Fortune cookies are a part of the American lexicon of Asian sweets. Although usually associated with Chinese restaurants in North America and to some extent in Europe, they were most likely created by a Japanese American, based on the sweeter wheat versions of "senbe" snacks in Japan. Later, a Chinese noodle company in California started producing them, and the rest is history.
About 10 years ago, a Seattle woman created Mei Mei Chocolate Fortune Cookie company, dipping Tsue Chong fortune cookies into good quality chocolate and wrapping in colorful foil, instantly created a new fortune cookie experience. In the time since then, it's become a popular confection made by at least three Seattle companies.
We thought we'd restore a little bit of the Japanese-American connection by re-introducing fortune cookies with the flavor of Japanese green tea. We've asked a Seattle-based chocolate company to help us produce a matcha-flavored white-chocolate coated cookie. With the help of matcha from Three Tree Tea, you can now enjoy a new kind of fusion, currently available exclusively at YuzuMura.com.
