Celebrated on December 22nd
The world's largest chocolate chip cookie was HUGE It was weighed in at more than 40,000 pounds! The heavy cookie was 102-feet-wide. It was made and baked by the Immaculate Baking Company in Flat Rock, North Carolina in 2003. The previous record was 80-feet-wide. That is a lot bigger than a quarter! The company built a special oven to make the larger than life cookie.
Cookie Monster debuted his song “A Cookie is a Sometimes Food,” which teaches the merits of moderation in eating habits. Oddly enough, the big blue beast rarely feasts on actual cookies—the oil and chocolate would stain the Muppet costume—but on rice crackers painted to look the part.
Elizabeth Brinton, often called the "Cookie Queen," holds the record for selling the most Cookies during her days as a Scout. During her monarchy, she sold more than 100,000 boxes, with clients that included Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Sandra Day O'Connor.
