Americans remember every August 4 the origin of this sweet mix that was created in this country in 1937.

In the United States they celebrate every August 4 one of the desserts that Americans like the most, and that was created in that country: the cookie with chocolate chips.

And it is that on that day, but in the year 1937, the American pastry chef Ruth Graves Wakefield accidentally created this recipe.

During the preparation of a chocolate cookie recipe, he runs out of confectionery chocolate, and uses semi-sweet chocolate bars instead.

But this chocolate did not melt with the dough, as confectionery does, and it turned out these delicious cookies that Americans love so much.

Soon, confectionery industries in that country and the world copied this unusual and delicious recipe that became very popular.

The famous Chips Ahoy arrive in Venezuela, from the American transnational Nabisco, a brand that led this cookie for years until the release of others such as those produced by Polar with its star product Toddy.
