New Allergy‑Friendly Option Joins DoubleTree by Hilton's Cookie Welcome
To celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, August 4, DoubleTree by Hilton, known for the beloved signature cookie welcome, announced that starting today, it will begin offering a new allergy-friendly soft chocolate chip cookie, alongside the original DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie, extending the iconic welcome to even more guests.
DoubleTree by Hilton has collaborated with Partake Foods, a leading allergy-friendly food company, to produce the new cookie, with the goal of creating a more inclusive welcoming experience at check-in.
More than 32 million people in the United States are affected by food allergies, and others have food intolerances or dietary preferences.
For more than 50 years, DoubleTree by Hilton has made it its mission to provide guests with a warm welcome and comfortable stay. Team members will now offer guests their choice of the new DoubleTree by Hilton allergy-friendly chocolate chip cookie or DoubleTree’s original chocolate chip cookie, at check-in at all DoubleTree by Hilton hotels across the United States.
The soft-baked allergy-friendly cookie is gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, and free of the top nine allergens (wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, eggs, soy, fish, sesame, and shellfish).
Produced by Partake Foods in a dedicated top nine allergen-free facility, the cookie is individually wrapped during production, ensuring it is free from cross-contamination before being offered to guests at check-in.
The DoubleTree cookie has fans around the world and beyond – it was the first food ever baked in space, during experiments aboard the International Space Station.
In 2022, alone, DoubleTree by Hilton served more than 19 million cookies. With the addition of the allergy-friendly cookie, many guests will get to experience the signature welcoming moment the brand is known for, a chocolate chip cookie at check-in, for the first time.
