Uncommon Knowledge: Who made the first fortune cookie?

March 10, 2013

The fortune cookie has a number of origin stories, but none of them start in China! One of the earliest dates back to Los Angeles baker David Jung, who distributed cookies stuffed with biblical passages to the homeless as early as 1918. What we do know for sure is that China didn’t actually get a taste of the fortune cookie until it came to the country in 1993, sold as “genuine American fortune cookies.”
