Cookies Made from USS Yorktown’s WWII Recipe Now Available for Ordering Online

Mayci Rechner Oct 07, 2022

Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum’s popular “Captain Jocko’s Chocos” chocolate chip cookies are now available for ordering online and can be shipped to the hero in your life in time for Veterans Day. Only a limited number will be available and they are expected to sell out quickly.




The chocolate chip cookie recipe is original to the historic USS Yorktown aircraft carrier and was used during World War II to feed the thousands of sailors on board. The bakery crew produced 10,000 cookies at a time. This recipe used 112 pounds of chocolate chips, 500 eggs, and 165 pounds of flour in each batch. In April 2022, Patriots Point partnered with local veteran-owned bakery The Front Porch Coffeehouse & Creamery to produce these cookies for museum’s gift shop.

Patriots Point shared the cookies with WWII Yorktown veteran John McDade who said they taste just like he remembers from 80 years ago. McDade said, “They’re very good. And I should know, I’ve eaten a lot of these!”

Patriots Point and The Front Porch are launching online sales for the cookies in a limited amount. Sales are open now and will close on October 28 or when sold out. All cookies will ship in time to arrive for Veterans Day on November 11. The cookies sell in half dozen packages at $30 per package and a flat rate shipping rate of $12.50 per order.
