1. Fun Fact #1
Legend has it, chocolate chips weren’t an intentional creation. Back in the 1930s, Ruth Wakefield put chunks of a Nestle chocolate bar into her cookie batter. She reportedly thought the chocolate chunks would melt in the oven, but when they didn’t chocolate chips became a thing.
2. Fun Fact #2
Two years after she happened upon her delicious creation, Wakefield struck a deal with Nestle—her chocolate chip cookie recipe for a lifetime supply of chocolate.
3. Fun Fact #3
In 1975, legendary soul singer Isaac Hayes released an album he titled ‘Chocolate Chip.’ The project was Hayes’ first after leaving Stax Records and it was also his way of merging into disco.
