Did you ever wonder that food, especially a ‘COOKIE’ can show your fortune infront of you ?
Well I was going through my feed yesterday and soon I discovered a cookie that contains luck! Yes ‘The fortune cookie’ which seemed compulsive to me to write upon so I decided to scrutinize on this…
I started acquiring information on this special cookie and I was surprised to find out that Fortune cookies are uniquely-shaped, crisp cookies made from a simple recipe of flour, sugar, oil and either vanilla or almond flavoring. They are called fortune cookies, because each cookie breaks open to reveal a small slip of paper — a ‘FORTUNE” — with a prediction for the future, a wise saying, a Chinese word or phrase with its translation, or even a list of lucky numbers.
Even though fortune cookies can be found in nearly every Chinese restaurant in America, you won’t find them very often in China! In fact, fortune cookies are not even the part of the Chinese tradition.
When I researched more about it, the only question coming in my mind was that is the luck in this real or just a myth and I finally came across the truth. I got to know that for predicting the future, no, fortune cookies have the special powers of foresight. The fortune cookie you open at a Chinese restaurant came into your hands randomly. If it happens to contain a fortune that comes true, it’s just coincidence.
Besides, many fortunes don’t even predict the future. Instead, they may offer simple advice that may or may not be helpful. If you’re looking for insight into your future, you probably don’t want to place too much importance on a tiny slip of paper from a mass-produced cookie!
You might, however, want to use the “lucky numbers” sometimes listed in fortune cookies if you play the lottery. In March 2005, over 100 people claimed second-place prizes in the Powerball lottery, because they had all used the same set of lucky numbers contained in a batch of fortune cookies!
So if you ever get a chance to have this cookie , enjoy it don’t think much about what fortune it will bring in your life though it would be exciting to see what is buried inside our piece !
