What Is National Cookie Day?
Cookies have been enjoyed for centuries, but National Cookie Day didn’t come around until a bit later: 1976. It was actually first featured on Sesame Street’s calendar.
Then, in 1987, Matt Nader, a founder of the Blue Chip Cookie Company, officially declared December 4th to be National Cookie Day.
Today, National Cookie Day remains a popular celebration of everyone’s favorite baked good.

The key to enjoying cookies more regularly is to simply opt for wholesome, guilt-free cookies that you can always feel good about eating. Instead of refined sugars, these cookies use natural ingredients and, most importantly, natural sugars. That’s why all of our cookies are sweetened with simple, natural alternatives like coconut sugars and dates.
