|Oatmeal Creme Pie.|
The cookies are super-soft, just like I like them. They don't have a very strong oatmeal flavor however, and have a slight plastic flavor to them. They are so soft though!
The filling is just crazy sweet, exactly as I remember. The ratio of cookie to filling is perfect.
These really haven't changed. I don't love them, and won't get them again, but they sure are a classic.

The cake was, like Entenmann's, a strange, unnatural, yellow color. It was fairly unremarkable, not really moist nor dry, not really having any particular flavor.
The chocolate shell was similarly flavorless. I wanted it to be chocolatey, I wanted it to be a bit crunchy, but it wasn't really anything. The Entenmann's version had a much richer chocolate flavor.
Meh. Would not get again.
I thought I remembered these as being one of my favorite items, although I was confused when I opened the box. What I remembered came in totally different packaging ... I remember individual little plastic boxes. And I thought they were more caramelized and more loaded with pecans. Am I remembering something else? Did these change? Am I totally making this all up?
Anyway, these weren't good. Moist dough that was kinda gummy and strange. I didn't find any pecans in it, although there was some gritty substance in with the cinnamon that must have been the pecans. There was some cinnamon flavor at least.
Ojan says, "It tastes gluten-free, like made with cashews. Or maybe vegan. That was gross. Why did you make me eat that?"
Least favorite of the items I tried.
Like most of the treats we'd been trying, I expected to take a bit of one of them, and then hand the rest over to Ojan, who was busy exclaiming how great they were. "Yeah right," I thought, "low quality waxy milk chocolate, peanut flavored paste, and some stale wafers. I'm sure they are great!" How wrong I was! Sure, those things may have been true, but they were still really tasty. Classic chocolate and peanut butter, always a great combination. And a nice crispy wafer. Yum!
I ate them just as I did as a kid - layer by layer, rather than biting right into them. I love separating them like that. I haven't seen anyone else eat them this way, but it feels so natural to me :)
Ojan and I both really liked them, and if I was really going to purchase more Little Debbie snacks, these would surely be the ones. Ojan of course did purchase them a few more times after this first encounter, but I think he is sick of them finally.
