About Lenny & Larry's

Established in 1993, our mission has been to provide quality baked goods that not only taste great, but also contain protein and fiber.

It all started out with two gym rats who were tired of eating the same old choices to get their protein. Chicken breast after chicken breast, protein shake after protein shake... there had to be a better way to get more protein in your diet while enjoying something tasty. So these two gym rats thought of all the yummy things they craved, and decided, "Why can’t we add protein to them?"

And that's how Lenny and Larry's started. "We are always experimenting with new flavors and new ingredients but we promise to keep the same great taste. Baked Nutrition? Sounds good to us!"

Today Lenny & Larry's The Complete Cookie® forms the foundation of a whole new category of food: Baked Nutrition®. Vegan, Kosher, and Non-GMO – using only the finest ingredients – Lenny & Larry's The Complete Cookie® contains our secretly formulated blend of plant-based protein. No animal stuff in our cookies!

We are all about convenience so when you're on the go, take a cookie or two with you. Unlike most energy bars or protein shakes, our cookie actually tastes good! We have 15 exciting flavors to choose from and more on the way. And don't forget to check out our new Crunchy Cookies, The Muscle Brownie and The Muscle Muffin.

Food News: Homefree Nut-Free Cookies To Be Offered at Check-In by DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels


WINDHAM, N.H., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Homefree®, "treats you can trust," is pleased to announce that the DoubleTree by Hilton hotels are now offering Homefree® nut-free Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies at guest check-in as a nut-free alternative to their iconic Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The DoubleTree has long welcomed guests with its warm chocolate chip cookies. But these cookies include walnuts. By adding Homefree cookies, DoubleTree will allow guests with nut allergies to enjoy a delicious welcome treat, too.

Nut allergies can be unpredictable and life-threatening. According to the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), even small amounts of nuts can cause severe reactions.

The DoubleTree selected Homefree crunchy Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies as its alternate cookie because Homefree cookies taste great, and because Homefree is a leader in allergen-related safety and in food quality and safety more generally. Further, Homefree cookies go beyond including guests with nut allergies, by meeting the needs of guests with many other special diets as well.

All Homefree cookies are made in Homefree's dedicated facility free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, dairy, wheat and gluten, using carefully sourced and allergen tested ingredients. The cookies are vegan, kosher pareve, non-GMO verified, and contain nothing artificial. Homefree is certified by Safe Quality Food (SQF) level 3 for outstanding food quality and safety practices. Homefree is a certified Women Owned Business, and a certified B Corporation for a strong commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

Jill Robbins, founder and President of Homefree, and parent of a child with multiple food allergies, appreciates the importance of this progressive DoubleTree initiative: "When we decided to manufacture nut-free cookies, one of our goals was to make it easy for hotels to include guests with nut and other food allergies. My whole family can now enjoy a DoubleTree welcome treat! I feel truly appreciative to DoubleTree and the Hilton for making this a reality."

Homefree offers cookies in Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Lemon Burst, Chocolate Mint, Ginger Snap, and holiday Sugar cookies. Accolades include a prestigious foodservice Food & Beverage Product Innovations Award from the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, "Recommended School Snack" on the Today show, and "Best Gluten Free Cookies" by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. The cookies are distributed nationally to retail and foodservice establishments. Visit www.homefreetreats.com.

Snack Spotlight: The Oreo Wonder Vault Releases New Firework Oreo Cookies


For the First Time Ever, Fans Can Share Their Ideas for What the OREO Wonder Vault Should Create Next For a Chance to Win $500,000 and See Their OREO Creation Ideas on Shelves Nationwide

EAST HANOVER, NJ – May 8, 2017 – When it comes to OREO product innovation, the sky is the limit – literally! Introducing Firework OREO Cookies, the newest limited edition flavor from the OREO Wonder Vault, featuring popping candy creme, hits shelves nationwide starting today. With this unique OREO cookie flavor launch, the brand also invites fans further into the OREO Wonder Vault by kicking-off the #MyOreoCreation #Contest, a search for future OREO creations.  For the first-time ever, fans will submit their ideas for what the OREO Wonder Vault should create and release next for the chance to win a cash reward valued at $500,000, as well as unprecedented fan access to top-secret OREO creations.

