I'm trying to create a shopping cart whereby a user can add products with information associated, to a cookie.

each time the user adds a new product, the array should incremement.

Product data includes:
strName, strColor, strQty

Code attached doesn't work. Thoughts
$cart = $_COOKIE["cart"];
 
$aOrder = array(
"strName"=>$strName,
"strColor"=>$strColor,
"nQty"=>$nQty);
 
$cart[] = $aOrder;
setcookie("cart",$cart,time()+3600,"/");
