Do you have a cause you believe in too? If so fortune cookies work like a charm when you put your special messages inside. Make them clever. Tell them the benefits of donating to your cause. Sell them for a contest with a few cookies containing prizes.

2. Glam Alert

Wow all of your guests. Serve them party favors that are one of a kind and so cute you’ll get compliments galore. Thank them for coming with your custom fortune cookie messages, or use them as a fun mixer.

Having a pretty party all in pink? Perfect! Because you’ll be able to dazzle your guests or friends with our delicious Raspberry fortune cookies. Add extra pizzazz by having them dipped in luscious white, milk or dark Chocolate. Or try our new Party Colored pink chocolate cookies.

3. Let The Fun Begin...The Secret Party Ice Breaker
David X is famous. You may have seen his home on HGTV’s Amazing Homes. And he loves….we mean loves… to throw A-List parties. In Los Angeles every year he holds a bash for his close Hollywood friends and clients. He uses fortune cookies to get the fun rolling, create hysterical laughter and cause people to get to know each other in an innovative way. Here’s what he does:
He sits down with one or two of his friends and they meticulously go through the elite guest list, creating a custom fortune for each and every guest. If there are 65 guests then he has us create 65 fortunes. Money is not an option. He only cares about giving his guests a unique, memorable and one of a kind experience. What do the fortunes say? Some are fun. Some are crazy, some are revealing, some are well known gossip about the recipient.

They’re obviously all inside jokes. But they get all the guests talking, laughing and gossiping in such a FUN way. You could have your own Inside Joke party, too. Important tip: Make sure you create fortunes that are NOT too personal or cynical, and make sure everyone has a good sense of humor. ☺

If this isn't quite your style, but you still need a fun icebreaker, you can customize fortune cookies with interesting questions. Like: Ask the person beside you what absolutely terrifies them.

4. Help! I Need Two Fortune Cookies NOW!
If you suddenly find that you need one or two fortune cookies FAST, then you can use this method. Here’s a great inside secret you can do at home to create fast, custom fortune cookies: the Microwave Method.

Here’s all you do:
• Go to your favorite Chinese restaurant and simply ask for a few cookies.   
• Type out your custom fortune and print it out. Trim it to exactly the same size as the fortune inside the cookie. This is usually ½” wide and 2 ½” long.
• Place the fortune cookie inside the microwave. Make sure you take it out of the wrapper. Set your microwave to 15 seconds and turn it on. As soon as the microwave shuts off, immediately (really immediately) grab the cookie and see if it’s flexible. If it is, open the cookie, remove the fortune, replace it with your own and fold it back into a cookie shape and hold until the cookie cools. If it’s not flexible enough, run another 5 seconds. That’s it!

5. Fun Gifts And Favors 

Birthday Bash – Surprise someone with the most unique gift ever—the world’s largest fortune cookie, our one pound Giant. Plus, it comes with a huge fortune, so there’s lots of room to express yourself. Or, if you’re throwing a big party with lots of guests, order a batch of regular sized personalized fortune cookies. Make it personal by including favorite quotes, the name and age of the celebrant, perhaps over the hill messages, or any fun messages related to the honoree.

Happy Anniversary
– When you’re searching for a new idea, here’s a memorable way to say: I’m so glad we’re together. If renewing your vows, or having an anniversary party, custom fortune cookies are a great, inexpensive favor. We can match our cookies to any color scheme you can plan.

Sweet 16 – For the girl who’s not easily impressed, here’s a sure hit. Give her a personalized Giant Fortune Cookie, big enough to share with all her friends.
