Is there anything to rival the innocent sweetness of a Little Debbie treat? From the extreme simplicity of their classic goodies to their chemist-friendly ingredient lists to the cute little girl whose portrait adorns every box, the brand embodies pure, sugary nostalgia.

It is definitely candy bar worthy. At 12 to a box with a cost of less than $2.00 per box, they’re very reasonable to purchase for your every day snack food.
