Bimbo Bakeries USA-owned Entenmann’s brand has added chocolate party cakes to its Little Bites’ line as a new “seasonal favorites” product, the company announced in a statement.

The new on-the-go product is made with rainbow-colored sprinkles, similar to the original golden Little Bites Party Cakes, said Bimbo Bakeries. It uses real cocoa, and like all Little Bites products, contains no high fructose corn syrup and is Kosher-certified.

“With the new Little Bites Chocolate Party Cakes, we are happy to satisfy the cravings of chocolate lovers everywhere,” she said.

Bremer has previously worked for several food giants, including General Mills, Kraft Foods, The Hain Celestial Group, according to her LinkedIn account.
