The fortune cookies at Big Bowl, which are going au natural, will be more fortuitous than usual on September 13 - National Fortune Cookie Day.
Those slivers of white paper tucked inside the crunchy iconic cookies will bestow well wishes, but many of them will offer complimentary treats. They will include FREE fresh squeezed lemonade, housemade ginger ale, potstickers and egg rolls.
The everyday fortune cookie is burdened by a lot of artificial ingredients so why not offer one that fits Big Bowl's commitment to natural, sustainable, organic, local and eco-friendly?
Fortella, a family-owned business in Chicago's Chinatown for the last 25 years, took up the challenge and created a recipe that's all natural without dyes and artificial ingredients. The new fortune cookie is made of wheat flour, sugar, coconut and or soybean oil, soy lecithin, natural vanilla, natural anatto and salt.
