My oldest daughter went grocery shopping with my wife the other day and, since we didn’t have a lot of sweets in our house, my wife let her pick out something for dessert.
Her choice was a box of Little Debbie Fudge Swirls. And, I have to confess, I had to go out of my way to make sure she got to eat one of these.
When I first saw this product, I honestly didn’t think it was any different than any of the dozens of other products that are out there. In fact, they look very similar to another product Little Debbie offers. The only difference (at least I thought at the time) was these had a chocolate filling rather than a white cream filling.
After trying them, however, I can honestly say that was not the case.
As I said before, from the box, it looked like the only difference between these and another Little Debbie snack was the color of the frosting. However, in addition to the chocolate cream filling, there were also a couple different types of chocolate, including what looked like chocolate syrup. This succeeded in giving it a variety of flavors rather than just one. The best part, for me at least, was the fact the chocolate wasn’t too sweet. It was sweet enough to provide a treat without having a strong sugary taste to it like some other snack foods or desserts.
The end result was I ate the two that were in the first pack I opened and had to go out of my way to resist eating a second pack of them right away. And, since my daughter opted not to have dessert that night (and spent the next night at her grandparents); I also had to make every effort to save her the last pack.
The only thing I would caution you on when it comes to this dessert is to make sure you keep it stored in your refrigerator or, at very least, a cool place. The reason I say this is, when they melt, they make a much bigger mess than you would expect. This, of course, was something I had to learn the hard way (at least with the first pack of these).
Otherwise, if you are looking for something different for dessert or just something different for a snack, I definitely would recommend these. It is another great treat from Little Debbie that isn’t like anything else I have ever tried.
