gourmet cookiesIf you’re reading this blog, I’d guess there’s not much you don’t know about cookies. I mean, you’re not just here for the brownie gifts are you? Considering our six flavors of gourmet cookies, I’d certainly hope not!

Well, if you’re in the mood for some fun facts about one of our favorite food gifts, you’re in luck. The folks over at Epicurious recently uncovered five little-known facts about chocolate chip cookies on a tour of the headquarters of Nestlé's Toll House Cookies in Solon, Ohio.

You can read her full article of five fun facts here, or get three of our favorite highlights below.

  1. Ruth Wakefield of Whitman, Mass., baked the first chocolate chip cookie ever in the 1930s when she added pieces of a chocolate bar into her cookie batter. 
  2. Size didn’t matter with the world’s first chocolate chip cookie. It was roughly the size of a quarter. Fortunately, the standard size of chocolate chip cookies has increased a bit over the years.
  3. The chocolate chip cookie is America's most popular cookie with 53 percent of Americans naming it the top gun. The peanut butter cookie (16 percent) and oatmeal cookie (15 percent) are second and third.

I don’t know about you, but math makes me hungry. Time for gourmet cookies from Fairytale Brownies.
