Does anyone else really like eating fortune cookies? I know many people just crack them open, read the fortune and then toss the actual cookie. I do the opposite. I dump the fortune and eat the cookie.

They are light, crunchy treats. I love them so much, I actually bought a large box of them off of Ebay. I'm going to try making some myself.

Anyone else into fortune cookies?

I read that once a supplier accidentally sent x-rated fortune cookies to restaurants. It wasn't found out until customers complained (but I bet a lot of them cracked up too).

I don't care for them, really.

I love them! The cookies and the fortunes, both. My boyfriend and I bought a huge bag of them -- this brand's cookies have a great vanilla taste to them. Every time I'm at his house before he gets home, I'll eat one (we left the bag at his house because I have no self-control) and hope that the fortune is one that we'll both get a kick out of. Also: whenever we order Chinese food, I ask for three fortune cookies -- one for him, one for me, and one for the both of us. It's my "shtick."

By the way, do you know the "rule" about fortune cookies? You're not supposed to hand someone a cookie (you can't hand someone their fortune). They have to choose the cookie (and, therefore, the fortune) on their own.

I am neutral.

I will eat them if given them at the end of a meal, but I certainly don't crave them, or think, "Oh, how I wish I had more of these delicious treats." They're just okay.

My sister has a "rule" that you have to eat the cookie, then read the fortune. If you read the fortune before eating the cookie, or don't eat the cookie,it invalidates the fortune.

Once a bunch of people from work went to a Chinese (Chinese-American) restaurant for lunch. Out of all of us, one guy had a fortune cookie with no fortunate in it. He asked for another, and that one also had no fortune. Good thing he''s not superstitious

I'll eat them but am not crazy about them. I like them with tea.

I too am neutral. I will eat one if I am given one and read the fortune but it is no big deal.

Some brands are better than others. I like some of them. There is one kind--it's a little thicker than the usual ones, & it has a lot of vanilla extract in it. Yum. Years ago, we used to go to a place in San Francisco that sold them with the X-rated fortunes. We'd bring them back for our friend, a Chinese chef. He'd give them out to friends after a meal at his upscale restaurant--it was pretty funny! That was long before the internet--I'm sure you can order them online now.
