6 snack cakes we’ll never eat again, but will forever crave

Little Debbie caused a minor mass hysteria a few weeks ago when their Twitter account posted a cryptic message that seemed to suggest one of their classic snack cakes was being retired. See the company’s tweet below:

In the end, Little Debbie clarified that the post was meant in good fun. It was simply their way of participating in a trending hashtag “#OneGottaGo,” where Twitter users post a selection of cherished items and challenge each other to pick the one they’d sacrifice. In response to Little Debbie’s tweet, fans got downright protective of the Nutty Buddy bars, the Oatmeal Creme Pies and the Christmas Tree Cakes. But the Honey Buns? Those ended up being the one most folks claimed they would pitch, if they had to.

We could hardly blame these loyal snack cake fans for getting all worked up. Over the years, we’ve watched some of our favorite foods disappear from the grocery store shelves, whether it’s a frozen ice pop or a piping-hot toaster treat. In fact, it got us thinking about some of the snack cakes that were whisked away before we were done craving them.

Below, we’ve dug through the retro pantry to pull out six of the most snackworthy cakes that Little Debbie, Hostess and other cake makers retired for good, despite the fact that we were all so sweet on them. See if your favorite cakes made our list!
