Who doesn't love a good fortune cookie? They're the perfect way to end a delicious Chinese meal. And what could be more fun than cracking open a cookie to see your fortune inside?
Believe it or not, fortune cookies weren't always a part of Chinese cuisine. They were actually invented in America in the early 1900s by a Chinese-American baker named David Jung. Jung founded the Hong Kong Noodle Company in Los Angeles and began selling his cookies to local restaurants.
The cookies became so popular that they soon spread to other parts of the country. And today, they're enjoyed by people all over the world.
