    • Spoon 1/4 teaspoon of the Dip mix onto each rectangle and spread to 1/2 from sides
    • Roll rectangles up starting with the topped side. **Press to seal

Saturday - Sunday, September 14–15: National Fortune Cookie Day(s)

  • Pick up your fortune cookie to see what your fortune reads.
    • Your History Lesson: This day celebrates the creation of the Fortune Cookie. What a great cookie. A little slip of paper inside of it brings you good luck, a whimsical saying, or a philosophical thought. (we favor good luck…we can use all we can get). Its pretty clear that the Fortune Cookie did not originate in China. Rather, it was invented in California. There appears to be some uncertainty over who invented it. Some historical references suggest it was Makoto Hagiwara who invented the fortune cookie at the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco in 1914. Others believe that David Jung, founder of the Hong Kong Noodle Company, was the first to make fortune cookies in Los Angeles in the 1920s.
