The Feels Good Podcast recently did an episode where we ranked the best Little Debbie Snacks. Seeing the Little Debbie display in the grocery store brings joy and excitement like none other. Rarely does a day go by that I don't enjoy a Little Debbie of some kind. We ranked the best Little Debbie has to offer. Did your favorite one make our list? Let's get to it!

#12 Mini Muffins

Mini Muffins

Mini Muffins

Do you enjoy muffins? Do you enjoy bite size portions? You will absolutely love Mini Muffins! I have tried every flavor and none of them disappoint. Each bite is unbelievably soft with a flavor that feels like you just bit into a tiny piece of perfection.

In 2012, Little Debbie Mini Muffins were launched. Blueberry, Chocolate Chip and Mini Brownies were all added to the sweetness line-up.

#11 Strawberry Shortcake Rolls

Strawberry Shortcake Rolls

Strawberry Shortcake Rolls

I totally get the appeal here. I mean look at these things. They look super enticing with that swirl of cream and strawberry inside a cake roll.

Little Debbie Strawberry Shortcake Rolls were originally sprinkled with sugar and called Jelly Rolls. They became Strawberry Shortcake Rolls in 1994, almost 30 years after they were introduced!

#10 Donut Sticks

Donut Sticks

Donut Sticks

Glazed Donut Sticks are simply amazing. Another one of those snacks that you can eat and call it breakfast. Did you know that Donut Sticks were named Dunk'em Sticks when they were introduced in 1983?

In 1983, Little Debbie introduced Dunk’em Sticks! These treats are a must have for so many people’s busy mornings and remain a fan favorite today!

#9 Cosmic Brownie

Cosmic Brownie

Cosmic Brownie

Biting into an absolutely fresh brownie is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world. Fudge Brownies were introduced in 1969, but have been extinct since the birth of Cosmic Brownies in 1999. The Cosmic Brownie is a star in the Little Debbie lineup!

In September 1999, Cosmic Brownies were introduced. Did you know the galactic treat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies were originally created because of the Cosmic Bowling trend?

#8 Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcake

Chocolate Cupcake

When eating a delicious cupcake, I like to break it in half and lick the cream out of it. That's a pro tip. The moist cake with creme in the middle makes this snack completely irresistible. The chocolate frosting on top with the classic white swirl also makes it pleasing to the eyes as well.

Chocolate cupcakes were launched in 2009! We are so glad they did!

#7 Mini Donuts

Mini Donuts

Mini Donuts

I could easily make a case for mini donuts being the number one snack that Little Debbie makes. These little bite-sized snacks come in a multitude of flavors to appease your taste buds. From powdered to chocolate frosted to glazed, these mini pieces of heaven are just what you need in your life.

Little Debbie introduced bagged Frosted and Powdered Mini Donuts in 2009 as well!

#6 Oatmeal Creme Pies

Oatmeal Creme Pies

Oatmeal Creme Pies

A fan-favorite for sure. Oatmeal Creme Pies are Little Debbie's top seller. The soft oatmeal cookies sandwiched on that delicious creme are a perfect treat anytime of the day. Maybe eating oatmeal makes it feel less guilty. Take it from me, however, the big ones are infinitely better than the smaller ones.

#5 Swiss Rolls

Swiss Rolls

Swiss Rolls

Amazingly crafted and incredibly delicious. Not much can beat a good swiss roll in your mouth. We are in the top tier of Little Debbie snacks at this point. When you think about Little Debbie, Swiss Rolls definitely come to mind. Something about the creme and chocolate being rolled together that makes it taste superior to other snacks.

Can you believe that Swiss Rolls have been around since 1962?

#4 Fudge Rounds

Fudge Rounds

Fudge Rounds

Do you love chocolate? These delicious little treats are right up your alley. Like the Oatmeal Creme Pie, the big ones are the superior snack. Also, we have tried to petition Little Debbie to make a Fudge Creme Pie. Imagine the cookies from the fudge round with the creme from an Oatmeal Creme pie. It would easily be the best thing ever.

Fudge Rounds were introduced in 1974!

#3 Zebra Cakes

Zebra Cakes

Zebra Cakes

I am a sucker for Zebra Cakes. I can't think of many things I wouldn't do if offered one. That creme in the middle of the yellow cake is one of life's guilty pleasures. Not to mention "Zebra Cakes" is just a really cool name for a snack.

Did you know most of the products made in 1964 still exist today? Swiss Rolls, Zebra Cakes, Raisin Creme Pies, Nutty Buddy and Oatmeal Creme Pies are still around for tasty snacking!

#2 Nutty Buddy

Nutty Buddy

Nutty Buddy

Simply amazing. Nutty Buddy has the perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate mixed in with a wafer. That crispy crunch gives you that perfect sensation. Easily a top choice of all Little Debbie fans. Grab you a pack and share with your friends!

# 1 Christmas Tree Cakes

Christmas Tree Cakes

Christmas Tree Cakes

The number 1 Little Debbie according to the Feels Good Podcast. The excitement of Christmas is doubled each year when I first walk in a store and see these boxes on the shelves. A Christmas miracle indeed. Can you believe these cakes were introduced in 1985? I have no memory of enjoying them as a kid. I am going to have a talk with my parents and ask them why they didn't love me.

First introduced in 1985 in a triangular shape with a chocolate trunk. The scalloped tree shape was introduced in 2012.

Conclusion
