Is Little Debbie Going Out Of Business?
Many American kids grew up eating Little Debbie cakes and packaged snacks. As rumours spread that Zebra Cakes might be going out of business
We are relieved to confirm that, according to the reports, Little Debbie is not going out of business.
McKee Foods owns the company that began when Debbie McKee-grandfather Fowler's sold snacks from his car.
Soon, he was working with production companies to make his own brand of snack foods, which he called "Grandma's," after his granddaughter.
The snack company's first owner was O.D. McKee
, who also owned Sunbelt Bakery, which makes Chewy granola bars.
People living on US military bases abroad or Nutty Buddy fans in Canada will be the only ones to notice big changes to the brand.
Little Debbie snacks will no longer be sold on US military bases or in Canada because the prices have gone up. They will still be sold in stores in the US, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
Little Debbie was based on O.D. McKee's granddaughter Debbie, who was four years old at the time.
Is Little Debbie a real person?
Since 1960, Debbie McKee-face Fowler's has been on snack boxes in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Market Realist says that the company sells more than
packages of its three most popular products every year.
Their Swiss Cake Rolls, Oatmeal Creme Pies, and Nutty Buddy Wafer Bars are some of the things they sell.
