Snacks, treats, goodies, whatever you want to call them, nothing beats Little Debbie Snack Cakes.  I could just end it here and still be right.  LOL,  Little Debbie Snack cakes really do check off all the boxes when it comes to the ultimate snack.

Just what they do alone at Christmas could win them a gold medal for snacks.  The Christmas Tree Cakes, chocolate and vanilla,  The Cherry Cordials, The Ginger Bread Men, The Brownies, and on and on.  They do this around Valentine’s, Fall, and other holidays.  Now, they have even made candles, yes candles that smell like Little Debbie Cakes

The Best Of The Best Little Debbie Cakes

I’m going to count down my top 6 Little Debbie Snack cakes.  This may have been the hardest list I’ve ever put together.  Why?  Little Debbie makes the best snack cakes ever.  I’m hard pressed to find one that I don’t like.  While this was a hard list to make, they all couldn’t make it.  Here are a few of the runner-ups!

  • The White Powder Doughnuts
  • The Honey Bun
  • The Zebra Cakes
  • The Donut Sticks
  • Strawberry Shortcakes
  • The Muffins

If these are the runner-ups, what does that top 6 look like?

The History of The Little Debbie Company started right in the middle of the Great Depression.   O.D. McKee began selling 5¢ snack cakes from the back of his 1928 Whippet. A few years later he and his wife Ruth purchased a small bakery that was in financial trouble.  They used the family’s car as collateral to purchase the bakery.  Things were so hard on the McKee family, that they lived in the back of the bakery with just a sheet separating the bakery from their home.

Around 1960 they began selling the first family pack of baked goods, naming them after their granddaughter, Debbie.   Little Debbie.  This is now a 4th generation company bringing us nothing but the best snacks and snack cakes ever.

Where is “Little Debbie” today?  Well, she is still involved with the family business! Debbie McKee-Fowler  holds the title of Executive Vice President and serves on the McKee Foods Board of Directors.

Ok, here we go, the top 6 Little Debbie Snack Cakes according to me.  My List.  Nothing scientific, nothing fancy, just the ones I love.  When I said it earlier, it truly was the hardest list to put together.

  • #6-Nutty Buddy Bars

    The Nutty Buddy Bar.  Simple, but yet full of flavor and fun.  This is the one on my list that really could have been higher, but the others are so good!

  • #5-Peanut Butter Crunch Bar

    I believe this is one of the most forgotten Little Debbie Snack Cake.  Listen, It has Peanut Butter in it!  How can this one get so much disrespect?  A Peanut Butter Crunch Bar and Chocolate milk can not be topped.  It just can’t!

  • #4-The Swiss Cake Roll

    Like many of Little Debbie Treats, this one gets tweaked from time to time.  They will put a strawberry filling, and even peppermint

  • #3-The Oatmeal Cream Pie

    to be honest, the top 3 could all be number 1.  This was a hard list to create.  Now, I personally like the ones you get in the single pack, the double one better, but any version of this treat is pure fire

  • #2-The Fudge Rounds

    This one just simply speaks for itself.  The Fudge Round is one of just the best.  This is the golden ticket of Little Debbie Cakes

  • #1-The Cosmic Brownie

    I know I’m going to catch grief on this one, but I’m ready for the battle.  This is just the cream of the crop.  The regular Little Debbie Brownie was great.  When they added the cosmic, the game was over.  Not sure Little Debbie will ever be able to top this one.
