Mrs. Fields Brands Inc. can force Interbake Foods LLC to honor an agreement to market the chain’s chocolate-chip cookies at grocery and convenience stores, a judge ruled.

Interbake, which makes Girl Scout cookies and store-brand treats for retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc., wrongfully attempted to pull out of the Mrs. Fields pact early and must continue to sell the company’s sweet treats until the end of the year, Delaware Chancery Court Judge Andre Bouchard concluded Monday.
