SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Little Debbie P.B. Richies

Little Debbie P.B. Richies

This has got me thinking about Hostess. Why don’t they offer their Cup Cakes, Ho Hos, and Ding Dongs with a peanut butter creme? I’d like to think they’d make a few million dollars if they did that. Also, I wonder who’d win in a fight: Mr. Peanut or that crowned peanut mascot on the box. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)

  1. Show me the Peanut Butter….! There was a cake called Funny Bones when I was growing up….I loved them..! Where are they now….? I agree with the writer…..We can see if they come out with Peanut butter cream filled cakes they would make millions….! Where is the Peanut butter….! WE want it now….! Bring back Funny Bones….!

    1. Funny Bones are back! I just bought a box at Target last week; I was so excited to see them on the shelf. However, I’m not sure that they’re as good as they used to be though – they seemed drier than I remembered (or maybe/probably they changed the recipe?)

    2. I grew up with funny bones also, they are an east coast thing.I live in the west now and discovered pb richies and love them. My daughter flew back to the east and brought back funny bones so we could compare and to tell you the truth I like Richies better. because the outer shell is softer. but with eyes closed you really can’t tell much. Mckee foods puts out both brands also. Maybe thats why they tast the same. But now I can’t find them in stores anywhere. I was getting them at walmart but they stopped carrying them,nope at safeway and QFC also and forget about mom and pop stores. Just when you find something you like they get rid if it.

  2. Little Debbie bought Drake’s Cakes, so that’s probably why they came out with the peanut butter filled cakes under their own name too. I don’t recommend mailing these to anyone, the PB creme tends to “evaporate” in transit.

  3. I don’t understand the calorie count. Funny Bones had 310 calories for 2 cakes, and theses are basically the exact same thing. The PB Richies have 330 calories per cake, which makes 2, 660 calories. This can’t be possible. Either way, These are equally as delicious as Funny Bones and a little more moist. Funny Bones got drier over the years for some reason. I found mine at Walmart in NC.

    1. Yes! I agree with the calorie count! I couldn’t believe how much it was which is why I just researched it. I thought maybe it was a misprint on the box. Their so small!! I won’t be buying them again for that reason. Wish I had paid attention when I had boughten them.
