Sara Lee desserts add twist to traditional holiday treats
Sara Lee is looking to make the holiday season a little sweeter.
The Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.-based company, known for its frozen bakery and desserts, unveiled three new innovations to its portfolio.
For a limited time, shoppers can pick up:
- New York Style Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake, which contains a graham cracker crust, pumpkin, cream cheese and a blend of cinnamon and spices;
- New York Style Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake, which features a chocolate cookie crust, peppermint, cream cheese and is topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips; and
- Triple Chocolate Pound Cake, which is made with such ingredients as butter, cocoa and chocolate chips. It also has a fresh basked taste and does not contain artificial flavors, colors or high fructose corn syrup.
“For our new limited edition cheesecakes, we took a close look at consumer trends, which is why we specifically chose flavors like pumpkin spice and peppermint,” Ryan Malone, chief marketing officer said. “With the holiday season approaching, our consumers are looking for indulgent treats they can both enjoy at home on a busy weeknight or bring to a holiday potluck with friends.”
Both the limited time offer New York Style Cheesecakes will be available for purchase through January 2020.
“Sara Lee Desserts has connected many generations with its quality products, and we’re excited to be launching our newest offerings this holiday season,” Mike Mitchell, senior brand manager said. “For years, Sara Lee has created delicious homemade desserts using real ingredients and we’re thrilled to continue our mission of creating the sweet taste of new traditions.”
