Is Cafe Amazon (Thailand's) New Amazon Fortune Cookie Coffee Any Good? REVIEW
I know… Chinese New Year is long past, but it’s never too late to review Cafe Amazon’s new special Chinese New Year coffee drinks. The drinks are limited time only, but are still available for a few more weeks.
Cafe Amazon is offering two new drinks as part of a special Chinese New Year promotion. The one that caught my eye the most, however, was the “Amazon Fortune Cookie”. I was espacially interested in trying this one, since fortune cookies aren’t actually Chinese, nor are they at all popular or familiar in Thailand!
I’m a fan of Cafe Amazon, especially when I’m on a road trip in Thailand (generally, Cafe Amazon is one of the standard and ubiquitous shops at nearly every Thai rest stop). Their drinks tend to be a bit on the pricy side for Thailand, though, and this Amazon Fortune Cookie is no exception. The drink costs a relatively steep 75 baht. I ordered one anyway, since I actually really like fortune cookies, and the idea of this coffee caught my attention.
The Amazon Fortune Cookie is a blended iced coffee drink with a slight sweet hazelnut flavor, and topped with cruncy biscuit pieces which resemble the taste of an American-Chinese fortune cookie.
I really like this drink, although it was quite sweet. In fact, I already requested to make the drink slightly less sweet, so I imagine that the original order would be very sweet. That may just be me, though, as I generally don’t take my coffee overly sugary.
I do like the flavor. I think that the flavors (hazelnut? caramel? honey?) blend really nicely together, and the crunchy biscuit pieces on top really do tie it all together.
All in all, I do like this drink. I would get it again, maybe if it’s an offering again next time Chinese New Year rolls around. Maybe this week I’ll try Cafe Amazon’s other special promotion drink.
Try the Amazon Fortune Cookie at Cafe Amazon locations in Thailand now while the promotion is still running!
