NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DAY

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is observed annually on August 4. This is a day to enjoy those tasty bits of chocolate in your favorite cookies.

For the same reason, we thank Ruth Graves Wakefield for chocolate chips, we also celebrate her name on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. For if it weren't for her curiosity and invention, we wouldn't hover around ovens savoring the moment the timer dings. If she had never wondered what chunks of chocolate would taste like mixed into a sugar cookie dough, we would know the ecstasy that is a warm chocolate chip cookie melting on our tongue, our eyes closing in heavenly satisfaction and perfect smiles crowning our faces. No, if it weren't for Ruth Graves Wakefield, entire generations would have been denied the bliss that is a chocolate chip cookie. We could even go so far as to say she is responsible for all those other nuggets of goodness. Those morsels of butterscotch, peanut butter and white chocolate we get to enjoy in much the same way we enjoy our chocolate delights. Nothing, though, rates quite as high as the chocolate chip cookie that Ruth Grave Wakefield brought to us in 1937. No, nothing.
