While reaching for a Little Debbie Honey Bun at a Hartford, Connecticut supermarket last week, I happened to notice a display of Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish sitting next to the honey buns. That was the first time I had seen this item and I immediately decided to purchase one Danish. I must say, I’m very glad that I decided to purchase this snack item and I can’t wait to eat another one of these Danish pastries. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of the Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish.
The net weight of the standard sized Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish is four ounces (113 grams). According to the product’s nutrition label, one Danish pastry counts as one serving. In physical size, this pastry measures approximately 3″ x 5.5″. To be honest, one half of one of these Danish pastries was sufficient to satisfy my appetite and sweet cravings.
The suggested retail price that is printed on the front label of the Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish is $0.99c and that is the price that I paid for one Danish. I definitely think that this price is reasonable. In my estimation, this Danish pastry is delicious, nicely textured and very similar to a bakery produced Danish pastry, which would generally cost more than $0.99c.
The texture of the Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish is very pleasing. The main pastry part of the item is soft, yet appropriately firm and it maintains the same delicate, yet substantial texture that is usually found in bakery prepared Danish pastries.
The pastry features a good amount of real apple filling that includes bite sized pieces of apples and an appealing white icing is drizzled across the top of the pastry. All put together, these components form a tasty item that offers a delightful mouth feel.

Taste / Flavor
For many years, I’ve been a big fan and regular consumer of Little Debbie products. As soon as I saw this new item, I knew it would taste very good. When I began eating this Danish pastry, I thought to myself — has Little Debbie gone upscale ? — Although I like every Little Debbie product I’ve tried, this new item features a flavor (as well as texture and appearance) that is more in line with bakery prepared products, than packaged snack items.
The pastry part of this Apple Cinnamon Danish offers a mellow, lightly sweet taste that provides a great base for the other ingredients. The apple filling is sweet, but not overly sweet and the white icing accentuates the other ingredients nicely.
If you are a fan of bakery – prepared Danish pastry, chances are, you would enjoy eating a Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this Danish pastry a 9 rating.
Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish is packaged in a standard type, plastic snack cake wrapper. The attractive wrapper is predominantly green and clear in color and its design is appealing. The package opens easily and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, the Little Debbie Apple Cinnamon Danish is a delicious, reasonably priced item that is stocked and sold at food retailers across America. Not only do I recommend this item, but I also think it is one of the best Little Debbie items items I have eaten so far.
