Hostess vs Little Debbie

The age long battle for the snack crown can finally be put to an end. Jordan and I sat down and gave a fully devoted taste to four items from each brand. The Hostess products were paired with Cyhi the Prince, Kanye West ,and D.R.A.M. The Little Debbie products were paired with the A$AP Mob and Kendrick Lamar. Jordan and I each had a bottle of Mountain Dew Game Fuel to wash it down with. The way these snacks were graded is each snack was out of 5 stars for both judges, then the 4 scores were added together out of 40, the higher ranked brand was obviously named the champion.

Cupcakes:

Ian – 4.5 out of 5

Jordan – 3.5 out of 5

Cupcakes are my personal favorite on the Hostess side. We kept the mix of chocolate to not chocolate flavored Hostess items because they do offer variety for each snack. The orange Cupcakes to be exact are one of my all time favorites. With the Game Fuel and new Cyhi, they certainly didn’t disappoint with a total rating of 8/10.

Hostess Total: 8/10

Nutty Buddy:

Ian – 4 out of 5

Jordan – 4.5 out of 5

The Nutty Buddy cookie. A classic example of the excellence that comes when pairing peanut butter and chocolate. Some people munch away at each individually, or at the same time, or some weirdos even dissect the cookie as they eat it. Weird. But as a superior choice in the snack aisle accompanied by an A$AP Twelvyy cut, the cookies got a solid 8.5/10 total rating.

 

Little Debbie Total: 8.5/10

Ding Dongs:

Ian – 3.5 out of 5

Jordan – 4 out of 5

Ding Dongs are a better cake than their names lets them be. A bite of spongey chocolate cake and a great amount of cream filling in the middle. Dat Side the new Cyhi featuring Kanye was a great pairing leaving for a 7.5/10 total.

Hostess Total: 15.5/20

Oatmeal Creme Pie:

Ian – 4 out of 5

Jordan – 4.5 out of 5

Oatmeal Creme Pie, the OCP, a cookie created by the snack gods. Soft oatmeal cookies sandwiching a large amount of creamy fluff, this cookie is possibly the easiest pick on the snack aisle. I remember at school lunch tables the OCP was the highest valued trade item. With the Cozy Tapes posse cut What Happens, the OCP was a delicacy, with a total rating of 8.5/10.

Little Debbie Total: 17/20

Twinkies:

Ian – 2.5 out of 5

Jordan – 1 out of 5

The most famous of all the snack cakes, the Twinkie is to represent what Hostess stands for. Now maybe it was in comparison to all the other cakes, but I was somewhat disgusted by this. I used to love Twinkies but today they weren’t doing the job. Jordan only took one bite before throwing the sponge down. This was when the D.R.A.M. listening began but it couldn’t save the Twinkie for us. A total rating of 3.5/10.

Hostess Total:19/30

Swiss Rolls:

Ian – 1 out of 5

Jordan – 3.5 out of 5

I dreaded coming upon this moment. Swiss Rolls disgust me, Jordan on the other hand stated before hand that he loves them. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, I know this is ridiculous but thats really my reasoning here. I just think its too much… We were listening to Raf by the Mob which could’ve helped it, but not for me. Swiss Rolls  got a total of 4.5 out of 10, a bit generous if you ask me….

Little Debbie Total: 21.5/30

Zingers:

Ian – 4.5 out of 5

Jordan – 4 out of 5

Hostess really ending on a high note here. Zingers are great with the same idea as the Ding Dongs but topped off with chocolate icing to make things even better. Personally I think the orange flavored Zingers are fantastic and possibly would’ve earned a 5 out of 5 from me, but I kept it to 2 chocolate and 2 not for each brand. The vibe of Broccoli along with these sweet treats was a perfect duo and achieved a total rating of 8.5/10.

Hostess Total: 27.5/40

Zebra Cake:

Ian – 3 out of 5

Jordan – 4 out of 5

A Zebra Cake was the deciding factor in such a close battle. For some reason I opt for the seasonal cakes Little Debbie puts out instead of these. The cake is soft and great and so is the creme filling, but strangely the combination doesn’t really do it for me. However, I declare New Freezer by Rich the Kid and Kendrick Lamar to be the official Zebra Cake jam. The pairing was truly magnificent and I fully recommend anyone try it despite the total rating being a 7/10.

Little Debbie Total: 28.5/10

With that Little Debbie takes the crown, but I think I know why…

 

Hostess snacks have a rich and flavorful taste, more like a dessert than a simple snack. Little Debbie snacks are easy to eat, at any moment you can have an OCP or Nutty Buddy. However they remain delicious and just barely beat out Hostess.

Final Scores:

Hostess: 27.5/40

Little Debbie: 28.5/40
