So if you wanted to set one cookie to hold all of your items, you should be
able to setcookie("items[]", item1), setcookie("items[]", item2), etc up to
itemN. Then you can access the items as an array in a PHP script. I'm pretty
sure that handling your list of items in this manner would allow you to
store a large number of items in the same cookie without setting additional
cookies and running into the upper limit of 20.

IIRC there is a browser-set limit to the size of a given cookie, around 4k. That's pretty big, but there is a limit and it may vary by browser, so it's to your advantage to keep it short.
