Fortune Teller

Fantastic Fortunes taste more like gourmet French butter cookies drizzled in chocolate topped with a variety of other tasty treats than the standard fare you get at your local Chinese restaurant. They’re also at least five times the size of an ordinary fortune cookie. But, there is one thing that Fantastic Fortunes share with their cookie cousin—each one contains a fortune inside. And, here’s the really unique part—the fortune can be personalized turning these cookies into a sweet way to say thank you, happy birthday, thinking of you, get well, or any other message you want to send to anyone, anywhere in the USA. Located in picturesque Rollingsford, NH, Fantastic Fortunes is a family bakery, founded and run by husband and wife Troy and Cam Brisard with the help of their five children (aka their taste testing team). The Brisard kids aren’t the only ones who give these all-natural cookies rave reviews. Our testers couldn’t get enough of them and the company has even been recognized by The Phantom Gourmet. Fortune tellers, we are not. But we know a good thing when we taste it. And these cookies are sure to please.

    OMG. They look great. I was going to send them to my son and his college roommates for valentines day until I saw that the $19.95 is the price for one. Cute idea but too pricey. They may be delicious and made with great ingredients, but they're still too expensive to buy for something casual and clever. It would have to be a very special occasion! Sorry.

    Much as I'd love to order this wonderful cookie with a message congratulating my Grandson and his wife on their 'expecting a baby' news, the price truly is kind of high. I'd think something more like 2 for $21.95 or something like that would make more sense.

    Sorry, it really is a great idea, but the thought of just one cookie in itself is kinda silly, seems a set of 2 or 3 is more like it, you'd want to share right?

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your feedback on the price here. I know it may seem to be expensive for a typical fortune cookie, but these are far from typical. The size of these cookies is 3 times the size of what you're used to and they can feed up to 4 people each for dessert. They are 5 inches in diameter.

    They're also gourmet quality, hand dipped and all, fresh out of the oven. These cookies don't sit on the shelves. Plus, you can personalize each cookie with a custom fortune.

    @Amy

    First I think the size is not completely described in the promo. Fortune cookies are not that large to begin with and something 3x larger is ok but it is not that big or a cake.

    I must agree with the pricing being too high. Look at all the sales that were lost and if one could purchase 2 for this price one may have more customers. I expect, because it is the grommet promoting these, the ingredients are fine quality but gourmet sometimes that word is used just to increase the price. I would have loved to purchase this for a gift as the personalizing is a wonderful idea but not the price..I am sure one of the children can write or type one out, it should not be a reason for pricing. I mean it is a slip of paper not decoration on the cookie.

    Maybe the company should have a BOGO special. Even if there's only a % discount for multiple purchases! or a discount on shipping more than one cookie. Everyone would like some kind of savings for buying more than one... For me it's an incentive. I do love this idea, it's unique and with the message inside, its also personal. I mean, how many people can say they got a giant fortune cookie in the mail?

    I pretty much shop for a living (really) and I have not come across such a unique product that can be personalized. At first I did not think the $19.95 price tag was that over the top until I went to purchase one to be sent to Florida. When you add in the $8.66 for shipping it becomes almost a $30 single cookie gift. I will pass this find along to a business I work for however, for corporate gifts. Typically have deeper pockets than most consumers.

    I would love to purchase your gourmet fortune cookie w/a personalized fortune inside, but have to concur w/everyone else that $20 for one cookie is way over priced, even if it is "gourmet". Three cookies for $23.95 would be more reasonable. Elaine 01/22/2014

    Hi Elaine, and everyone else. I too, agree that the price is way too high, especially being that it's only 1 cookie, even for the size of it. I'm a 64 year old widow, and after seeing the price for one cookie, my checkbook actually started laughing at it. I even think that Elaine's idea of $23.95 for 3 cookies is high. That would mean each cookie would cost $7.98. I actually think they should go for $5.99 each, especially on top of shipping. But if buying directly in the store, I say raise the price to $6.99. What say, all? Hmmm?

    @Shari Grommet CEO here. Thanks for asking for feedback. I think we have all been trained to support mass market high production products at cheap prices. We understandably do a double take and have to reset our expectations if we want to support small and local businesses. My own response to this is to allocate 10% of my purchases against the values I want to support like Made in USA, All Natural, Innovation, Family Business (the ones I see here). But the price is indeed way too high if those are not your hot buttons or goals for using your consumer power. Our job at Grommet is to give everyone trusted information to make their own choices. I do prefer that people give constructive feedback without assuming their own values are universal.

    Our makers are really responsive and expert in their own fields so they take feedback on board. They love these Grommet community discussions in fact. But they can't always respond to or match big company or low quality pricing structures directly.

    I am always looking for small shops that produce unique, high-quality items that I can't find in every other store or maket around and that I can enjoy personally or give as gifts.

    I take into account the uniqness and high-quality value I feel I am getting when I determine whether an item is too pricey.

    While I feel that some chocolates I have purchased are well worth the cost because they are so very good and wonderful and quite the treat, others would simply cringe at that expense.

    Life is too short to not enjoy, to the fullest, items we consume.

    I choose to spend a little bit more for unique and high-quality, which also helps the smaller producers stay in business. Others choose not to, which might help larger commercial companies stay in business. Neither is right nor wrong. Each is a personal decision.

    @Chris I'd like to know if this 'natural' gourmet cookie is organic and gmo free. Otherwise it is not worth the price with shipping. Gmo products are not natural, even if the FDA says so.

  • Judith

    There is no getting around it, including the shipping and handling, $30.00 is much too high a price point for this product. It would seem more reasonable to either lower the price or include more product for the price if the manufacturer really wants to sell these to the average consumer. I don't think the explanation that they are a "gourmet" is going to help sell a $30. cookie.

    In would spend this much, or more, for flowers that will die in a few days. This, which can be shared and enjoyed by up to 4 people is a much better choice, at least for me, as a gift for my what-do-you-get-for-them parents. They can have the fun of looking at it, sharing with friends or just eating it themselves, and have the "fortune" message to keep. I say this is a win-win! I posted a link to this on my FB page. Good luck, Troy & family!

    Is anyone ever happy? Grommet launches a product made in China and the comment board is blasted with complaints about making things in America. They launch something made in America and the complaints are it's too expensive. To make it less expensive they could produce them in China, but then we're back to complaints about where it's made.

    I wish to comment that this is a wicked neat idea and I suspect that if you want a really nice, unique gift for someone it is right up your alley. My first thought was what an adorable way to propose marriage. I don't think $30 for such a special occasion and to support American jobs and entrepreneurism with a completely different and yummy product is outrageous. I would not spend that kind of cash on a snack to devour while watching a movie, but that is not likely an ideal way to use this product. It is neat and special and I enjoyed learning about it and the story behind its coming to being. Thank you Grommet for sharing it and keep up the great work!
