Interesting Cookie FAQs
Chocolate chip cookies are the most popular cookie flavor in the U.S. In more than one study, over 35% of Americans chose chocolate chip as their favorite cookie flavor.
Cookies with a dry, crisp texture last longer than soft, chewy varieties. Shortbread, danish, and gingersnap cookies keep for longer because they have very little moisture and thus don't spoil as quickly.
