The company that owns this brand, Artiach, is a Spanish company dedicated to the manufacture of cookies. It was founded in 1907 in Bilbao by the family of the same name.
But what I want is to tell you the peculiarity of this cookie. Jackie Coogan, the actor who gave his name to Chiquilín cookies.
This actor, triumphed all over the world at just 7 years old thanks to his appearance in the film 'El Chico' by Charles Chaplin.
Artiach used the artistic nickname of this child, a silent movie star during the 1920s, to attract children to his product.
These were times of silent movies and comic films used recognizable archetypes instead of dialogues, so that in some countries the distributors chose to give the recurring characters of the films some name.
Thus, the films were better promoted and complicated foreign names or surnames were avoided.
Among the artistic nicknames given in the 1920s to different North American actors were also Ambrosio, Tomasín, Merenguito, Nicomedes or Chiquilín, which is the one that interests us today because it ended up baptizing the most famous biscuits in Bilbao.
