"To Give To Keep or To Share" whatever the reason or occasion our unique fortune cookies make the most magical whilst delicious gifts at the same time.
At Cracking Cookies we have taken the original concept of a fortune cookie and transformed it into something that would make even Willie Wonka’s factory look boring! Keep reading to find out "Where" fortune cookies came from, "Why" they make fabulous gifts and "What" we offer.
"Where" (The mysterious origin of the fortune cookie).
They are actually an American invention originating in California. There are many theories, and much speculation surrounding the mysterious origin of the fortune cookie. As to in which city the fortune cookie originated and as to who invented it, Chinese-American, Japanese-American or 14th century revolutionists, there has been much debate. In 1983, there was even a mock trial held in San Francisco's pseudo-legal Court of Historical Review to determine the origins of the fortune cookie.
(Michelle) I am one of 2 founders and creators of Cracking Cookies. I am also a great fan of fortune cookies, but when I say fan I am referring solely to the actual concept of having a fortune / message encased inside a cookie. After many years and an awful lot of uneaten and discarded fortune cookies later and watching so many other people do exactly as I would, which was to excitedly and in anticipation crack open my fortune cookie but be very quickly disappointed by the bland and terrible taste and the cardboard like texture followed by quite often an uninspiring fortune inside. My excitement and anticipation of my unknown fortune quickly disappeared and this is the sole inspiration behind the creation of Cracking Cookies!
