YAY! Little Debbie is now OU Kosher!
KosherEye is delighted to give a special welcome to the newly OU kosher certified Little Debbie’s Snacks.
A Little History about the brand from the brand:
The Little Debbie story began during the great depression when young entrepreneur O.D. McKee began selling 5 cent snack cakes from the back of his car. He was just out of college and newly married, and eager to get into the baking business. Soon after, he and his wife, Ruth, bought a small, failing bakery, using the family car as collateral. Money was so tight that they had to put up a sheet near the back of the bakery for the family's living quarters. Despite several years of struggle, in 1960 O.D. and Ruth began selling the first family pack of baked goods, naming them after their granddaughter, Debbie. The bakery continued to grow but remained a family bakery. O.D. and Ruth’s sons, Ellsworth and Jack, eventually took over, and they are now introducing the 4th generation of the McKee family to the business.
The legacy of McKee Foods continues, as an example of two young people working diligently and passionately to fulfill their dream, an American dream! It is with great pleasure that the kosher consumer can now enjoy this treat!
