Chocolate Chip Takes The Top Spot for Ontario’s Favourite Cookie

 Whether you dunk it or prefer crunchy or soft, chocolate chip cookies are Ontario‘s #1

GUELPH, ON (August 4, 2021) – The results are in – 45 per cent of Ontarians have ranked chocolate chip cookies as their cookie of choice in a recent study conducted by Good in Every Grain, a public outreach campaign developed by Grain Farmers of Ontario to tell the story of Ontario‘s grain farms and farmers to everyone in Ontario.  
Good across generations
Ontarians aged 18-54 are significantly more likely to prefer chocolate chip compared to those aged 55+ who are partial to oatmeal raisin.
“We had a lot of cookie choices for people, but I guess there is something about chocolate chip cookies that sets them apart in our minds. Whenever I think of chocolate chip cookies, I think of my mom dunking them in her coffee and smiling at me,” said Victoria Berry, Manager, Communications at Grain Farmers of Ontario.  “We are definitely all about celebrating the wonderful, safe, delicious grains Ontario farmers produce, but this is also a time that we are turning to food for comfort, for security, and in the case of this survey, even a bit of fun.”
Good in the top 10
Rounding out the top ten cookie choices listed in order of preference are: chocolate chip, oatmeal,
oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, shortbread, OREO®, gingerbread, sugar, macaron, and biscotti.
Good in every grain
The inclusion of grains in a daily diet can help promote heart heath and help reduce the risk of
heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, and can play a role in maintaining a healthy weight.
