"We are bakers at our core, but food innovators at heart," says Bruce Kratt, president. "Applying nearly 75 years of bakery experience, we developed what is ultimately a trend-setting snack concept. The Middles themselves are exceptional, but so too is the packaging, and the way we're bringing them to market with character animations and a true sense of personality. It's fun, it's different and we believe Middles will be a remarkable snacking experience for consumers of all ages to enjoy."
Middles can be found in the freezer section at grocery, club, supermarket and convenience stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 per 10.8-ounce box of eight bread bites.
