Fancy Fortune Giant Cookie Review and Giveaway


You ever been to a Chinese restaurant and at the end of dinner, got a fortune cookie? Well I guarantee you've never got a fortune cookie like the one I recently had the opportunity to try. It was a GIANT fortune cookie from Fancy Fortune Cookies. When I was asked it I wanted to review these, I was like sure. I am a lover of fortune cookies, to me that is the best part about going out for Chinese food. The giant fortune cookie was elegantly presented in a nice white box. I opened the box and it was beautifully wrapped in clear plastic and a pretty satin bow. I was shocked to see how big this cookie truly was! It definitely was not your average fortune cookie! It was almost the size of my little ones head! This cookie was dipped in White Chocolate, which is my absolute favorite kind of chocolate. We finally broke into it the other night and I was expecting a huge fortune to drop out of it. There wasn't a fortune, but if you order one from Fancy Fortune Cookies, you can personalize your own message to go inside of it. I just read on the website also that this giant fortune cookie is over 1lb of cookie, which was no wonder why it was so heavy! I broke it open and gave everyone a piece. My oldest daughter loved it, my hubby thought it was good and me? Well it was delicious, as a matter of fact as I am writing up this review, I am snacking on a little piece of it. The white chocolate coating is insanely good and I could taste a little hint of cinnamon and vanilla and we liked it best because it was sweet but not overly sweet. We also loved it because the coating was really creamy. This would be an awesome compliment to a nice Chinese Stir Fry Dinner at home or you favorite Chines dish. This truly was a special treat!


Fancy Fortune Cookies not only offers the Giant fortune cookies, they offer different flavors of the regular sized fortune cookies as well. Flavors include:
Cherry, Orange, Strawberry, Lemon, Raspberry, Blueberry, Black Raspberry, Cappuccino,

ABOUT FANCY FORTUNE COOKIES-
Mike Fry is the fortune cookie fanatic and flavoring pioneer. In 1987, he had a crazy idea while sitting in his favorite Chinese restaurant wondering why didn't anyone make fortune cookies in fun colors and fruit flavors like Jelly Bellies? He used to be a clown for Ringling Brothers and quit that job having no college or marketing degree. He had called 8 different Chinese Fortune Cookie makers back in 1987 and tried unsuccessfully to find any one of them to think he had a good idea. For the next two years he experimented and created tens of thousands of bad looking and bad tasting fortune cookies. Finally they found the right recipe and from there he's gone from not just inventing the very first flavors introduced to the Chinese only industry, but gone on to create a whole menu of fun flavors and colors your can customize with your own sayings.
Since 1987, he's invented over 17 different flavors used by many companies, restaurants and businesses across the US.
