The last fortune cookie I got said something about whales in the desert. The fortunes in these cookies are not so much fortunes as they are words of wisdom, and they aren’t always relatable to our lives. Fortune cookies would be so much better if they contained an actual fortune. Felissimo, a company that sells cat-themed novelty items, thought the same thing.
Instead of wrapping little scraps of paper with words on them up in their cookies, Felissimo has created Hide-and-Seek Kittie Candies. These cookies have the best fortune inside: cat figurines.
According to RocketNews24, “[t]he snack set comes with a pack of cylindrical karinto sweets, and two individually wrapped crispy senbei rice crackers.” Inside each senbei rice cracker is a handcrafted cat figure; while both cats have the same coloring and markings, they have slightly different poses.
The designs are rotated periodically; getting the whole set requires a new order each month. The Hide-and-Seek Kittie Candies cost 2,372 yen (about $20 US). To order, visit the Felissimo website.
