In 1933 Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, made a batch of cookies to which she added broken chips of a semisweet Nestle chocolate bar. They were such a huge success that she struck a deal with the candy company to print her recipe on the chocolate wrappers in exchange for a lifetime supply of the bars. Originally sold with a small tool for chipping the bars into small morsels, Nestle unveiled the first chopped chocolate pieces in 1939, known today as Chocolate Chips. Nestle's cookie Toll House cookie brand wass named after the Whitman inn.
