The Keebler Magical Cookie Bouquets come in an arrangement of «long stem Keebler Fudge Stripe™ cookie flowers» – complete with a spice drop center. Loved ones who receive the Keebler Magical Cookie Bouquet will also get to try a few of their favorite Keebler cookies, featuring more of Keebler’s Elfin’ Magic from the Hollow Tree and baked with a variety of real ingredients.  In addition to the Fudge Stripes, made with Real Keebler Fudge, recipients will also receive Pecan Sandies™ and Chips Deluxe® Original, which are made with Real Madagascar vanilla and more Real Chocolate, respectively.

The Keebler Magical Cookie Bouquets are meant to celebrate the moments of togetherness that Keebler creates for modern families and highlight the magic & real ingredient inclusion that Ernie and the Keebler elves craft into each cookie.
