    Member #610488's Note:

    The chocolate chip cookie was accidentally developed by Ruth Graves Wakefield in 1930. She owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts, a very popular restaurant that featured home cooking in the 1930s. Whether you believe the marketing surrounding the invention of the chocolate chip cookie as one where you believe Mrs. Wakefield substituted broken pieces of semi-sweet chocolate from Nestlé thinking that they would melt and mix into the batter or where you believe the vibrations from a large Hobart electric mixer dislodged bars of Nestlé's chocolate stored on the shelf above the mixer so they fell into the cookie dough it was mixing, then broke them up and mixed the pieces into it. Either way, an accident of tasty proportions created the all time favorite American cookie.
