The world’s largest fortune-cookie manufacturer has cut out the romance, removing loving messages after complaints from parents.
“Some parents sent us e-mails. They said they didn’t want their kids reading them,” Derrick Wong, a vice president at Wonton Food, which is based in New York’s Brooklyn borough, told the New York Post. “Different people have a different perspective.”
“One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes,” “Romance and travel go together,” “The evening promises romantic interest” and “A romantic mystery will soon add interest to your life” are among some of the messages the company has chosen to remove, according to The Post.
Mr. Zeng said that if he gets more than two or three complaints about a fortune, he’ll screen it out, The Post reports.
“We want to put messages inside our cookies that don’t upset a single person. We don’t want customers to have negative feelings,” he added
