Morinaga Collaborates With Dana’s Bakery On Hi-Chew Inspired ‘Mookie’


Irvine, CA — Morinaga America, Inc. has collaborated with Dana’s Bakery, a New York-based bakery specializing in French macarons, to create the Hi-Chew Juicy Blood Orange Cranberry Mookie.

Inspired by Hi-Chew Juicy Blood Orange, which debuted in the Infrusions Orchard Mix earlier this year, the product packs in five-ct boxes with an SRP of $28 per box.

“Hi-Chew is always looking for unique collaborations that bring vibrant, fruit-forward flavors to life in a unique and exciting way,” says Teruhiro “Terry” Kawabe, president and CEO of Morinaga America, Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Dana’s Bakery to infuse our Hi-Chew Juicy Blood Orange flavor into a delicious, layered treat that truly mimics our chewlets and welcomes the holiday season.”

The “mookie” is influenced by flavors of the holidays and the double layer technology of Hi-Chew candies. The outer layer cookie is reminiscent of homemade sugar cookies with bursts of cranberry flavor, a staple seasonal ingredient. The inner layer includes a Hi-Chew Juicy Blood Orange macaron. The blood orange flavor is also infused into the batter and the buttercream filling.

“I am a big Hi-Chew fan and was thrilled by the opportunity to create a custom Mookie inspired by one of their latest flavors for the holidays,” Dana Pollack, founder and CEO of Dana’s Bakery, adds. “The Hi-Chew Juicy Blood Orange Cranberry Mookie is an ideal gift for any foodie on your list and is a delightful treat for all ages to indulge in this season.”
