National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day 2022: Where To Get The Best Food Freebies And Deals

Tomorrow is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! Not to be confused with National Chocolate Chip Day, which happens in May. National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day lands on August 4th, 2022 (per National Today.)

It might surprise you to learn that the chocolate chip cookie was first created by accident. Back in 1930, Ruth Wakefield opened a restaurant opposite a toll gate and decided to call the eatery "Toll House." Later she would toss some broken chocolate into a batch of cookie dough thinking it would mix in with the batter. However, it did not melt and mix as she thought it would and that's how the chocolate chip cookie came to be. And yes, that's how Nestle's Toll House cookies got their name. Today the delicious treat is enjoyed all over the world and what better way to celebrate than National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day?

You can always impress your friends and family and make some chocolate chip cookies from scratch or you can check out these offers from some of your favorite bakeries.
