A History of Chocolate ‘Chips’: did you know…

  • Chocolate chip cookies, which were invented in 1933 when Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts added cut-up chunks of a semi-sweet Nestlé chocolate to a cookie recipe.
  • The cookies were a huge success, and Wakefield reached an agreement with Nestlé to add her recipe to the chocolate bar’s packaging in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate.
  • Initially, Nestlé included a small chopping tool with the chocolate bars, but in 1939 they started selling the chocolate in chip (or “morsel”) form.
