Food mystery

Why do ice-cream cones and fortune cookies taste the same? Maybe they just seem to; I've never eaten both on the same day or made a comparison close in time. The cones are formed from a nearly paper thin and very smooth substance and the cookes are more pebbly in texture. Yet, both are rolled, cut, pressed, and formed. Since cookes arrive individually wrapped these days and without an ingredient list, I may never know. Here are the ingredients listed on a box of barquillos grandes para helado from H-E-B: enriched wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil shortening, leaavening, salt, natural flavor [?], and annatto (vegetable color).
