• National Chocolate Chip Day is Wednesday


    Wednesday, May 15, is National Chocolate Chip Day.

    We have Ruth Graves Wakefield of Massachusetts to thank for the tiny bit of heaven that is the chocolate chip.

    Back in 1937, she broke up chunks of a semi-sweet chocolate bar to include in a cookie recipe.

    Her creation caught on, obviously.


    By 1941, Nestle was producing pre-made chips with no chopping required.

    Since then, we have learned that chocolate chips go in all kinds of food.

    So celebrate by finding something with chocolate chips and eating it Wednesday.

    Use #ChocolateChipDay to post and connect with other chocolate chip lovers on social media.
