Hostess is releasing caffeinated donuts that will turbocharge your day
Hostess is rolling out a new product that could give you a caffeine kick without the coffee.
The snack cake brand announced on Tuesday that it is expanding its donut lineup with the launch of Hostess Boost Jumbo Donettes. Three times bigger than the original Hostess Donettes mini donuts, Hostess Boost Jumbo Donettes are caffeinated with coffee bean extract and are lightly glazed.
A perfect pick-me-up throughout the day, these caffeinated donuts come in two decadent flavors: Chocolate Mocha and Caramel Macchiato. The Chocolate Mocha variety combines the rich flavors of chocolate and espresso coffee, while the Caramel Macchiato variety fuses creamy caramel and espresso coffee flavors that perfectly blend for a smooth, premium taste.
Both varieties come in a 2.5-ounce single-serve package, each containing slightly less caffeine (50-70 milligrams) than one cup of coffee, giving you a tasty boost of energy to keep you going through the day.
“For adults who are increasingly looking for alternative sources of caffeine, our new Hostess Boost Jumbo Donettes offer a tasty, energy-boosting, grab-and-go way to jumpstart the day,” said Christopher Balach, general manager of Hostess Brands, LLC, in a press release.
Priced at $2.49 each, Hostess Boost Jumbo Donettes are starting to roll out this month at convenience stores nationwide.
The launch of Hostess Boost Jumbo Donettes follows the release of the brand’s three new breakfast items last year: the Hostess Muff’n Stix (available in blueberry and chocolate chip flavors), Hostess Pecan Spins (crunchy pecans-topped sweet cinnamon roll topped with crunchy pecans), and the Hostess Baby Bundts (available in cinnamon swirl and lemon drizzle flavors).
