TORONTO, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - You don't need to wait for the carnival to enjoy delicious old-fashioned funnel cake. Pizza Pizza, Canada's leading pizza chain, has added Funnel Cake Stix to its menu, an easy-to-eat take on one of Canada's favourite treats.
The new confection consists of light and fluffy strips of funnel cake covered in sugar and cinnamon, in a box for just $5.99. The introduction of the sweet treat is part of Pizza Pizza's ongoing effort to expand its dessert offering.
"Lots of people look for a savoury treat after their pizza and we thought this was the perfect fit; fun, flavourful and easy to share with a group," said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza. "Our Funnel Cake Stix are a new spin on a classic favourite that had our product developers feeling nostalgic. We all have fond memories of going to a carnival as a child and indulging in some funnel cake after a long day of fun."
Funnel Cake Stix are available starting today at all traditional Pizza Pizza locations in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia.
