Your Favorite Little Debbie Snack is Now a Cereal
In the early 1960s, McDonald's was only a few years old, and the microwave still wasn't a household staple. Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies also hit grocery store shelves for the first time, and generations of kids have since fallen in love with the soft and chewy cookie sandwiches. Now there's a new way to enjoy them—as a breakfast cereal!
Oatmeal Creme Pies Cereal contains crispy oatmeal puffs made with cinnamon, molasses, and nutmeg and covered in a creme coating. Every mouthful delivers the flavor you expect from the iconic dessert, according to Kellogg's. Boxes are now available in grocery stores in your neck of the woods, including at Walmart for $3.64. (While this cereal is making its way into stores, here are the 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)
"The original Little Debbie snack cakes, Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, have delighted millions of kids and adults alike for generations," Erin Storm, senior marketing director of Kellogg All Family Cereal, says. "With Kellogg's Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies Cereal, families can experience the iconic snack in a whole new form, building new breakfast memories while paying homage to the beloved childhood snack."
Though chewy and soft, the cookies themselves contain large amounts of calories, carbs, fat, and added sugars. Unfortunately, the same goes for the cereal. Per 1 1/4 cup, it contains 170 calories, 3 grams of fat, 33 carbs, and 17 grams of sugar. Thus, it's best to limit how often you enjoy this new throw-back food, even though it's loaded with nostalgia.
