Subverting the traditions of the words of wisdom hidden inside fortune cookies are the Fortune Cookie Flows, that creatively exchange insightful proverbs for rap song lyrics. The fortune cookies retain the same aesthetic and shape as the customary version, except that inside the fortunes are replaced with r&b lyrics.

The cookies are sold in packs of 50, containing a mixture of different fortunes containing lyrics selected from popular rap artists such as Lil Wayne, Tupac and Kayne. The treats cleverly subvert the expectation of the eater, who might open the cookie expending a fortune. Instead the fortunes contain such words of wisdom as, "Real Gs move in silence like lasagna" as Lil Wayne says.

Companies such as Fortune Cookie Flows showcase how a traditional and popularized ritual product such as a fortune cookie can be slightly tweaked in its offerings to suit current millennial demographics.
