    You can't physically remove the cookie - but you can set the cookie's expire date :) I would say - instead of using cookies, use sessions (which just store a session id in a cookie, not data in the cookie) - then you can flush this data anytime you want and it doesn't matter if the cookie still exists - it just has your session id.

    You can set the expire date to a few hours ago so it will become expired.

    Using expires property you can remove the cookies
    example
    myCookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(1);

    You can also set a new empty cookie with same name to the response.

    Be advised that, in some cases, expiring the cookie doesn't seem to work. This is because browsers like Chrome allow the browser to start up where it left off. And that means that any cookies that were active in the last session will still be active. This bit me a couple of times.
