Final Design

Circa 2009-2010

2005 Tagline: With the frenzy of fan mail we received when we introduced Oatmeal Cookie Chunk as a for-a-limited-time-only flavor in 2003, we couldn't possibly banish it to the flavor graveyard forever. With pleas from folks like you, we had to bring it back as a full-time flavor!

2003/2004 Tagline: To us, there's nothing more familiar or comforting than just-out-of-the-oven cookies. We created this flavor to celebrate the humble oatmeal cookie, & because we love chocolate, we threw in lots of fudge chunks in lieu of raisins.
