Otis Spunkmeyer® Fundraising re-introduces its wholesome Reduced Fat Chocolate Chip cookie dough, now made with more whole grain flour and a sweeter flavor to meet new school nutritional guidelines.
This new cookie dough recipe features decadent Barry Callebaut® chocolate chips folded into dough made with whole wheat flour for a cookie that’s not just good, it’s whole grain good. Offering a guilt-free cookie selection to your friends and family makes maximizing fundraising profits simple.
“Everyone adores freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and we’re thrilled to have a better-for-you chocolate chip cookie dough option in our fundraising lineup,” says Liz Rayo, director of business development for Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraising. “We decided it was time to give this classic cookie dough a delicious and nutritious makeover. After some work in our kitchen and lots of tasting, we uncovered the perfect whole grain formula that not only meets new USDA school nutritional requirements but tastes great too.”
Sponsors can promote this new cookie effortlessly by citing the surprising nutrition facts. Each Reduced Fat Chocolate Chip cookie has less than 30 percent calories from fat, less than 10 percent calories from saturated fat and less than 30 percent sugar. And like all Otis Spunkmeyer baked goods, this cookie dough contains zero grams of trans fat per serving with no added preservatives and no partially hydrogenated oils.
The pre-portioned frozen cookie dough also offers an unparalleled convenience—no thawing, scooping or mixing required. Use what is needed from the festive 2.5 pound container and the remaining cookie dough can be kept freezer fresh in resealable packaging for up to one year. At $16 per container, these health-conscious cookies earn more than $6 for the sponsoring school or fundraising group.
