Some snacks you just don't mess with.


(it's really only worth a blurry picture)

A classic Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie is a beautiful thing. It's soft, squishy, creamy, sweet, and simple. I understand why the people at Little Debbie might want to make something else delicious in the same vein. I could eat four to six of them right now.

The newer Little Debbie PB&J Oatmeal Pie, however, doesn't work. Here, the Oatmeal cookies are stiff, not soft. The peanut butter and jelly filling they've created is not tasty enough to complement the oatmeal. It falls flat. I am relatively sure I will never eat another one, and I'm pretty fond of a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

In theory that sounds like a really good snack. That's too bad it doesn't really taste all that great.

Mmm...Little Debbie...I love those but I can't remember the last time I had one.

DG -- I'm such a PB&J fan that I was mightily disappointed.

LJ -- The nice thing is that you can still get a box of most of the Little Debbie items for under $2.
