MMMMM. That is all I can say. Well, that is not true - I am never at a loss for words, although these humongous fortune cookies almost leave me speechless. I anxiously awaited the arrival of my Giant Fortune Cookie. After seeing them on other blogs and hearing the rave reviews - I just had to try one for myself. I was not disappointed. When they say "giant", they are not kidding. Here is a picture I took of the cookie next to my cat. Look how big it is in comparison to my kitty's head!
From the Giant Fortune Cookie website:
Sending a giant fortune cookie is like sending an edible wish that expresses your thoughts & feelings in a way they will never forget. They’ll receive the largest, freshest and tastiest fortune cookie they’ve ever seen in their life. Whether it’s a special birthday wish, a from the heart anniversary gift, a giant I love you message, or corporate thank you fortune – we guarantee they’ll love it.
Every giant fortune cookie is baked fresh daily, hand made, carefully dipped in the finest chocolate, and expertly decorated just for your special occasion. Each giant fortune cookie comes individually wrapped and beautifully packaged in a distinctive white gift box. Best of all, your cookie comes with your personalized message inside!
Don't forget Father's Day is just around the corner! How excited would your dad or husband be to receive his very own Father's Day Giant Fortune Cookie. I can only imagine the looks on their faces with they pull this mammoth fortune cookie out of the box. Each cookie comes dipped in yummy milk chocolate and decorated just for dad in bold colors. This giant fortune cookie gift is individually wrapped in quality French Cellophane and comes carefully packaged in a white gift box. No wrapping or card required!
If your dad is tired of power tools, neckties and grill accessories – this gift is a sweet change of pace. The best part? You can personalize a fortune especially for him (oh, think of the possibilities!).
Giant Fortune Cookies are available for just about any occasion you can think of. You can choose from White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate, and pick different decorations to suit any recipient or event. They even have cookies for new babies (well, for the new mom and dad) - This one is for a baby boy.
Giant Fortune Cookies is a sister company of Fancy Fortune Cookies which has been in the business of making and reliably delivering personalized gourmet fortune cookies since 1988 worldwide. I also received a few of their flavored regular size fortune cookies and they are really good too. I tried Coconut, Cherry, Lemon and others - they are very, very fresh and full of flavor!
Bottom line? My whole family enjoyed our Giant Fortune Cookie immensely. The packaging was so beautiful, that I hated to open it, but sometimes you've just got to do it. We broke off pieces, and shared nicely. I hope you will keep Giant Fortune Cookies in mind for gift giving - these are definitely something you do not see everyday!
