There are certain things in the food world that are not debatable. The classic pizza is cheese, sauce, and pepperoni (that’s it), the classic ice cream flavorsare vanilla or chocolate (not both), and the classic cookie is the timeless chocolate chip (no walnuts needed). It’s gooey, chewy (it’d better be chewy), and chocked full of melting chocolate chips. So perfect it deserves its own holiday. That’s why today, August 4th, we celebrate this perfection in dessert form as National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. Some restaurants and stores are even offering free cookies today so it’s okay to take a day off from your diet.
We won’t tell, we promise. It’s hard to talk with a mouth full of cookies anyway.
