“This article applies to Chrome for Mobile.

For those who’s still looking for an answer here is an instruction for an iPhone:

You can’t see cookie data on the phone itself, but if you activate
Settings > Safari > Advanced > Web Inspector you can connect the
iPhone to an Apple computer with a cable and open Safari. Activate the
Develop menu in Preferences > Advanced > Show Develop menu in menu bar

Now you can open a page on the iPhone and then select Develop >
your_phone > the_page on the computer to see an inspector for the page
on the phone. The second icon at the top is for storage and will show
cookies for the page you show on the phone.

If you are still looking, I made a Firefox extension called Cookie-Editor that also works on Android phones. It is similar to EditThisCookie.

It lets you create, edit and delete your cookies as well as importing or exporting them.

You can find it here: https://cookie-editor.cgagnier.ca or directly on the firefox store here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookie-editor/
