May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day !

Posted on May 15, 2017

High-res version

Here are today’s five food finds about Chocolate Chips:

 

  • Originally, chocolate chips were made of semi-sweet chocolate, but today there are many flavors. These include bittersweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, mint chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and white and dark swirled chocolate chips.

  • Chocolate chips were invented in 1933 when Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts added cut-up chunks of a semi-sweet Nestlé chocolate bar to a cookie recipe.

 

chocolate_chip_cookies_-_kimberlykv

 

  • The cookies were a huge success, and Wakefield reached an agreement with Nestlé to add her recipe to the chocolate bar’s packaging in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate.
  • Initially, Nestlé included a small chopping tool with the chocolate bars, but in 1939 they started selling the chocolate in chip (or “morsel”) form.

  • The Nestlé brand Toll House cookies is named for the inn.

  • 1940 Nylon stockings went on sale for the first time in the U.S. in Wilmington, Delaware.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Chinese Almond Cookies

  1. In Mandarin Chinese, these are more literally called “Almond Cakes.”
  2. The Chinese Almond Cookie is native to southern and southeast China.
  3. There is no record of these cookies before the 1900’s.
  4. The Chinese commonly prepared Almond milk and Almond tea.
  5. An American variation exists using pecans.

Fun Fact:

Typical to southern and southeastern China, these almond cookies are usually enjoyed around Chinese New Year, and are given as gifts to family and friends.

In some Chinese restaurants, they are served to cleanse the palate after several courses, rather than being regarded as a dessert.

Yuan-Shan Chi declared these cookies “as Chinese as blueberry pie.”
