Leading convenience store retailer enters the dessert/sweet snack product category
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunt Brothers® Pizza, the leading pizza brand in the convenience store industry, recently announced the addition of its newest product: MEGA S'mores. As a new take on a traditional favorite campfire treat, Hunt Brothers Pizza has created an easy to bake, easy to take version for the on-the-go convenience store shopper.
MEGA S'mores features:
- A giant, soft graham cracker crust
- Gooey Hershey's® real milk chocolate
- Melted marshmallows
"We are excited to team up with a favorite brand like Hershey's to create our new MEGA S'mores," said Keith Solsvig, vice president of marketing for Hunt Brothers Pizza. "S'mores are a special treat that evoke good, positive memories for lots of people. We are excited that MEGA S'mores bring that same flavor and experience to consumers in a convenient, tasty way just by visiting their local convenience store."
This new freshly baked sweet treat helps Hunt Brothers Pizza retailers build out a more robust program and serves as a perfect complement to the savory selection of pizza, Wings and WingBites®, and Cheesebread. Compared to packaged sweet snacks, MEGA S'mores provides c-store retailers with a fresher product offering and better profit margin, helping them capitalize on consumers looking for a sweet snack or dessert baked fresh in the store.
"I often hear from my customers that MEGA S'mores is probably one of the best things they've ever had," said Catherine Price, a Hunt Brothers Pizza retailer at the Hemphill Fuel Stop in Hemphill, Texas.
MEGA S'mores are available at participating Hunt Brothers Pizza retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $1.59.
