National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day 2022: Where to Get Free Cookies
Thursday is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day – however, when don’t we want to celebrate these chewy, chewy, chocolatey treats?
The chocolate chip cookie is a relatively recent invention: In 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield tossed a broken Nestlé semi-sweet chocolate bar into her cookie dough at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. Whether Wakefield thought the chunks would melt into a dark chocolate cookie or remain “chips” has been hotly disputed, but there’s no denying the results caused a stir.
The following year, Nestlé asked him to put his recipe on his packaging. She agreed and sold the rights for $1 – and a lifetime supply of Nestlé chocolate.
Below, find out how to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day with free cookies, discounts and more.
