75 Years of the Nestle Chocolate Morsel

1939 was an important year in American pop culture. Some of the greatest Hollywood movies, including "Gone With the Wind" and the "Wizard of Oz" were released. Lou Gehrig retired and the "World of Tomorrow" World’s Fair opened in New York. In the annals of baking, the chocolate chip cookie was created at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. A key ingredient in this iconic cookie is the Nestle Morsel which turns 75 this year. Here to tell us more about its past, present and future is Roz O’Hearn, Communications & Brand Affairs Director.
