So for my professional holiday presents (I don’t do personal presents generally, long Chinese story) I couldn’t resist ordering from Good Fortunes, which offers delicious special (and pricey) fortune cookies for all kinds of special occasions: Valentine’s Day, Hannukkah, Weddings, Mother’s Day, etc.
Anyway, here are the ones I gave out today. Above s their most popular set. The toffee ones are so so good. Good Fortunes also offers giant fortune cookies which are the size of footballs. They also offer a set of cookie couture clothing, like fortune cookie beaded panties (why?).
This is the x-mas set — sorry about the plastic reflection. We didn’t open this one.
This is the set I got for my friend Sewell, who is genetically Chinese, but I swear is actually more Jewish than many of the reformed Jews I know.
I’ve been to visit their factory, which is just outside Los Angeles. Outside totally nondescript. Inside it’s very colorful and everyone is making these yummy fun desserts with liquid sugar and chocolate oozing. It feels kinda like going to Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory, except instead of Oompa Loompas, it’s staffed by Latina women.
