Venice, FL (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
On Monday, May 19th, Omega3 Innovations welcomes a new flavor to its gluten-free, omega-3 product line - the Piña Colada Omega Cookie®.
Chosen by popular vote, the Piña Colada Omega Cookie competed against rival Berry Blast Omega Cookie for selection as the biotech company’s newest limited edition flavor. After a three week voting period, the Piña Colada flavor narrowly trumped the Berry Blast option. With consumers voting on the company’s blog, at the Sarasota Farmers Market and through the front door, the Piña Colada captured 55 percent of the vote.
“We were excited to have customers participate in the flavor selection process,” said Carol Urofsky, leader of the Omega3 Innovations bakery. “We want to satisfy our customers’ taste buds, and this ‘cookie contest’ was a great way to engage with them.”
Baked with the summer season in mind, the Piña Colada Omega Cookie features a tropical blend of pineapple chunks and toasted coconut. As with all Omega Cookie flavors, each cookie contains 2000 mg of EPA/DHA omega-3, in addition to five grams of gluten-free soluble oat fiber, 800 IUs of vitamin D, and calcium.
“We want to make taking omega-3 a fun and delicious experience,” said Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD, Omega3 Innovations’ co-founder and president. “What’s exciting with our Omega Cookie is that it not only provides a clinically effective dose of omega-3 cod liver oil, but it also allows us to create tasty flavor combinations the whole family can enjoy.”
As a limited edition flavor, the Piña Colada cookie will only be available while supplies last.
“Looking at the solid performance of our past limited edition items, these cookies will sell quickly,” said Urofsky. “Since the public has helped select this new flavor, we have great expectations for the Piña Colada Omega Cookie.”
