May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day
May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day. Did you know Massachusetts resident Ruth Wakefield, owner of the Toll House Inn in Wakefield, accidentally invented the chocolate chip cookie in the 1930s when the chocolate she used to make her specialty cookies did not fully melt. The chocolate in that batch was from a bar of Nestle bitter chocolate. She reached out to Nestle and they began producing chocolate chips. Thanks, Ruth!!!
Besides the chocolate chip cookie, Massachusetts boasts many more inventions. Click through the gallery to see some of them. (Photo by Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images)
