World Cookie Day 2023: Celebrate the day by eating your favourite chocolate chip cookies

World Cookie Day is celebrated annually on August 4, and this year, the world is celebrating it with a delightful indulgence in cookies! One bite into a Chocolate Chip Cookie can transport everyone back to the nostalgic days of one’s childhood, where time seemed endless, and cold milk accompanied these treats. Everybody savours Chocolate Chip Cookies in various forms, whether warm and gooey straight from the oven or fresh and chewy from the store. Regardless of the version one prefers, this triple-C confection holds a special place in everybody’s hearts.

Interestingly, the first Chocolate Chip Cookie was born accidentally at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. In 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield intended to make regular chocolate cookies but serendipitously added chunks of a chocolate bar into the dough. To her surprise, the chocolate didn’t mix uniformly, resulting in delectable pockets of chocolate goodness within the cookie.

This fortunate mishap gave rise to the beloved Chocolate Chip Cookie and the establishment of the Toll House company. As time passed, new versions of the cookie emerged, using white or dark chocolate, catering to people’s desire for diverse recipes to enjoy.

Ruth Graves’ Chocolate Chip Cookie gained widespread popularity and caught the attention of Nestle. They approached her and offered to feature her recipe on their wrapper in exchange for a lifetime supply of cookies – an offer she gladly accepted. Today, the Chocolate Chip Cookie is a quintessential part of American households, with an estimated average consumption of around 35,000 cookies per person in a lifetime – a staggering number indeed.

The fame of this delightful treat has transcended borders, reaching places like Europe and Australia, and its popularity continues to grow. Who knows, perhaps it will become so renowned that aliens might be enticed to visit Earth, lured by the aroma of these delicious cookies.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh asked Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar to put an immediate ban on Halal certificates on Food products in Bihar and gave the example of the Uttar Pradesh government. He raised concerns about an alleged link between Halal certification and potential involvement in socially discriminatory and terrorist activities.

The Union minister said there is no connection to Islamic standards and it is an attempt to Islamize products which are not related to the religion. He said institutions were becoming self proclaimed authorities in issuing Halal certificates. He accused institutions of receiving large payments from companies manufacturing the food products.

Singh said there is a large conspiracy between Halal certification and business is not unfounded. He cited the example of the Uttar Pradesh government and urged the Bihar CM to take similar measures in the state. The Uttar Pradesh government had imposed a ban on distribution and sale of certain Halal certified products which included medicines, garments and dairy.

According to a state government notification edible oil, sugar and bakery products which are labeled as Halal certified by companies which are producing them would be banned from sale and distribution. The notification said Halal certification of food products is a parallel system which creates confusion about the quality of food items.

The notification added The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is the country’s apex body which is in charge of determining standards for most food products which are sold in the country and is responsible for determining the standards food products are supposed to meet.

Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman supported the move by the Uttar Pradesh government saying food certification should be done by government agencies and not by non-governmental organizations. She said food testing and food quality are essentially a government job.
