Giveaway & Review: Fancy Fortune Cookies [CLOSED]

I have eaten fortune cookies all my life, but I've never had ones like these gourmet fortune cookies from . I never knew they could come in so many varieties. Some of them are so colorful and fun, it seemed like a shame to eat them (of course, that didn't stop my family from eating every last one).

Fancy Fortune Cookies, the home of the Giant Fortune Cookie, also offers personalized fortunes to fit your occasion. Both major corporations and celebrities, like Oprah Winfrey, rely on these unique cookies for promotions and gifts. My husband and I actually threw a traditional Chinese banquet for our wedding reception and these would have been perfect wedding favors for the guests. They look so festive and fun, but elegant at the same time.

What my family and I thought about these assorted fortune cookies:

1) I was so impressed when the cookies arrived. They were packaged so carefully that not one fortune cookie was broken or even cracked.

2) I was skeptical about freshly baked cookies having a 60 day shelf life, but each cookie was crisp and fresh whether they were plain or had been dipped in chocolate.

3) My favorite flavor is the classic vanilla dipped into milk chocolate with confetti sprinkles, while my dear husband preferred the chocolate-dipped chocolate fortune cookies.

4) Our 5yr old loved any flavor of chocolate-dipped, while his 2yr old sister liked all of the fruit flavored fortune cookies. Their 2yr old brother was not so discriminating. He loved them all!

I have to say that these cookies are definitely a crowd-pleaser. Not only are they delicious, but they are just plain fun. They are definitely not boring and actually are a challenge for children to eat because of their unusual shape. My children tried many different approaches . . . from eating all the chocolate off the outside first to nibbling at the cookie like a little bunny.
