Some of Cookie Monster’s favorite cookies include chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Cookie Monster has a voracious appetite and will eat almost anything, including apples, cutlery, letters and hubcaps.
While chocolate chip was long believed to be Cookie Monster’s favorite cookie, his original recipe for old-fashioned sugar cookie dough was revealed in the 1970s, in “Big Bird’s Busy Book.”
In 2005, in response to a rise in childhood obesity, the producers of “Sesame Street” introduced a new song called “A Cookie is a Sometimes Food” that teaches Cookie Monster about moderation, and the need to control his cookie cravings.
The furry blue monster with the googly eyes is one of the most beloved Muppet characters on the long-running children’s show, “Sesame Street.” In 2004, Cookie Monster revealed in a song that his real name is Sidney.
