The new treat features soft, chewy cookies baked with a mixture of cinnamon sugar crystals. The cookies are sandwiched around vanilla-flavored cream.
With eight individually wrapped sandwich cookies per carton, the soft, cream-filled cookies have a suggested retail price of $2.59.
“For the packaging, we wanted our cinnamon and sugar mascots to encourage smiles with their cheerful expressions,” said Jill Sito, creative services manager at McKee Foods. “The nostalgic look of these characters has broad appeal, while the bold teal color of the carton enhances the appetizing product shot and makes the carton easy to spot on shelves.”
