We don’t know who first started turning foods into holidays, but we’re sure glad they did. Since many of us are usually dieting, or trying to eat better, it’s nice to have excuses to come back to some of our favorites. From ice cream and burgers, to French fries and even filet mignon, there’s a day for anything you could be craving. But tomorrow is a very special day, folks. Tomorrow is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, and that means free cookies and discounts on some of your favorite brands slinging gooey chocolate-studded snacks.
But wait, wasn’t that in May? There seems to be some confusion about the day celebrating all things gooey chocolate chip. But we don’t suggest you worry too much about it since it means you get the chance for free cookies twice. PSA: Before we embark on a day of warm cookie goodness, remember that it’s perfectly fine to eat cookies for breakfast, especially when they’re free cookies.
