UK bakery company Rich Products, which specialises in indulgent goods, has launched a filled cookie.

The product is a first for the UK market, Rich's claimed.

The American-style cookies come in two varieties - Chocolate Cookie with a cream filling and Vanilla Cookie with a milk chocolate filling.

"Cookies are extremely popular with consumers, but there is a definite gap in the market and demand for a high-quality, but affordable offering in the standard sector. These delicious filled cookies fill this gap - providing something completely unique, innovative and exciting that aims to drive market growth forward," Gail Lindsay, Rich's marketing manager, said.
