Personalized Fortune Cookies – Write the Perfect Sayings

a210_c3If you Wrote Fortune Cookie Sayings, What would they be?

Fortune cookies have become inextricably linked with American-Asian food and have infiltrated into popular culture as well. Customized fortune cookies are sent to family and friends for fun. They are often used to propose marriage to a special person. Advertising agencies use them in their campaigns. Fortune cookies, contrary to popular beliefs, are as American today as baseball and apple pies.

Have you been given a fortune cookie while visiting a Chinese restaurant? Chances are that you have wondered about how they manage to slip in that piece of paper into the cookie.

If you have never seen a fortune cookie, let me describe what they are like. They are small, firm golden colored cookies small enough to fit into your palm. What makes them unique is that they are folded in a butterfly shape to create a pocket which holds a ½ x 2” strip of paper “fortune”.

Are you planning to write funny fortunes? It is great fun to write funny and humorous fortunes for fortune cookies especially meant for friends. Write the fortune using your imagination, knowledge of the nature of the recipient and lastly keep the meaning precise and crystal clear.

* Keep in mind your friend’s personality.

When writing a fortune for your friend, keep in mind his or her nature, likes and dislikes.

* Predict fortunes that will take place at the event.

If you have organized a party for friends and plan to serve fortune cookies during the party, then you can write humorous fortunes foreseeing events that take place in the course of the party.

* Write separate fortunes for each visitor.

If you can make the time, writing individual fortunes for your guests is a great idea. Figure out one wish that each of your guests want and tuck that into their cookies. Watch the fun bubbling over during the party as they read their fortunes.

* Convert humorous fortunes into an entertaining game.

Make each fortune in a cookie a command and play a game with fortune cookies at your party. If a person’s fortune reads: wish the birthday girl mimicking a popular star, then that person will have to perform the task.

* Insert tongue twisters in the guise of fortunes.

One rib-tickling idea would be to inscribe the fortunes with tongue twisters. Your guests at a party would have to read out aloud their tongue twisters while eating the cookie. What fun!

* Concise and clear sentence construction.

If the meaning is unclear or the phrase is too long-winded the fortune will cease to be interesting. So remember this during composition. Most fortune cookie fortunes need to be kept to about 22 words max.

* Be equivocal.

If you want to predict some funny, exciting yet likely event, write a generalized fortune. For instance “you will meet an interesting person today” or “tomorrow promises to be an eventful day.” You can’t go wrong with these.

* Rhyming fortune message.

Phrasing the fortune in the form of say a rhyming couplet is a simple yet ingenious touch.

So just abide by the basic guidelines and let your imagination run riot.

How Fortune Cookies Are Made

“How are fortune cookies made?” is a question we get all the time.

It’s actually an ancient Chinese secret… and most of the time I laugh and say “Keebler Elves!” But now I will reveal a few pieces of the puzzle to you.

Fortune Cookies are actually birthed on high speed baking machines. First, our flavored fortune cookie batter is mixed fresh every day for each custom fortune cookies batch. Sorry, no fortune cookie recipes here as it’s our top secret formula! FancyFortuneCookies does use premium ingredients like grade a flour, raw sugar, and eggs. All our flavored fortune cookies are made with super specialized flavorings and food colorings. It took years to develop some of our flavors and our fortune cookies are very recipe specific.

In fact we are continually trying out new flavored fortune cookies to see if we come across something our customers would like. If you have any fortune cookie suggestions please let us know!

The fortune cookie batter is put on into a flat round pancake type shape. Here at FancyFortuneCookies we are a real live fortune cookie bakery. Every order is made fresh the day it ships out. Most of our orders are for custom fortune cookies. But there are many people who still order the Chinese good luck fortunes too. Regardless, we actually bake your fortune cookies right here in Indianapolis, IN.

HandFoldedGGate As the fortune cookie batter goes around the conveyors it is baked. For many years the hot fortune cookies where actually hand-folded while the fortune was slipped inside. But now the personalized fortunes are slipped into the fortune cookies and the folding system is also automated.

After that the fortune cookies need to be cooled, and wrapped. We use an entirely clear cello for our fortune cookies so people can see the colors or the chocolate dipped fortune cookies with sprinkles.

Many fortune cookie companies on the internet don’t actually make your fortune cookies. Often they are just re-selling someone else cookies, so to compete on price with the middle-man markups, they have to use ingredients that aren’t a good quality. Which is why most fortune cookies taste so bad. If you are ordering chocolate dipped fortune cookies with personalized messages, the fortune cookies are being made at one location and shipped unwrapped to another location, where they are finally dipped, sprinkled and wrapped.