The #MyOreoCreation #Contest leverages the unique equity the OREO Wonder Vault has built around innovation and, especially, deliciously unexpected flavors. Because whether it’s turning OREO cookies into Chocolate Candy Bars or capturing the flavor of a favorite treat in an OREO cookie, the OREO Wonder Vault is constantly dreaming up ways to surprise and delight fans. And now, fans can join in.

“Our newest limited edition flavor got us thinking – if we can create a Firework OREO cookie, what else could we create? And who better to ask than those who are already sharing their flavor and creation ideas,” said Madeline Vincent, Brand Manager, OREO. “We’ve always loved hearing and seeing our fans’ ideas and now we’re thrilled to merge that passion and creativity with OREO innovation to come up with future OREO Wonder Vault creations.”

Using the newest limited edition flavor as inspiration, fans are encouraged to get creative when it comes to dreaming up what could be an OREO creation. It could be a never-thought-possible-in-a-cookie flavor, or the combination of two flavors. It could even be an idea that’s not even a flavor (see Firework OREO cookies!).  Maybe it’s a flavor inspired by a favorite memory (what would that perfect day at the beach taste like?) or a place (how about the Rocky Mountains?). It could even be a favorite activity (like going to a carnival or camping).

Eligible fans who share their #MyOreoCreation #Contest ideas will be entered for a chance to be one of three Finalists who will win $25,000 each and see their idea on select retail shelves nationwide in May 2018, complete with an on-pack shout-out. The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen via fan vote in July 2018, and will win $500,000 and unprecedented fan access to OREO creations. As part of the never-been-done-before tasting experience the Grand Prize Winner will get the chance to taste unreleased OREO products, including both those with future launch dates as well as creations still in the prototype phase.

How to Enter*
U.S. fans can submit one unique submission per person per day on Instagram or Twitter by uploading a photo, video or just copy and including the hashtags #MyOreoCreation #Contest.

The three finalists will be chosen using the below criteria:

  • Taste Appeal (40%) – be delicious and/or evoke a feeling of joy/deliciousness.
  • Creativity (30%) – be a smart/creative design and have a relevant theme to inspire a 2018 OREO creation.
  • Originality (30%) – be unique and evoke a taste, feeling or remind you of an experience that would inspire an OREO cookie creation.

In the event of a tie, the submission with the highest “Taste Appeal” score will be deemed a Finalist. Fans can enter between now and July 14, 2017. Go here for the #MyOreoCreation #Contest Official Rules.

Looking for a little bit of creation inspiration to get started? In addition to Firework OREO Cookies, the OREO Wonder Vault is opening its doors to also release a video showing people letting their imaginations run wild as they dream up their own delicious OREO creations. Go here to watch.

Food Spotlight: In a World Filled With “Fake,” Voortman Bakery Introduces Real Cookies, With Real Ingredients, By Real Bakers


Formally Known as Voortman Cookies, the Popular Brand Reimagines Itself with a Fresh New Look, and Updated Flavors to Attract Cookie Lovers Around the World

BURLINGTON, Ontario, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The internationally renowned Voortman Bakery introduced today the total reimaging of their brand with a new name, all-new recipes and updated flavors, using only real ingredients.  The brand's new logo and packaging was updated to increase their presence on-shelf and excite consumers' taste buds across their entire cookie portfolio.  Voortman Bakery, sold in over 70 countries, is now offering an array of recipes and flavors that echo's consumers' desire for real snacks.  Voortman Bakery aims to connect with new consumers and disrupt the dynamics of the category by replacing artificial colors and flavors, as well as high-fructose corn syrups, with only real ingredients.

