Several years ago, Sunbelt Bakery® offered an Oatmeal Raisin variety. When it was discontinued, consumers relentlessly reached out through social media and our consumer care line asking McKee Foods to make their favorite flavor again. This granola bar treat features plump, sun-dried raisins and chewy oats that brand lovers rave about! These individually-wrapped bars are a convenient snack for on-the-go or snacking at home with your family.
Consumers will be able to easily spot the purple cartons with the iconic Sunbelt Bakery orange circle brand logo at the top on retail store shelves and displays. Each box is 8.27 oz with eight individually wrapped bars inside. The suggested retail price is $2.79.
"Nothing complements a snack craving like a Sunbelt Bakery granola bar! We are known for offering a unique range of flavor options for consumers, and bringing back classic oatmeal raisin was a no-brainer as we listened to our fans' requests," said Tara Wiese, Sunbelt Bakery brand manager. "Plump, sun-dried raisins pack extra chewy taste into this yummy new granola bar!"
