Start the New Year Right With Otis Spunkmeyer® Fundraising Cookie Dough—Made With Real Ingredients

San Leandro, California (EastBayDaily) — The new year is all about starting fresh and setting smarter goals, and Otis Spunkmeyer® Fundraising helps individuals and organizations raise more money by offering cookie dough made with real ingredients that everyone can feel good about, no matter the resolution.

Best-selling Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough and baked goods are made from the very finest ingredients including: premium Hard Red Winter Wheat cookie flour, fresh whole eggs, Barry Callebaut® premium chocolate, California raisins, proprietary Madagascar Vanilla flavor, real Grade A butter blend and more. All of these ingredients come together to create the cookies and baked goods people ask for by name.

"Some brands incorporate substitutes, but at Otis Spunkmeyer, we choose to use real ingredients and that sets us apart from other fundraising programs," said Jennifer Vierra, business development associate for Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraising. "People are willing to pay more for baked goods with simple ingredients that support their healthier living goals, so sponsors can get more from their fundraisers, which is always at the heart of our mission."

The foundation of all cookies is flour. Otis uses Hard Red Winter Wheat cookie Flour, which is the highest quality cookie flour in the industry. This flour impacts the spread and thickness of the cookie, and provides the structural texture that gives Otis cookies that soft-and-chewy bite and thick shoulders. Otis even offers a whole grain flour cookie option with the Reduced Fat Chocolate Chip cookie dough.

In addition, eggs are the natural binding agents that give fresh-baked goods the soft, chewy quality everyone loves. Some cookie dough contains egg substitutes, but Otis does not settle for anything other than whole, fresh eggs. Even in all of the fundraising baked goods such as the Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake with chunks of tart real Granny Smith apples, Otis always uses fresh eggs.

To top it all off, Otis cookies have a high inclusion rate, which means the perfect amount of quality chocolate chips, raisins, fruit and nuts in every bite. For example, the Otis Oatmeal Raisin cookie dough includes a balanced ratio of plump California raisins and real rolled oats. All of the chocolate chips in Otis cookies are made from the same high-quality Barry Callebaut brand chocolate that is used in fine restaurants and pastry shops.
