Kellogg's Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies Cereal Is Here
Southern Living 2hrs ago

Once upon a time, in a land before the coronavirus pandemic, cereal for dinner maybe didn't seem like the best idea. These days, breakfast for dinner is the once-weekly indulgence that we eagerly anticipate. There's something about the comfort of sitting down with a giant bowl, filled to the brim with a comfort food cereal, with perhaps a feel-good movie streaming, that makes for the perfect mid-week treat.

Now, we're feeling especially excited to add a new cereal into our rotation—whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack—Kellogg's Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. Now available at stores and online nationwide, the new cereal comes as the original Little Debbie snack cake celebrates its 60th anniversary, and comes with a suggested retail price of $3.99 for a 9.1-ounce box and $5.69 for a 14.5-ounce box. (You can score them at Walmart.com for $3.64 for the 14.5-ounce box!) Taste-wise, the cereal is composed of delectable oatmeal cookie cereal pieces made with cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of molasses, reminiscent of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies.

"At Kellogg, we are always looking for delicious ways to surprise and excite our fans. The original Little Debbie snack cakes, Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, have delighted millions of kids and adults alike for generations," said Erin Storm, senior marketing director of Kellogg All Family Cereal in a Kellogg Company press release. "With Kellogg's Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies Cereal, families can experience the iconic snack in a whole new form, building new breakfast memories while paying homage to the beloved childhood snack."

Echoing Storm, Jeff Badger, vice president of marketing at McKee Foods, parent company of Little Debbie, commented in the same press release: "It's a joyous moment to see one of our fans' most-loved Little Debbie products—the Oatmeal Creme Pie—be transformed for a new eating experience. The cereal captures the flavor of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies in a fun, new way, whether you enjoy it in a bowl with milk or straight out of the box."

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
