Hostess launches jumbo-sized Donettes
Hostess is putting a bit of a spin on its classic Donettes snacks.
The Kansas City, Mo.-based company announced the launch of its new Jumbo Donettes, which come in two flavors, glazed and chocolate iced with sprinkles.
Jumbo Donettes come in newly redesigned packaging that was designed to maintain fresh portability. It has each of the sweet treats individually wrapped in a resealable tub for an extra layer of freshness and easy storage, the company said.
Included on each of the snack’s packaging are such clever, eye-catching phrases as “This one’s mine (sorry not sorry),” “Donuts: made round, so you can start anywhere” and “If loving donuts is wrong. I don’t want to be right.”
“Hostess is bringing freshness — both literally and figuratively — to the packaged donut category with its innovative design for Jumbo Donettes,” Becky Logan, Hostess Brands’ brand director for breakfast, said. “Whether they’re enjoyed for a snack, dessert, or breakfast, consumers will benefit from the modern packaging that appeals to all senses, including one’s sense of humor.”
Hostess’ latest innovation is now available for purchase on store shelves nationwide. Further information on the product can be found on the company’s website or social media channels.
