Otis Spunkmeyer Honored with National Parenting Product Awards for Iconic Chocolate Chunk Cookie and Iced Lemon Loaf Cake

, 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
  • 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
