“Otis Spunkmeyer cookies have been a consumer favorite for 35 years, but until recently have only been offered through our food service business,” said Kristina Dermody, president of Otis Spunkmeyer. “We are thrilled to now expand our offerings to grocery chains and also increase our line to include an array of 20 new treats so people can indulge in our favorite snacks whenever they want.”
