 Fun Facts
bullet-drop.gif Just as Gilles Frozen Custard originated in the 1930s so did the chocolate chip cookie. It was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield in the mid-1930s. She owned the Toll House Inn, a popular restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts. Wakefield invented the chocolate chip cookie while improvising on a classic butterscotch nut cookie recipe. To this day, every bag of Nestlé chocolate chips sold in North America has her original recipe on it.
