Dallas-based cake chain Nothing Bundt Cakes is teaming up once again with a classic candy brand to relaunch the Andes Peppermint Chocolate Chip treat.
Available nationwide from December 4 through December 31, the holiday treat features a “decadent” chocolate cake with peppermint flavor and chocolate chips.
“Our Andes Peppermint Chocolate Chip cake strikes the perfect balance between indulgent, rich chocolate and the classic taste of Andes peppermint pieces,” Claire Jessen, senior director of culinary innovation at Nothing Bundt Cakes, said in a news release.
“This flavor has been a holiday favorite of our guests for years, and our partnership with Andes takes it to the next level,” Jessen added.
Andes Peppermint Chocolate Chip cakes will be sold in several sizes, including bite-sized Bundtinis®, personal-sized Bundtlets, and 8- and 10-inch Bundt Cakes.
To sweeten the holiday experience, Nothing Bundt Cakes has also unveiled Holiday Gnomes Bundtinis® — a dozen mini bundt cakes in a variety of flavors complete with the company’s signature cream cheese frosting and gnome regalia.
Founded in 1997 in Dallas, Nothing Bundt Cakes has grown to operate more than 535 franchise and corporate stores in more than 40 states and Canada, according to the release.
Andes was founded in Chicago by Andrew Kanelos in 1920 when the brand was called “Andy’s Candies,” according to the Candy Retailer Blog. The name did not become Andes until 30 years later. Today, the candy is manufactured by Tootsie Roll Industries, which considers the Andes peppermint candy “America’s favorite after-dinner mint.” Tootsie Roll Industries also owns Andes Baking Chips and Andes Snap Bars.
