Vitamin fortifying Little Debbie products[edit]

The cheap but good multivitamins online are 2.55 ¢ each (kind of) Thus a 10 or 20 pt of USRDI on most vitamins could be just a tenth to a fifth of a ¢ to add to each Little Debbie product vastly improving their nutritional value

I mean a tenth of a ¢ per cake is less than an entire ¢ per 1.79 thingy

should we start a Peta like action group to bring awareness Or would it be more effective to tell them that they would actually make much more than .8¢ per thingy if they put Contains Vitamins on the front plus showed little debbie um, radiating energy beams —Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.211.132.73 (talk) 16:42, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Old discussions[edit]

Hopefully someone can find a link or other proof regarding the popularity of Little Debbie snacks among incarcerated folks stuck inside prisons. Unable to recall the source but it was reputable enough for the information to stick in my mind for several years. Specifically, prison inmates buy a lot of Little Debbie snacks from the inside-the-prison commissary and that the Honey Bun is the single most popular Little Debbie product. This may be trivial information but I find it interesting and since the Little Debbie post is so short it can't harm anything to include some interesting trivia.I do not believe this trivia snippet is disparaging of Little Debbie products. The lovely, the talented, the incredibly good-looking Obbop told you this. 209.50.1.103 17:23, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

I was was watching the prison documentary series "Lock Up" on MSNBC and when they were touring the (I think but I'm not sure) Kentucky facility, a lady in the prison snack store was being interviewed and describing all the different types of Honeybuns the prisoners would buy with their work credit.

List of little debbies[edit]

Could someone please include a list of all the little debbies that exist? thanks! -24.92.41.95 18:08, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, there's my cousin Debbie up in Buffalo, then there's my sister-in-law Debbie in Texas, then there was this girl Debbie in my high school, then... Jmdeur (talk) 19:47, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

O.D.?[edit]

Just who or what is O.D.? This isn't explained in the article. --Zantolak 04:06, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Check the "Company History" section. O.D. is the first initials of one of the founders of McKee Foods. If it still doesn't seem clear enough perhaps his last name should be added to the other times his first initials are used. Immerpunktlich 06:40, 13 January 2007 (UTC)+

I've been a McKee employee for nearly 20 years.

O.D. stands for Oather Dorris.

Now, in all fairness, wouldn't you prefer O.D.?


SDA Link[edit]

Mckee Foods has no affiliation with the Seventh Day Adventist Church, therefore, all linkage to the SDA church should be removed. The private beliefs of the owners have no place being included in an informative article. If the beliefs of the owners are to be considered, they should be in a seperate article specifically about the owners.

--DiamondElusive (talk) 14:25, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

If the company management stipulated that their logos are not to be displayed on sponsored race cars and crew uniforms on Saturdays as is mentioned (and sourced) in the article, I would say that the link to Seventh Day Adventism is germane to an article about the company.SEWalk (talk) 02:00, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

Some attention must be given to the specific products listed here. "Nutty Bars" redirects to here, even though the product has its own page. Conversely, "Oatmeal Creme Pies" goes to an "OCP" disambiguation page. Not a Wikipro, just pointing this out. O0drogue0o (talk) 09:21, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Reference for some details[edit]

I was going to add details from http://www.chattanoogan.com/2008/3/5/123372/Ellsworth-McKee-From-Lean-Times-To.aspx but ran out of time. 68.165.77.148 (talk) 09:02, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
