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.
The Little Bites line also includes chocolate chip, blueberry and brownie varieties.
Bimbo Bakeries’ newly-added chocolate party cakes are less than 200 calories per pouch, and each box contains five individual pouches. They are available at retailers across the US.

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