America's Love Affair With The Chocolate Chip Cookie

America has had a love affair with cookies in one form or another since its founding. In fact, the chocolate chip cookie would be right up there with apple pie and hot dogs as a contender for Official Food of the United States, if there were such a thing. Here's a little more about the cookie in America and chocolate chip cookies in particular.Pilgrim housewives began baking as soon as they were settled here in the 1600's. Although they baked cookies, they were not known as such until the arrival of the Dutch immigrants who baked a delicacy called the "koekje." Like many foreign words, the spelling of koekje was soon anglicized to its current form: cookie!The most popular early cookies were macaroons and gingerbread cookies.

Women would begin with creaming butter and sugar together, then adding flour. This basic formula could be transfor...

 


Sun Safe Candy for Long Days at the Beach

One of the best ways to spend a summer day is camped out at the beach. You can make the day even more special by packing some games, a good book, lunch, plenty of cold water and some sun safe treats.There's nothing worse than coming in from a dip in the ocean - anticipating a cool drink and sweet sugary snack to rejuvenate you - only to find your treat has melted under the summer sun. When you think candy, many people think of chocolate. But chocolate is not a smart choice on a hot summer day. Ideally, chocolate should be stored at around 63 degrees, with less than 50 percent humidity - conditions you certainly won't find at the beach. That's why you need sun safe candy - candy that will hold up during a long day at the shore.You may think the label "sun safe" limits your choices of treats, but that's not true. There are entire lines of sun safe candies, including Australian red licorice, double bubble gumballs, Mega Candy Buttons, Jelly Belly jelly beans, rock candy in four flavors - and the ever popular Jol...

 


The History of Candy Bars

Candy bars have been around for hundreds of years. Yes, hundreds. One of the first candy bars ever created was made in 1847. Joseph Fry figured out a way to mix cocoa powder, sugar, and cocoa so it could be made into a paste and placed in molds. It was a success. People enjoyed eating the chocolate as much as they did drinking it. However, this chocolate bar and the candy bars we are familiar with are completely different.It was not until 1876 that milk chocolate was invented by Daniel Peter from Switzerland. It took him eight years to do this. It only took three more years for Daniel Peter to join with Henri Nestle to form the Nestle Company. This company introduced the famous Nestle Crunch candy bars in 1938.We are getting ahead of ourselves. Let's go back to 1900. Milton S. Hershey decided it was time to let everyone taste the wonders of milk chocolate. Up until then it was only the wealthy who could really afford this wondrous confection. Locating his candy factory in dairy country, now known a...
