Since creating the Quaker Oat Cake recipe more than 100 years ago, Quaker Oats have long been a key ingredient of oatmeal cookies baked in kitchens across the country. Inspired by the goodness of whole grain oats for more than 130 years, The Quaker Oats Company, a division of PepsiCo, is introducing a new line of packaged Quaker Oatmeal Cookies that feature whole grain oats as a staple ingredient. With real pieces of dried fruit and crunchy nuts, new Quaker Oatmeal Cookies are available in two varieties and seven flavorful creations, to satisfy every cookie
"Creating this line of cookies has been a long time coming for us at Quaker and is a great addition to our portfolio that's already full of delicious foods made with whole grain oats," says Alberto Fernandez, vp of Quaker Foods & Snacks North America. "We're excited about these cookies because they combine the goodness of whole grains with real fruits like dried cranberry and banana, sweet chunks of chocolate and hearty nuts. We've worked long and hard to ensure there is really something for everyone."
Quaker Oatmeal Cookies come in Soft Baked and Crunchy Oat Granola varieties at a suggested retail price of $2.69 per package. With individually wrapped packets in each box, these cookies are great at home or on-the-go.
