Pros: A light and fluffy treat, fudgie coating, 140 calories.
Cons: 22 grams of carbohydrates, addictive, hard to find.
Until three or four years ago I was a Little Debbie rookie. I'd never really known about the snacks in the product line until someone tossed me a Nutty Bar. After that, well, I was hooked. Now that we live on the East Coast they are easier to find but there are some selections, like the Marshmallow Supremes, that can't be found. Part of that is Little Debbie's fault; if she didn't have so many products to offer then retailers wouldnt have to pick and choose what to vend. Those cute Little Debbie stands that you see in the grocery store can only hold so much product so inevitably something is going to get left out. You can ask your grocery manager to stock them but if they do you will probably get some evil looks if they are sitting on the shelf for weeks at a time so make sure you do your part and spread the word about the sheer awesomeness of Marshmallow Supremes.
Little Debbie Marshmallow Supremes
What is it? Take a chocolate cookie, cover it with a large dollop of marshmallow and cover it in chocolate. It is sort of like a Moon Pie but it doesnt have a graham cracker bottom to it. It isn't all that messy to eat but you can end up with marshmallow all over your face if you aren't careful. Instead of going with a milk chocolate coating to it, McKee Foods decided to switch things up a little and use a darker fudgie type of coating. This gives it a really unique taste and makes it something that really is a stand out treat. They aren't the best thing to try to pack in a lunch though, any exposure to heat and the chocolate coating starts to melt and stick to the wrapper. It doesn't change the taste of it but it does make it messy to eat.
For what ever reason the Marshmallow Supremes are hard to find in this area; when Tommy is out and about working he usually manages to find them in various Wal-Mart stores but none of the grocery stores around here stock them. The eight count boxes that he brings home have a suggested retail price of $1.59 but that price can vary depending on where you live and the type of store you are shopping in. If you are a regular Little Debbie shopper you'll know that prices can vary on products; locally our Save-A-Lot stores sell them for about .20 cents less per box or off a 10% off discount when you buy the family sized packs. I have never seen these packaged individually but if they are, chances are the are .35 cents a piece. Are they worth it? If you are into Moon Pies but are looking for something with more marshmallow to it then chances are you will love these.
One Marshmallow Supreme is considered one serving and if you can stick to that, well, you have more will power than anyone in this house. You get 140 calories, 5 grams of fat, 22 grams of carbohydrates [15 from sugar] and 1 skinny gram of protein per serving. Now, if you have just one of them you are in the clear but when you take down a half a box at a time you could be in some trouble. Sadly, we go a little crazy with these when Tommy finds them. They get microwaved and added to ice cream or just tossed in a bowl and covered with it. The cool thing is the shell on the outside gets hard so you have to stab into it with your spoon so never try that treat on a plate because you will be chasing it all over the place.
So what about the title? Well, Tommy, being a red blooded male, always laughs about them when he takes two out of the box. He made a comment about Little Debbie's memories one time and wondered if they were larger or smaller than the Marshmallow Supremes. I hated to break it to him but Debbie was nothing more than a drawing on a cardboard box. Sure there may be some tie in with someone related to an owner but for all intents and purposes, Debbie is a drawing. If you live in an area where you can't get these you can order them from the online store that is run by McKee Foods. Even though its easy as pie to order from the website you have to order by the quarter or full case and if we had that many around the house at any given time, well, we'd be in some major trouble.
As always, thanks for the visit
