Giant Fortune Cookies review and giveaway-CLOSED

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! 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 love fortune cookies - they're sweet, crunchy and have a random saying on the inside (I once had a fortune tell me "you will be getting older", which certainly beats the alternative lol). I was turning cartwheels when I had the opportunity to review and host a giveaway from Giant Fortune Cookie!

I reviewed the Happy Birthday Giant Fortune Cookie Gift (dark chocolate bright conf & candies). My mom's birthday is in October, and it can be so hard to shop for her! The Giant Fortune Cookie was unique and very impressive, and we enjoyed every bite. How does it taste? Well, imagine a normal fortune cookie, only monster sized (this cookie is huge!), with a wonderfully fresh-made taste, crisp texture, and then coat it in decadent dark chocolate, and toss on beautiful, colorful sprinkles and larger candy confeti pieces for good measure (I know you're drooling). For the final flourish, the giant cookie is carefully wrapped in plastic to preserve freshness, tied off with a beautiful bow (my cookie had a cheerful red one), and nestled into a white box and cushioned gently with paper shreds for an elegant presentation.

Giant Fortune Cookies has a wide selection of cookies available, from vanilla with white, dark or milk chocolate to a special holiday flavor - gingerbread. The Giant Fortune Cookie has a fortune cookie available for any occasion (sprinkles and confetti are available in a rainbow of colors and styles), and would be perfect for anyone on your Christmas list (see their holiday selection here), which is only 2 months away!

Giant Fortune Cookies has a sister company, Fancy Fortune Cookies, which offers a wide range of flavored cookies, such as Black Rasberry (perfect for Halloween!) and Lemon. These cookies are normal sized fortune cookies, and look delicious (I definitely want to try the Orange!). Fancy Fortune cookies also offers Chinese Carryout Boxes, Available in White and several vibrant colors including: Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Green, Black, Bubblegum Pink, Hot Pink, Periwinkle, Chocolate Brown, and Lime Green! ***Other designs available. Just ask us for details.

The flavored cookies would also be perfect for that special someone for Christmas - unique and yummy :)

Both the flavored fortune cookies and Giant Fortune Cookies come with a personalized fortune (how about "I'm fortunate to have you as a teacher" for your child's teacher). Stumped? Check out "Fortune Cookie Sayings" on their blog.

Giant Fortune Cookies and Fancy Fortune Cookies is operated by a husband and wife team, who work together all the time and bring their 14 month old daughter to the bakery with them every day. Kudos to both of you!!

  25. Hmmmm.... what would my fortune be? I think it would say. "You will have happy new baby" I am on baby #4 and really praying for a good baby. My first two were really tough - health issues, etc. My third has been wonderful. My husband and I were just talking last night about whether or not it would be possible to have 2 good babies in a row.

    We will have to wait and see!

    Thanks again for the great giveaway. :)
