Get the cookie value, and print it out. It will print chocolate chips below because we set it in the above code. If the cookie name doesn’t exist, it will return false, otherwise it returns the cookie value.

$cookieValue = Mage::getModel('core/cookie')->get('sweetcookie');

Get all cookies, they will be return in an array.

$cookies = Mage::getModel('core/cookie')->get();

Delete a cookie. The code below will delete the cookie sweetcookie. Another way to delete the cookie is to set the time of the cookie in the past, or 1 second from now. The code will be exactly the same as setting the cookie, except the third parameter for the time period.
