20 Delicious Little Debbie Snacks To Eat

As a kid, I fondly remember my excitement whenever I opened my lunchbox to reveal a Little Debbie treat.

Christmas Tree Cakes by Little Debbie bakery

Although my taste has changed since childhood, I still enjoy indulging in a Little Debbie snack cake from time to time. Now, I find that I even have new favorites.

In this article, I will outline some of the best Little Debbie’s snacks, including snacks across the dessert spectrum — from fruit to chocolate and everything in between.

Best Little Debbie Snacks

Below are some of our favorite Little Debbie snacks to enjoy.

Nutty Buddy

Little Debbie’s Nutty Buddy bars are a classic snack treat!

I love these cookies because of the layers of peanut butter sandwiched between wafers. The thin wafer layers make this bar super delicate and crunchy.

Nutty Buddy bars are definitely a staple in my kitchen pantry and many others. Did you know that they were one of the first Little Debbie snacks made?

Fudge Rounds

All chocolate enthusiasts love Little Debbie’s Fudge Rounds, myself included.

These sandwich desserts are all cocoa — from the cookie to the filling and even the icing pattern on top.

The best part about these Fudge Rounds is their individual wrapping, making them the perfect to-go snack. Sneak one into a child’s lunch box or take one to work.

Oatmeal Creme Pies

Oatmeal Creme Pies are the snack that started it all for Little Debbie.

These sandwich cookies are probably my favorite treat from the brand. The soft and chewy oatmeal cookies have a sweet molasses flavor.

It is combined with a light creme filling your tastebuds will love. You cannot go wrong with this combination.

Swiss Rolls

Of course, Swiss Rolls are one of Little Debbie’s best-selling snacks.

Who does not enjoy delicious creme filling swirled into a light and spongey chocolate cake?

Complete with an outer layer of fudge, these rolls satisfy my sweet tooth. They come packaged as duos, so you could share with a friend — or have more for yourself.

Star Crunch

Packaged with a cosmic theme, these individually wrapped Star Crunch cookies are truly out of this world in terms of taste.

Each cookie contains crispy rice cereal coated with layers of caramel and fudge for a meteoric flavor explosion.

The crispy rice adds a fun crunchy texture unique to other Little Debbie treats.

Zebra Cakes

Zebra Cakes get the name from their adorable (and tasty) fudge stripes that decorate the top of each snack.

Each treat contains two layers of yellow sponge cake filled with fluffy vanilla creme.

Zebra Cakes load up on sugary sweetness, likely why I enjoyed them so much as a kid.

Fudge Brownie with English Walnuts

You may have some trouble locating this Little Debbie snack since it is unclear whether the company still makes them or not.

However, select grocery stores still carry these fudge brownies with walnuts, thankfully.

These brownies are chewy, moist, and indulgent. I prefer eating one alongside a glass of milk.

Cosmic Brownies

In elementary school, my lunch box was never complete without a Little Debbie Cosmic Brownie.

These chocolatey desserts are decadent, topped with fudge icing, and decorated with colorful candies.

Why have a regular brownie when you could have one with rainbow chips?

Strawberry Shortcake Rolls

If you are on the hunt for a sweet treat that is not chocolate-forward, try Little Debbie’s Strawberry Shortcake Rolls.

This dessert contains a yellow sponge cake rolled into layers of strawberry jam and creme filling.

I prefer this snack cake in the summertime, and I think it is perfect for picnics.

Fig Bars

Fig Bars do not have the glitz and glamor of Cosmic Brownies or Zebra Cakes, but this snack is no less delicious.

These bars have a straightforward flavor profile — a soft vanilla cookie with fig filling.

However, Little Debbie makes the filling with real figs, making it even better. I love these cookies with a cup of hot tea.

Glazed Donuts

I prefer cake donuts over fried ones, which is why I love Little Debbie’s Glazed Mini Donuts.

Each donut has a sweet vanilla glaze perfect for dunking into a glass of milk, coffee, or tea. Enjoy them as a mid-afternoon snack or a special breakfast treat.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Little Debbie’s Chocolate Cupcakes are iconic for their signature curly-q vanilla swirl.

This dessert is chocolate on chocolate, from its moist cake to the fudge icing.

I like topping mine with peanut butter for a salty and sweet flavor.

Just like the walnut-topped fudge brownies, Little Debbie’s Salted Caramel Cookie Bars are difficult to find these days.

This dessert contains a crisp cookie with a gooey caramel center coated in milk chocolate.

If you cannot locate them in stores, try websites like Amazon.

Banana Marshmallow Creme Pie

Little Debbie’s Banana Marshmallow Creme Pies are reminiscent of moon pies, a southern treat.

Each pie contains a layer of vanilla marshmallow sandwiched between two thin and crisp cookies, all coated in a banana-flavored glaze.

This pie is the perfect treat for anyone who loves bananas and fluffy marshmallows.

Honey Buns

If you like cinnamon rolls, you will love Little Debbie’s Honey Buns.

The Honey Bun consists of layers of delicate cinnamon and honey-flavored pastry dipped in a vanilla glaze.

Here is a tip — microwave your Honey Bun for 30-45 seconds before eating. The glaze melts, and the pastry becomes even softer.

Powdered Donuts

Little Debbie Powdered Donuts are a classic snack choice.

I loved eating them on Saturday mornings as a kid, and I still enjoy them now. Looking for a new flavor?

Little Debbie also makes powdered cinnamon and sugar cake donuts, which are just as delicious. I might actually prefer them more. 

Christmas Tree Cakes

Little Debbie also makes seasonal treats. One of my favorites has to be their Christmas Tree Cakes.

These yellow sponge cakes, shaped like trees, have Little Debbie’s classic creme filling.

Further, each cake has festive decor, like red stripes of icing and green sprinkles. I enjoy these cakes with a warm winter drink like hot chocolate.

Red Velvet Cakes

I find myself reaching for Little Debbie Red Velvet Cakes more as an adult than as a kid.

These cakes consist of two layers of moist red velvet sponge filled with creme. Each snack cake comes decorated with vanilla glaze and red icing swirls.

These adorable cakes are the perfect treat for picnics and tea parties.

Apple Fruit Pie

Apple pie is one of my favorite fall desserts, so (of course) I adore Little Debbie’s Apple Fruit Pie.

With these individual hand pies, I do not have to fuss with slicing and serving.

I like popping them in the microwave to warm them up. Then, I eat it with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.

Devil Cremes

Little Debbie Devil Cremes are masters of simplicity.

Each sandwich dessert contains two layers of devil’s food cake filled with a classic vanilla creme filling.

Its texture is soft and fluffy, and the ratio of cake to filling is excellent. I like eating Devil Cremes with a steaming mug of hot tea.
