The Hadhads were left with nothing after rockets rained down on their home and destroyed the factory that housed the family chocolate-making business.

The origins of the modern chocolate chip lie with Ruth Wakefield, the woman who created the Toll House cookie in the 1930s. But the name “chocolate chip” is older than that, writes Kate Erbland for Mental Floss. The original “Chocolate Chips” were small cookies that probably bore a resemblance to the original kind of “chips,” according to Merriam-Webster : chips of wood. Then in 1892, Erbland writes, “the ‘chip’ title was first applied to candy, as a Kaufmanns candy ad from the time boasted of their supply of ‘chocolate chips. But the chocolate chips they were making weren’t the modern candy: a court case in 1897 over the trademark for “Trowbridge Chocolate Chips” said the candies bearing that name were “thin oblong pieces of molasses coated in chocolate,” she writes.
