Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes are available for Christmas in July!

Like a phoenix rising up from the ashes of last December’s Douglas Fir, Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes are back on shelves for a limited time at Walmart.

We’re not sure what we’ve done to deserve such an unexpected treat in the middle of a typically unbearable Southern summer, but we dare not question the motives of our snack cake queen, Little Deborah.

As is tradition, the brightly colored boxes feature the likeness of Kris Kringle, but his usual Christmas-filled surroundings have been replaced with a tropical paradise that we can only assume is Gulf Shores, Alabama, because, let’s face it, any Santa that chooses to chow down on snack cakes while relaxing on the beach is a bonafide Southern Saint Nicholas.

Little Debbie’s Christmas Tree Cakes are available while supplies last.
