There’s nothing like a seasonal snack cake to get you into the holiday spirit, and little Debbie will always bring the produce. For the holiday season, Little Debbie’s offerings include:
• Christmas Tree Cakes
• Chocolate Christmas Cakes
• Christmas Tree Brownies
• Snowflake Brownies
• cherry cordials
• soft gingerbread Cookies
I tryd them all and ranked them in a hierarchy of greatness. Here it is.
#6: Cherry Cordials
I like chocolate covered cherry liqueur sweetand I like what little Debbie is looking for here at trying to approximate those sweets in snack pie form. But it fails to execute, and as suchthis cake is not for me.
The first bite reminds me too much of a Luden’s Cough Drop-ssomething a lot of cherry flavored things have to overcome, and not all of them make it. EITHEROverall, the experience is not something I would want. keep coming back, let alone find myself wishing.
#5: Chocolate Christmas Tree Cakes
This cake structure is one of Little Debbie’s most winning approaches: two cake layers with filling between them, topped with a layer of decorated frosting and sprinkles. However, the combination of chocolate cake, chocolate filling, and chocolate glaze it’s just not working for me. There is not enough contrast between the elements, and everything grows a bit confusing.
#4: Christmas Tree Brownies
little debbie cosmic brownies are a perennial crowd-pleaser, and these little trees—the most beautiful of all seasonal holidays options—they are essentially the same, with a conical shape, green frosting, and the little candes on top serving as small ornaments. Generally, a Little Debbie brownie is always a win for me, and these are a Excellent version of a classic.
#3: Snowflake Brownies
If you remove all the candy from the Christmas Tree Brownie, which I did it as a childand I saw my own son do it the other day)you end up with something that has a soft bite all the way through, essentially, you end up with a snowflake brownie. I rate the Snowflake Brownie a bit higher for several reasons. First, I think they’re legitimately pretty, with snow-white frosting on top and an intricate shape stamped into it.. Second, it is one of the only snacks in lineup who marks himself as a “winter” gift instead of a “Christmas” gift (although it does have Santa in the box). And third, neither you nor your children have to bother to choose all those little sweets out. They just don’t add as much;
#2: Gingerbread Cbiscuits
Even though my mom bought them for me when I was a kid, I’m completely I forgot about them until I was doing this tasting, and I was pleasantly surprised when I took a bite. They have just the right mix of ginger and molasses to taste like an excellent gingerbread man, and they are smooth in the perfect way. They’re not too cloyingly sweet either. I feel comfortable tossing one in my daughter’s lunch box for some festive fun that isn’t so sweet it’ll be bouncing off the walls all afternoon.
#1: Christmas Tree Cakes
When I ranked everyone Little Debbie’s Fall Snack Cake Offeringsthe Vanilla Fall Party Cakes, which are essentially the same as these Christmas tree cakes (as they are all year Zebra Cakes Y fancy cakes) were not my first choice. However, in the winter lineup, they come out on top.
men really thinking about their taste and why they seem so appropriate for the seasonI realized that these cakes it tastes like petit fours, which my mom used to buy for Christmas and they were little cakes covered with a coating similar to this one. So these win in the sneaky nostalgia department for me, and maybe for you too. Other than that though, they are just the perfect bite, full of sweetness but nothing to clog you up. Plus, they have that subtle savory flavor that makes Zebra Cake one of my favorites all year long.
