Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Who made the first fortune cookie?

Contrary to popular belief, fortune cookies are a western invention and are not a part of Chinese tradition. In fact, manufacturers have had limited success selling the treats in China because they are considered too American. Though their specific origin is unclear, fortune cookies as we know them were likely developed in California around the turn of the 20th century. The recipe was probably based on a type of Japanese cookie typically eaten with tea. The cookies did not have fortunes in them. Today, fortune cookies are served in North American Chinese restaurants, often with the bill. They enclose a small strip of paper with a predictive message, often with a Chinese translation or a series of lucky lottery numbers on the other side. Whether encouraging or portentous, delightful or ominous, the message in a fortune cookie is perhaps even more of a treat than the crisp confection itself.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
