HORSHAM, Pa.

“Weight Watchers branded and endorsed products make it easier for consumers to make smart choices and identify the foods that can help them achieve their weight loss and weight management goals,” said Hugh Dever, Director of Licensing at Weight Watchers. “Bread and whole grains are such an important part of our diets and the Weight Watchers endorsement of Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Sandwich Thins® rolls offers followers of the PointsPlus® program the ability to easily enjoy these foods on the path to meeting their goals.”
Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Sandwich Thins® rolls offer consumers the perfect foundation to build their sandwich of choice. Weight Watchers followers can easily customize creations to better manage their PointsPlus® Allowance, using any of the six varieties:
- 100% Whole Wheat

Every variety is baked with the goodness of whole grains, and the 100% whole wheat options offer 20 grams of whole grain per roll.