FancyFortuneCookies taste so good because they are baked fresh daily, dipped in chocolate, and wrapped all in the same day.

Give The Gift of Good Fortune This Holiday Season

This holiday season it seems like budgets are smaller and time is tighter, yet we all still want to give a gift that creates a memory we can treasure and share forever.

I just spent Thanksgiving with my mom and it really felt like every moment was rushed and hurried. After four and a half days at her house, I still feel like I didn’t really get much meaningful time with the the family. For Christmas I don’t think I will be traveling. It’s too time consuming, and there is too much laundry to do before and then again after the trip. Instead I think I will send my family each a giant fortune cookie.

There really isn’t anything I can say I really need… and honestly, nothing I want – except maybe a bit more money in the bank – and to create some good, magical holiday memories.

So this year I am sending my family members something unique and a bit different, something that will be a conversation piece and hopefully a fun memory we can recall in the coming years.

What is this unique gift? Well, it’s an edible gift, it’s filled with good fortune, it’s ancient and Chinese… Yep a giant fortune cookie!

And inside each cookie I will put a message to tell them just how special they are to me and WHY they are special to me. I learn from them. My three brothers, my mom, my dad, my new step-mom and two step-brothers all have something to teach me about who I am. They bring things up from the past that I have forgotten and that reminds me of who I was and shows me who I have grown to be. They each have behaviors and attitudes I hope I never develop, and at the same time they often surprise me with their generosity and thoughtfulness… and show me attributes I hope to cultivate in myself.

Mostly they make me laugh and feel deeply grateful for all that I am, all that I have, and all I will be. I love them. I wouldn’t live any closer to them.

So I will send them good fortune in a giant fortune cookie this year. Maybe a holly and berry giant fortune cookie, or the gingerbread giant fortune cookie I talked about last week. Hopefully this will give them something unique and fun to think and share and of course gobble down…

Fortune Cookies for Wedding Receptions

All you bride’s out there looking for a new, fun, and unique wedding favor idea should read this. Melissa is now a raving fan of Fancy Fortune cookies! Here’s what she had to say about the fortune cookie favors she used at her wedding reception – They were also fortune cookie gifts for the guests to take home!

Erin, the fortune cookies were a big hit at our wedding reception!

We ordered our fortune cookies with 5 funny marriage quotes. The cookies were then placed in small chinese take-out boxes that were given away as favors to our guests.
While on our honeymoon, we found a silver fortune cookie shaped box. We’re going to keep one of each of the fortunes from the cookies in the box as a keepsake.

The service was fantastic! My questions prior to ordering were answered promptly, the cookies arrived on time, the fortunes were exactly what I ordered and the cookies were delicious!

Several people said that the cookies were the best fortune cookies they had tasted. We joked that we would keep a stash of your fortune cookies for when we order Chinese food in the future to replace the sub-par cookies provided by the restaurant.

I was very, very happy with my experience with Fancy Fortune Cookies! I can’t think of anything you could have done better. I don’t have pictures of the fortune cookies, unfortunately, but I do have pictures from the reception of the Chinese take-out boxes that the cookies were placed in.

I can’t say enough how pleased I am with the cookies and the service provided.

Thank you!
Melissa S.

Here are the wedding fortunes from Melissa’s fortune cookie favors.

I was married by a judge. I
should have asked for a jury.
~ Groucho Marx

Marriage is a three ring
circus: Engagement ring,
wedding ring, and suffering.

A wedding is a lot like a
funeral, except that you get
to smell your own flowers.

Marriage is nature’s way of
keeping us from fighting
with strangers.

All marriages are happy. It’s
the living together afterward
that causes all the trouble.

Cute Fortune Cookies for Kids

Here is a story I received from a customer earlier today. I really think it’s a great idea for any kind of kids party, especially birthday parties and class parties. Well, she can tell you better than I can!

Thank you for the wonderful personalized Cherry flavored fortune cookies.
My story: We adopted our daughter from China April 2005. On February 8, 2008 it was her 4th birthday which this year happened to be the day after Chinese New Year started (2/7/08). I asked if I could do a Chinese New Year/Birthday party for her preschool class.
I made cupcakes, used red sprinkles and gold flakes to decorate the icing, then placed a custom fortune cookie on top of each cupcake.
Most of these 3 & 4 year olds did not even know what the fortune cookie was, we had to show them how to break it open and NOT TO EAT THE PAPER inside, it was their fortune. It was a good learning adventure for all of us.
Thank you for your time and efforts. I have attached a picture of the cupcakes.

So keep custom fortune cookies in mind for upcoming kids birthdays, and end of school parties! Kids LOVE or gourmet fruit fortune cookie flavors.
