Price: about 3 bucks
Description: Brownies topped with M&M’s
I don’t have a whole lot to say about this. They tasted exactly the way I expected them to taste.
They’re like Little Debbie brownies. The only major differences are the size and the wrapper.
The Hostess brownies seem a little bigger, volume wise. But they feel lighter than the Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies. I mean that with regards to weight in the hand as well as density-wise. So basically Hostess is bigger and fluffier. Little Debbie is tighter and heavier.
Also, the Hostess brownies have full size M&Ms on top. The Little Debbies have mini M&M knockoffs on top.
Hostess has a thicker, non-transparent wrapper. Little Debbie has the clear wrappers. I think the Hostess box is slightly more aesthetic. By the way, I don’t care about the wrapper differences at all. It’s just that the two products are so similar to me, that this actually stands out.
When it comes to the actual brownies, I like the two brands equally.
But I think Little Debbie is the better value. A box of 6 Hostess brownies costs almost three bucks, whereas a box of 6 Little Debbie brownies is about 2 bucks.
