For many years, I have been a regular consumer of Little Debbie snack cakes. When a grocery store where I normally shop began stocking and selling the new single serving sized Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun, I was thrilled. After eating a few of these delicious, chocolate topped pastries, I have decided to write a review of them.
Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun.
The Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is no small item. The net weight of this item is 4.02 ounces (114 grams). According to the product’s nutrition facts label, one pastry counts as one serving. Personally, I think that this serving size is underestimated.
So far, I have eaten at least three of these chocolate iced honey buns and each time, one half to three quarters of a pastry was big enough to satisfy my appetite and sweet cravings. In physical size, this product measures approximately 5″ x 4″.
The suggested retail price that is printed on the front label of the Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is $0.75c and that is the price that I have been paying for each pastry.
I definitely think that this price is reasonable. Most other brands and varieties of packaged snack cakes and pastries sell for more than this price and many of them are not as big or tasty as this item.
The texture of the Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is very appealing. The bun itself is soft, yet appropriately firm and the chocolate icing adds a sense of sweet decadence.
To me, the texture and flavor of this chocolate – iced honey bun are reminiscent of a glazed donut from a donut shop. Its pleasing texture makes it a real treat to eat plain, as well as in conjunction with other items, including ice cream, pudding and whipped cream.

Taste / Flavor
When it comes to flavor, the Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun really delivers. To begin with, the honey bun itself is quite tasty and sweet, but the addition of chocolate icing makes it so much better.
As soon as I tasted one of these pastries, I thought that it tasted just like a Dunkin’ Donuts Chocolate Frosted Donut, which to me, is a good thing. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of 9.5.
The Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is packaged in a clear plastic wrapper. The front label features minimal text and illustration and the rear label lists all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information.
I am a longtime and regular consumer of Little Debbie products and I think that their Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is one of the better Little Debbie items I have tasted. While this item is very reasonably priced, it is also high in saturated fat and total fat. That is one of the reasons that I normally eat only one half of one of these pastries at a time.
The flavor of this honey bun is very good and the texture is quite agreeable. A great product to enjoy with a hot cup of coffee, Little Debbie Chocolate Iced Honey Bun is highly recommended by this food writer.
