Accidentally Vegan: Fortune Cookies!

Accidentally Vegan: Fortune Cookies!

We all deserve a bit of good luck, and now we can read our fortunes and have our cookies too!

I found vegan fortune cookies after my meal last week. Several years ago that I could never eat fortune cookies because they always contained eggs.  What a nice surprise it was to find that fortune cookies, at least in some places, are now vegan!  If you’re out in a restaurant, I definitely urge you to check the ingredients on the back though, just to make sure.

In case you love fortune cookies so much that you’d like to keep a stash on-hand, I found vegan fortune cookies online through Amazon.  I discovered that the Golden Bowl vanilla and citrus flavors are vegan.  (The Golden Bowl chocolate flavor isn’t).  Fortune cookies can be great conversation starters for parties too… I think I see Golden Bowl fortune cookies in my future!

Vanilla flavor and citrus flavor cookies contain artificial flavors and colors. So you are recommending Hydrogenated oils, and (likely) GMO soybean products, and cottonseed oil which is also usually toxic from all the junk sprayed on the plant. I don’t expect a reply, at this time I… Read more »
