Fortune cookies lose romantic messages


UPI News Service, 02/10/2013 

A spokesman for the world's largest fortune-cookie manufacturer said it has removed romantic messages from its treats in response to complaints from parents.

"Some parents sent us emails. They said they didn't want their kids reading them," said Derrick Wong, a VP at Brooklyn-based Wonton Food. "Different people have a different perspective."

The fortunes that have been abolished include, "One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes" and "The evening promises romantic interest," the New York Post reported.

Company officials said that if they get more than two or three complaints about a fortune, they will stop using them.

The New York Post said the messages have been replaced with "You make everyday special" and "No one on Earth is as beautiful as you."

Fortune-cookie experts, like Jennifer 8. Lee, author of "The Fortune Cookie Chronicles," said it's best to keep messages bland.

The company products 5 million cookies every day from plants in Long Island City and Queens, N.Y., Houston and elsewhere in Texas, the New York Post said.
