When it comes to holiday baking, most of our judges say they reach for familiar ingredients mostly out of habit. Chocolate chips are a perfect example. I always grab the yellow bag because that's what I'm used to doing. But we wanted to see if the options really taste any different. We found eight brands of semi-sweet chocolate chips on grocery store shelves, and, after testing them all, I will be reaching for a different bag of chips when I start making cookies next week.
