Happy National Chocolate Chip Day! Ruth Graves Wakefield created the original chocolate chip cookie at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Mass., in the 1930's. Chocolate chips are the star ingredient in the perfect food: the chocolate chip cookie. Chowing down all day on chocolate chip cookies or any kind of sweets is not a good idea; sugars break down tooth enamel and cause tooth decay. But as an every-so-often treat? Go for it ... Chip, Chip - Hooray!!
