips!

Because it’s the day to celebrate all things chocolate chip, we’ve munched our way through the archives to find 23 delicious stories to nibble on to last the day. Whether it’s a badly-behaved customer demanding free cookies or some passive-aggressive monster that threw a single raisin into the chocolate cookie mix, we hope you enjoy!
