Yodels are frosted, cream-filled cakes made by the Drake's company, which was bought by McKee Foods after former owner Old HB went bankrupt. Yodels were distributed on the East Coast of the United States.[citation needed] They were similar to Hostess Brands' Ho Hos and Little Debbie's Swiss Rolls.


Each plastic package of Yodels contains three cakes, totaling 440 calories and three grams of saturated fat. Yodels are also sold in boxes containing five or eight individually wrapped pairs of cakes (a total of ten or 16). Formerly Yodels used a different formula, with thicker, denser cake and came packaged in foil. This was changed by the late 80s to the current recipe and packaging.[citation needed]

In popular culture[edit]


  • Yodels are named as the preferred food source of the character Jeri in the comic strip PreTeena.[1]


  • The snacks were featured in the movie Click (2006), in which the main character (played by Adam Sandler) becomes extremely overweight after eating Yodels for 10 years.
