Where was the Fortune Cookie invented?

  • China
  • Japan
  • Mongolia
  • U.S. correct

    Fortune cookies were invented in California and are not even Chinese-American. There is debate of whether fortune cookies started in Los Angeles or San Francisco, but for certain, early fortunes featured Biblical sayings, or aphorisms from Confucius, Aesop, or Ben Franklin. Later, fortunes included recommended lottery numbers, smiley faces, jokes, and sage, if hackneyed, advice.
