“This innovative product is the result of close collaboration and tireless work by both businesses to ensure that we continue to drive incremental growth and excitement in the biscuit category.”
Michelle Frost, general manager at MCDT said: “We are really excited to be introducing this iconic brand into the biscuit aisle for the first time. We believe that a combination of the innovative format, unique malty taste and brand strength will drive new consumers to the category in addition to providing something new and exciting for regular biscuit snackers.”
