ZonePerfect Cookie Dough Bars
Abbott Nutrition, Columbus, Ohio
Abbott Nutrition has added a full line of cookie dough-inspired nutrition bars to its ZonePerfect Cookie Dough Bars product lineup; the collection will include three flavors with a soft cookie dough texture: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Raisin. Each bar is an excellent source of protein (10 gm.) and a good source of 17 vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants (Vitamins C & E and Selenium). Abbott is supporting the launch through a month of “Cookie Doughlicious Surprises” on Facebook (www.facebook.com/zoneperfect), where fans can win a new surprising prize each week, including samples, music downloads and more. The company also is sampling the bars at art walks in select cities throughout October.
