The cookies have a sea faring name, compatible with Talk Like a Pirate day, but they were actually named after Chip A. Hoy, the CEO of Nabisco from 1923-1956. Originally called Chip’s Chips, they were renamed by Vice President Frank Wilson when Hoy went on vacation to London by boat and his wife Angela, who was there at the time, shouted “Ahoy, Chip!”
