#1 Fortune Cookies in China? MYTH

This is a myth! Great answer Jen. Fortune cookies were invented in California in the early 1900s. It then made it's way all across the Nation and then to Canada. However, it never reached China.

May be they had a ship wreck or a plane crash during it's transport across/over seas. Perhaps a group of Somalian Pirates captured the ship and killed all the crew members? Whatever the reason may be as to why these awesome cookies never made its to China is unknown. I mean if Oreo cookies, chips ahoy,snicker bars and other American goodies could make their ways onto Chinese grocery shelves, then I can't see why fortune cookies never made their way into restaurants in China.
