Little Debbie Logo Changes So Subtle You’d Hardly Know the Difference
Yahoo! Finance ^ | 6 hours ago | By Caroline Kim | The Exchange

Posted on 05/07/2013 5:06:06 PM PDT by F15Eagle

The Little Debbie Snacks logo for McKee Foods has received a new look, but the changes are so subtle the company is asking its Facebook (FB) fans to find the differences.

The dessert-snack company announced the new look on May 2 and asked its 1.6 million fans to note the changes in the comments. So far, over 2,200 people have commented, and most have guessed right. Can you see the differences below?

The changes include:

Little Debbie is wearing a more modern plaid shirt with a different shade of blue and a “Peter Pan” collar instead of a pointed collar.

Her hair is darker and less curly.

Debbie still dons a hat but the hat string is removed.

The red ribbon on the package also has a more updated look.

And now for some important news.

But, humor break, one guy's comment is priceless:

"I have a dream! That one day ALL Debbies will be judged, not by their Peter Pan collars or the string in her hat, but the sugar content of her snack cakes! Free at last!"

LOL... I understand little tweaks to modernize the branding, however, I am snickering at how much they paid marketing firms to come up with this and imagine the meetings coming up with these changes.

Little Debbie only makes one thing that I like, but I REALLY like ‘em: the cherry mallow sandwiches only made during the Valentine’s Day season.

If there’s a wind, her hat will blow off.

That's true. Could be very dangerous for any banana snack cake. When the Twinkies are down, sometime ya go for something else.

I bought some of those and they really were good. The main reason I tried them was they were one of the cheaper ones.

I eat a lot of them, not that I like them all that much but they are one of the few things I can snack on at night and they seem to calm my stomach a bit.

Shoulders just a little bit wider (especially Debbie’s left shoulder).

Eyebrows softer, more natural.

Hair more natural, less “permed” looking.

Debbie’s right nostril just a bit less visible.

Cheek dimple de-emphasized.

Fewer rows of stitching on hat brim visible in new Debbie.

Fewer stitches visible in top part of hat, to (our) left of the blurry region right at the top of the hat brim.

One “S” stitch emphasized at 10 o’clock position of Debbie’s hat brim for some reason. Emphasis not present in older images.

Debbie’s chin noticeably more round, less child-like.

Distinct shadow from Debbie’s chin and jaw is visible on her lapel. This shadow is indistinct on the 1985 image.

Their new logo should be “We still make Twinkies, they’re just called Cloud Cakes” (don’t ask me how I know)

The plaid pattern, when viewed under black light, spells out “OBAMA 2016”...

I bet you’re a blast with that “Spot the Differences” comic strip (I forgot what it’s called)...I always call the little copyright date block as a “difference.”

No doubt the biggest change isn’t physical appearance. There is probably a new backstory to “Little Debbie” that involves her “Genderqueeredness”.

It’s a wonder they haven’t completely removed Little Debbie from their logo. I live in the area, not far from where Debbie has or had a house.

She is reputed to like girls. That is all I will say. The do make good cookies!

Be glad they didn’t make her “gay”. Then you couldn’t talk about how good Little Debby’s cakes are.

PS: Their Pecan Rolls are good, and moist. So are the Chocolate Rolls.

On the left we have the latest Aunt Jemima...

Aunt-Jemima Anne-Holt

On the right Middle Tennessee news-woman Anne Holt.

Methinks Anne should shake some oats out of the Quaker Company for image use.
