455- WAS/IS THERE REALLY A "LITTLE DEBBIE"?......

MOST DEFINITELY! And do YOU have a fave?
In the early '60s, company founder, O.D. and Ruth McKee, created a line of snack foods but needed a name. They chose their little granddaughter, little DEBBIE! An artist, hired to draw little Debbie, originally did so in B&W, using her fave play clothes and straw hat. Little Debbie's parents, didn't discover the snack foods, until they first were on the shelves.
The very first Little Debbie cookie was the Oatmeal Creme Cookie...still sold, and the unique family pack carton costs 49c. Within a short time, the Nutty Bars Wafer bars and Swiss Cake Rolls were added, and are still sold. Today, in 2010, there are 75 varieties going strong across America on the shelves.
Again, what is your fave??
