    Not another National Day! I missed this one. I usually run into them on different sites. But my favorite chocolate chips cookies are at Trader Joes. They are vegan and soft. they also have other vegan flavors.

    Yes, I live in the USA, but I didn’t know that it was national chocolate chip cookie day, or that there even was such a thing. A bit of trivia for you, though. Do you know which nation eats the most chocolate per person? The answer surprised me, though it really shouldn’t have; Switzerland, home of Swiss Chocolate.

      I figured it would either be the USA or some obscure country that most people have never heard of. It does make sense, though, since Swiss chocolate is known world-wide. Hmmm…I wonder if I could get a job as a chocolate taster? Interesting thought. 😀

    I live in the USA and did not know about this national day.
    My boyfriend did eat Chocolate chips yesterday. I rarely eat chocolate for health reasons. I do love chocolate.

      Some are not bothered by certain chocolate-and there are health benefits to eating chocolate. However, we can get through life without most of what is available to us, can’t we?

    Who could resist Chocolate Chip cookies? I won’t let a day go without it, it’s always on my grocery list. If you want to put a smile on a little girl’s face give her a chocolate chip cookie and it surely make her day.
