DENVER, Colo. — Suncore Products said that its new cookie brand touts 20 essential vitamins and minerals, as well as dietary fiber.
WhoNu? cookies, which are available in soft and chewy chocolate chip, crispy chocolate chip, chocolate sandwich creme and vanilla sandwich creme varieties, claim to deliver 3 g of fiber and 20% or more of the daily allowance of calcium; vitamins A, B12, C, D and E; and iron in each three-cookie serving.
"Children are snacking more than ever and they're snacking on nutrient-deficient foods with empty calories," Suncore Products VP marketing Mike Bloom said. "In fact, cookies remain the No. 1 snack item for kids ages 5 through 12 years, contributing to the more than $5 billion spent on prepackaged cookies each year in the [United States]. WhoNu? brand cookies provide an alternative to other indulgent, nutrition-poor treats on the market, offering kids a great-tasting way to fuel development and supplement other healthy eating habits."
WhoNu? cookies will be available at major retailers in July for a suggested retail price range of $2.99 to $3.49.
