Ahhhhh fortune cookies, sometimes they can make you go all excited about your fortune, and sometimes, you just feel flat and feel underwhelmed with them. Now, cat-based novelty goods maker, Felissimo, is putting a cute and unique twist to the classic fortune cookie.
Instead of the usual folded sweet cookie, we get a nice triangular-shaped rice cracker, also known as sanbei, but what makes this take unique is that instead of the usual note containing some fortunes or words of wisdom, we get a cute cat figurine, and like the usual fortune cookies, we won’t know what’s inside until we crack it open.
Called Dagashi Nyanko Kakurenbo, or Hide-and-Seek Kittie Candies, they come in pairs of individually wrapped sanbei, and along with a bag of karinto sweets.
Each figurine is handcrafted, and come in several designs, all of which are in fact very cute, coming in a variety of poses and colors. You would not know which one you will be geting until you crack open that sanbei!
The designs are actually different each month, so like fortune cookies, you might need some luck finding the one you want. Each bundle is being sold for 2,372(2200+tax) yen on Felissimo’s website.
