I always read the fortunes, and I'll taste the cookies. If they're good ones, I'll eat them.

Nay, but my daughter really likes them so I always but extra. Big Lots used to sell them in a box and I always bought them for her.

You do realize that fact has no negative effect on the taste - I love the things. Yank out that inedible paper insert and poke some fortune cookies into servings of ice cream. Your guests will talk about that simple dessert for quite some time.

Ice cream!! Cool idea. I usually eat them plain but I know what I'll be having for dessert tonight.

There not my favorite. I may or may not have it at a Chinese restaurant depending on my mood I guess. I would never buy them. They kind of remind me of an ice cream sugar cone.

Love 'em.

IMHO the best are made by Twin Dragon. (Look for the pink box.)

Fortune cookies are the only part of a "chinese food" meal that I would eat.

Went through a brief phase maybe when I was in my late teens, where I'd buy a package of fortune cookies at grocery store & eat them-
sometimes there was a commercial brand in a box, other times they were just in a bulk carton with saran wrap, priced by weight.
Not for the fortunes, but simply because the cookie was sweet yet bland.

Eventually, I grew bored of them-nowadays, my teeth aren't up to the job of crunching such a hard/brittle cookie.

I don't know what's going on in your living room for that expression to come to mind.