Voortman Bakery is dedicated to baking the very best quality cookies, using the finest, hand-selected ingredients such as real whole grain oats, almonds, coconut, blueberries, strawberries and other varieties of real fruits.  The brand's commitment to real ingredients, real bakers and really delicious cookies lead them to update their recipes and portfolio which are rolling out in supermarkets around the world in 2017.   Consumers can expect an extraordinary assortment of cookies on their local supermarket shelves, including Coconut, Oatmeal Raisin, Iced Almonette and new flavours like Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Lemon Coconut and Fudge Striped Almonette as well as signature wafer flavors such as vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and peanut butter.

The wafer category is a point of pride and differentiation for the brand.  In an attempt to own and elevate the wafer cookie in the U.S.A., Voortman Bakery is introducing an array of innovative and mouth-watering new flavors, such as blueberry, cinnamon and strawberry-banana.  An international favorite, Voortman Bakery is aiming to elevate the wafer category in North America.

Voortman Bakery has updated its packaging and brand logo to modernize and unify the product portfolio.  The company aims to highlight the deliciousness of their cookie recipes and put real ingredients front-and-center.  The original Voortman brand packaging was in need of an upgrade in order to resonate in today's cluttered cookie aisle.  Consumers can still find the "Dutch girl" on the logo, but like the rest of the brand, updated with a twist.  The brand is focused on being an innovator in the cookie category.

"We are excited to introduce the world to the new Voortman Bakery, using only real ingredients made by real bakers, that taste really delicious," said Douglas MacFarlane, CEO of Voortman Bakery.  "It is important to us as a brand to establish Voortman Bakery as an innovator with a cohesive brand look that captivates today's modern shopper and we're confident that the new packaging, new recipes and products will do just that."

Voortman Bakery was founded in 1951 by brothers William and Harry Voortman, who emigrated to Canada from their hometown of Hellendoorn, the Netherlands, in 1948 with their father, who had operated a bread bakery there.  Since its inception, the brand has been dedicated to making the very best quality cookies, using the finest, hand-selected ingredients.  In 2004, Voortman Bakery was the first North American food brand to announce the removal of trans fats from its retail food products.  Most recently, Voortman announced its new packaging, new logo and new recipes featuring real ingredients. In 2017, Voortman Bakery was awarded the Women's Choice Award® based on extraordinary recommendations from their female customers in a customer satisfaction survey conducted by WomenCertified Inc. using the company's customer database.  For more information about Voortman Bakery, go to: https://voortman.com/.

About Emmy's Organics

Emmy’s Organics, Inc. was started by couple, Ian & Samantha in 2009 in Ian’s mother’s home kitchen in Ithaca, NY. After struggling for many years with digestive problems, Ian had to change his lifestyle at a young age to avoid gluten, dairy and other irritants. His path led him to learn and work with raw, vegan foods in a number of restaurants and cafés. After meeting Samantha, the couple realized that they both shared a similar passion for health and well-being. Samantha grew up as a dancer and a self-proclaimed “health nut.” One night, Ian taught Samantha a coconut cookie recipe that he had developed many years prior. Seeing how clean the ingredients were and how easy the recipe was to make, a little idea was sparked that is now Emmy’s.

Ian and Samantha started small, selling their goods at the Ithaca Farmer’s Market and Greenstar Co-op. People really took to the coconut cookies and more people started buying them. A trip to NYC and other regional stores invited more retailers onboard. Today, Emmy’s products can be found in thousands of retail locations nationwide and soon, other countries!

Emmy’s is a home grown, family-oriented company, committed to spreading the good word about healthy snacking as well as social and environmental responsibility. Emmy’s B Corp Certification also shows the company’s strong passion for using business as a force for good. Examples of this can be seen in the organic and non-GMO ingredients Emmy’s sources, the way they give back to their community and other causes and the way they treat all people involved with their business. Emmy’s products are made in a wind and solar powered building and much attention is placed on reducing their carbon footprint.
