Judge who rules for L. Not Very Smart Cookie". A federal judge of the Court of Historical Review determined that the cookie originated with Hagiwara and the court ruled in favor of San Francisco. Subsequently, the city of Los Angeles condemned the decision. According to his story, he sold his cookies to Chinese restaurants where they were greeted with much enthusiasm in both the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas.
Thus Kito's main claim is that he is responsible for the cookie being so strongly associated with Chinese restaurants. Up to around World War II, fortune cookies were known as "fortune tea cakes"—likely reflecting their origins in Japanese tea cakes. One theory for why this occurred is because of the Japanese American internment during World War II, which forcibly put over , Japanese-Americans in internment camps, including those who had produced fortune cookies.
This gave an opportunity for Chinese manufacturers. Fortune cookies before the early 20th century were all made by hand. However, the fortune cookie industry changed dramatically after the fortune cookie machine was invented by Shuck Yee from Oakland, California. Rumors that fortune cookies were invented in China are seen as false.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 06, L-D rated it it was ok Shelves: I thought this story had a good premise and good potential, but I'm not sure if it's because I read the abridged version, but it seemed to kind of drag on a bit for me. The first friend of the sexy - six and did they give themselves that name? Happy about the success of the fortune cookie, she endeavors to share it with 3 more of her sexy-six crew. So the story starts out interestingly I thought this story had a good premise and good potential, but I'm not sure if it's because I read the abridged version, but it seemed to kind of drag on a bit for me.
So the story starts out interestingly enough, but then it gets a little belabored in the middle and I lost interest by the end when sexy-six members 5 and 6 show up.
Maybe it should have been left at the fab-four? Some of the couples I liked better than others. Jill and Chad seem to get along famously, but Rita and Niki annoyingly bicker the whole book. And the part where Sandy comes in view spoiler [ and they have some weird 3 way phone sex while Sandy and Niki are in a hot tub together hide spoiler ] started to get a little off the rails for me.
All in all I appreciate the free download, but I wish the plot didn't jump around so much.
