DENVER — Suncore Products, L.L.C. has entered the cookie aisle with the introduction of WhoNu? nutrition-rich cookies. Each three-cookie serving has 3 grams of fiber and 20% or more of the daily allowance of calcium, vitamin D, vitamin C, iron, vitamin E, vitamin B12 and vitamin A.
“Children are snacking more than ever and they’re snacking on nutrient-deficient foods with empty calories,” said Mike Bloom, vice-president of marketing for Suncore Products, L.L.C. “In fact, cookies remain the No. 1 snack item for kids ages 5 through 12, contributing to the more than $5 billion spent on prepackaged cookies each year in the U.S. 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.”
Suncore said that while each serving of WhoNu? cookies “is packed with nutrition levels that rival some of the healthiest foods,” they are not intended to replace vitamins, supplements or other healthy eating habits, but are instead “simply a better option when choosing cookies as a treat.”
WhoNu? cookies are available in four flavors: Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip, Crispy Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Sandwich Creme and Vanilla Sandwich Creme. Beginning in July, WhoNu? cookie varieties will be available at major retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The suggested retail price is $2.99 to $3.49, but it may vary by retailer.
