Now for a little fun. In case you didn’t know, Fortune Cookies, like Chop Suey are American inventions. If there is no fortune in your cookie something good will happen to you soon. (Like the Fortune Cookie Fairy owes you one????)
Don’t forget to add the words “in bed” at the end of reading your fortune cookie aloud to those you are dining with. As you take your cookie make sure you don’t touch the others. That would cause them to have bad luck.
It is possible to order special fortunes to be placed inside cookies if you are celebrating a special event or having a party. There is also fortune cookie jewelry and fortune cookie fabric to create your own items. Finally a video on You Tube on how to make your own cookie out of felt or videos on how to make your own actual cookie. OK, OK this is way more information than anyone ever needed about these fun little cookies. I will stop now.
