Who Doesn't Love Cookies?

By December 30, 2012

Follow me on:

plate of cookiesDo you know what was the first cookie to be mass-produced in the United States, the country that eats the most cookies (more than 2 billion per year)  in the entire world? It was the Animal Cracker, first sold in 1902 as an edible ornament for your Christmas tree.

And now the big and small about cookies. The Immaculate Baking company set the current world record for the world's largest cookie with a 101 foot diameter chocolate chip cookie that weighed 40,000 lbs. There is no record set for the world's smallest cookie, so start baking your nano-sized crumb.

According to the Washington Post, "Girl Scout cookie names follow a long tradition of having no resemblance whatsoever to the cookie they are supposed to describe. The best don't sound like cookies at all." But a cookie by any name still tastes as sweet. Girl Scout cookie time is an annual drive to sell cookies as a fund raiser for the Girl Scouts,  a tradition that goes back nearly one hundred years. Photo Credits: Morguefile, Getty Images
