One Sweet Tale
We’ve been helping you make memories for more than 75 years. Here’s how it all started.
A True Original
At the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts, Ruth Wakefield cuts up a NESTLÉ Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar and adds the bits to her cookie recipe. They didn’t melt, they just softened, and the rest is cookie history.
Cheering Up the Troops
During World War II, bakers in the U.S. made and sent treats including NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE chocolate chip cookies off to soldiers overseas to lift their spirits and give them a taste of home.
Rethinking a Family Favorite
Our innovation doesn't stop with ingredients. In the 1960s, we came up with a quicker way to enjoy scratch-made taste: the pan cookie. This recipe made it easier than ever to share love through baking.
Our New Take on Fresh-Baked
Pan cookies were great, but in the 90's we realized we could offer bakers an easier way to enjoy NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE with Refrigerated Cookie Dough. Since then this innovative cookie dough has spread joy to millions of cookie fans.
Official State Cookie
Massachusetts officially recognized the chocolate chip cookie as an official state cookie.
Americans prefer chocolate chip cookies 3:1 over any other cookie according to Impulse Research 2014 survey Downtown Cookie Co.
