OKLAHOMA CITY - September 17, 2012 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - In celebration of the 100th birthday of the world’s favorite cookie, OREO®, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt is proud to announce its newest flavor, Cookie Cake Featuring OREO.
This delicious new flavor was created specially to commemorate the milestone birthday and features a tasty blend of crushed OREO cookies and Orange Leaf’s popular flavors, Birthday Cake and Cookies and Cream. Cookie Cake will be available in participating locations nationwide beginning Monday, Sept. 17. As well, in accordance with the company’s highly customizable dessert experience, OREO cookies continue to be featured as a popular topping at Orange Leaf stores for customers who want to explore other ways to incorporate the OREO flavor into their froyo experience.
“Orange Leaf is proud to have developed its newest flavor in honor of the 100th birthday of OREO,” said Reese Travis, Orange Leaf CEO. “We’ve taken the tradition of dunking your OREO cookie into milk to a whole new level by mixing it directly into our froyo.”
