COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — McKee Foods, manufacturer of Little Debbie snack cakes, launched a limited-edition extension to its Little Debbie Mini Donut line this month. Cinnamon Spiced Hot Chocolate Mini Donuts feature hot chocolate-flavored cake doughnuts rolled in a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon spices.
In keeping with the character of the Little Debbie brand, the Cinnamon Spiced Hot Chocolate Mini Donuts are packaged in bright blue resealable bags that feature seasonal creatures frolicking in a winter wonderland. The doughnuts are available in 7.74-ounce packages and have a suggested retail price of $2.19. They will be on store shelves from December through late February.
“The chocolate and cinnamon is a wonderful flavor combination, reminiscent of steaming mugs of hot chocolate with cinnamon sticks,” said Erica Harrison, Little Debbie product manager. “They bring a little bit of comfort to cold winter days.”
McKee Foods is a family bakery with annual sales of about $1.4 billion and a privately held company based in Collegedale, Tenn.
