LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Otis Spunkmeyer, a pioneer in the fresh-baked cookie business since the 1970’s, has received two awards from the prestigious National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA). The NAPPA Awards are one of the most respected programs in the country, testing hundreds of foods and other products, across numerous categories. Winners of the award – like the Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chunk Cookie and the Otis Spunkmeyer Iced Lemon Loaf Cake – were carefully evaluated and tested by a panel of industry experts and family testers.
“We’re so excited to have won this award as it's parent and kid tested, and approved!” said Charice Grace, Brand Manager of Otis Spunkmeyer. “Our delicious sweets are made with No Funky Stuff – meaning we are free from artificial colors, flavors, and ensure our recipes taste as home-made as possible, while still being a convenient option in the snack aisle.”
The Otis Spunkmeyer retail line has 20 individually wrapped tasty treats to choose from including snack cakes, loaf cakes and cookies. Information on the winning foods include:
- Chocolate Chunk Cookie: The signature Chocolate Chunk Cookie got a makeover last year and joined the new “No Funky Stuff” retail line. Featuring molasses and dark Swiss chocolate chunks, these cookies taste as close to homemade as you can find at the grocery store. SRP $3.49-4.49
- Iced Lemon Loaf Cake: This delicious cake is sweet and refreshing — and a best seller! Topped with tangy lemon flavored icing and made with real ingredients for a truly homemade taste. SRP $3.49-4.49.
“This Chocolate Chunk Cookie tastes like a cookie I’d share with my child. So often packaged sweets have additives that make it taste fake. Our product testers found this tastes homemade,” says NAPPA Project Manager, Carolyn Richardson. “Families respect the NAPPA seal because they know we will give them honest feedback from both parents and experts about things they will see in the aisle at the grocery store.”
Otis Spunkmeyer is available at grocery stores nationwide including Walmart, and sold online via Amazon Fresh. To learn more about Otis Spunkmeyer follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and visit www.otisspunkmeyer.com.
