You Can’t Find Any Little Debbie Products In Juneau Alaska

Little Debbie

It’s True! I have lived here for nearly four years now. I have been inside every store in Juneau at least once looking for Swiss Cake Rolls, Cosmic Brownies, or Chocolate Chip Snack Cakes with no luck. It’s quite sad. My Fiancé takes this a little harder then I do. Chocolate of course, is one of the things she loves.

Luckily for us, we have caring families who from time to time send us a care packages from the lower 48 states with (among other things) Little Debbie products. We very carefully ration them out to last as long as possible.

It’s very puzzling to us why no stores in Juneau carry any Little Debbie products at all. It’s been a topic of quit a few conversations between us, and friends, and family.

[UPDATE: 12.10.2012]

Since the fall of Hostess and the loss of the beloved Twinkies a couple of weeks ago, stores in Juneau have started caring Little Debbie Products. I noticed this last Saturday in our local Fred Meyer. I was able to pick up some cosmic Brownies and Swiss Rolls for my cheat day. It was so tasty!

  1. Youseph,

    Greetings from the Little Debbie social media team!

    Thanks for your post, and I’m sorry you’ve had a hard time finding Little Debbie snacks in Alaska. I e-mailed our sales manager for your region to learn more.

    He said we have a distributor in Anchorage who helps stock Little Debbie snacks as far north as Fairbanks and as far south as Homer. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get a reliable distributor for southeast Alaska communities such as Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka.

    But, he assured me, “I’m not going to give up trying.”

    Thanks again for your post. All my best,

  3. Glad to hear Little Debbie has finally made it to your neck of the woods. I had a feeling they would enjoy a nice boost in sales once Hostess went kaput. In fact, the morning that Hostess announced they were shutting down, I immediately started researching Little Debbie as a possible investment opportunity, figuring their numbers were about to surge. Much to my disappointment, I found out that their parent company is privately held. Bummer.
