Fortune Cookies: they’re American!

The fortune cookie is one of those after-meal-treats that always puts a smile on my face.

But did you know that it originated in California? That’s right. It’s American.

There is a lot of confusion about who invented the first one, when and in which city.

But it is known that they are not Chinese in origin and that the first ones were made by chopsticks around the early 1900s.

Fortune cookies were all made by hand until the invention of the first fortune cookie machine in 1964 – which revolutionized the industry.

Yet in 1989, when ‘Genuine American fortune cookies’ were introduced into China, it was without success as they were considered ‘too American’.

Today over 3 billion fortune cookies are made each year around the world.
