May 2, 2011
NORWALK, CONN., May 2, 2011 – Since its creation nearly sixty years ago, the classic Milano cookie has been a favorite among cookie aficionados worldwide. Thanks to a luscious variety of fillings sandwiched between two crisp, golden cookies, Pepperidge Farm Milano® cookies have become the perfect treat for anyone looking to steal away for a moment of sweet satisfaction.
“Since their debut in the 1950s, Milano cookies have undergone a series of flavor evolutions, as we’ve delicately partnered the classic cookie-and-chocolate foundation with flavors such as mint, orange, raspberry and, most recently, strawberry, to create an assortment of tempting varieties,” said Suzanne Goodrich, Business Director at Pepperidge Farm. “This evolution continues with new Milano Melts™ cookies – a fun twist on the cookie-and-chocolate combination that will leave cookie lovers melting with each bite.”
Featuring a unique combination of crisp cookie filled with soft, velvety rich chocolate crème, new Pepperidge Farm Milano Melts cookies offer the same delectable Milano cookie satisfaction with a brand new sweet escape experience. Whether indulging in the Dark Classic Crème – a golden cookie with a rich, chocolate heart – or Chocolate Dark Classic Crème, which features a decadent chocolate cookie exterior, cookie enthusiasts are sure to feel their worries melt away with each bite of these rich, dual-textured treats.
