Inspired by her city’s famous landmarks and tales of the treats her great-grandmother enjoyed there when she was a child, Sarah has developed a range of ‘Corkies’ that will deliver a rich and comforting taste of home Christmas.
Hadji Bey Rose Cookies
Over a century since establishing a shop on MacCurtain Street, Sarah’s senses have been stimulated by fragrant cubes of Hadji Bey’s delectably exotic Turkish delight, so much so that she has decided to create an homage to it. Her Hadji Bey bakes consist of a rose scented and cardamom spiced cookie, studded with chunks of the traditional Cork confectionery – a flavour combination that will captivate your taste buds.
Barry’s Tea Shortbread
When it comes to Cork, there is nothing more iconic than the much-loved Barry’s Tea. Sarah has captured the essence of one of the nation’s favourite brews in a decadent Barry’s Tea infused all butter shortbread that makes for an ideal elevenses.
Good Fortune Cookies’ originality and creativity knows no bounds. Sarah has also captured the roasted nutty toffee sweetness and dark chocolate notes of the most flavoursome of Irish stouts, Beamish, in a cookie that combines Cork’s famous creamy full-bodied pint with premium Valrhona cocoa powder – a perfect marriage of flavours!
The entire Good Fortune range, which, in addition to the Christmas Selection and Signature Corkies, also includes Sarah’s addictive White Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, and White Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies, can be mixed and matched however you, or they, like.
Each flavour comes in a pack containing five freshly baked cookies, with one-off purchase Christmas Gift Boxes containing your preferred three flavour (x15 cookies in total – €25.00 + €5.00 for nationwide delivery) or six flavour (x30 cookies in total – €50.00 + €5.00 for nationwide delivery) combinations available to choose from.
To ensure delivery of your cookies in time for Christmas, please pre-order online via Good Fortune’s website, www.good-fortune.ie, before 16th December 2022. Christmas Gift orders will be dispatched between the 19th and 20th December 2022.
Once opened, Good Fortune Cookies will keep for up to 5 days as long as they are stored in an air-tight container. Please note that all of Good Fortune’s Cookies contain gluten and aren’t suitable for vegans.
Commenting on her excitement at the nationwide launch and her new ‘Corkies’ range, Founder of Good Fortune Cookies, Sarah Cremin, said: “Expanding outside of Cork has been a real milestone for us and what better way to celebrate our nationwide delivery than with some iconic Cork flavours from three brands that have truly stood the test of time. The Hadji Bey shortbread is a really nostalgic one for me as it pays tribute to my great-grandmother, Priscilla, who adored their decadent Turkish delight. From the good old reliable chocolate chip to spiced oat & pecan, we have something for every cookie lover, and we’re really looking forward to spreading some joy this festive season.”
