The Cookie Monster is pouring his glass of milk and licking his muppet lips in anticipation of one of the crunchiest, gooeyist, delicious food holidays of the year — National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most popular cookie choices, and the LloydPans innovation team took a dive into where you can get your cookie fix to celebrate. According to NationalToday.com, a food holiday source, the first chocolate chip cookie was made purely by accident in a Massachusetts inn aptly named the Toll House. In 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield wanted to make chocolate cookies, but she threw in chunks of a chocolate bar to see how it would mix. The chocolate didn’t blend well with the cookie, but instead became chunky within the cookie, leading to the famous Toll House company.
It is said that the average person eats around 35,000 cookies in a lifetime, so let’s add to that number today with some awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie Day deals. (Note: please contact businesses ahead of time due to possible COVID restrictions.)
There are approximately 140 locations built from Wakefield’s recipe, and customers can visit a location for a free chocolate chip cookie today, while supplies last. Limit one per customer.
