What goes into making an iconic treat? In the case of Little Debbie® Fudge Rounds, it's delicious fudge creme sandwiched between two chewy fudge cookies and topped with a trademark wave of fudge icing. But what really makes Fudge Rounds iconic is the ubiquitous cookie's 40 years of bringing smiles to the faces of generations of Americans.

"At the time when Little Debbie Fudge Rounds were first introduced, there was no other cookie like it on the market," said Thomas Mossbeck, Little Debbie product manager. "The consumer response to Fudge Rounds has remained very strong over the years. It didn't take long for Fudge Rounds to join the ranks of our most popular Little Debbie varieties."

To help celebrate this momentous anniversary, Little Debbie is offering the Music History VIP Experience Giveaway. Winners will be given an intimate guided journey through all four floors of the Grammy Museum, providing detailed insight into the world's biggest music award show and most coveted accolade. Experience a firsthand look at original hand written material and enjoy the opportunity to play instruments, mix, record and sing in an interactive environment! Trip for two to L.A. with airfare and accommodations included. Enter the giveaway and see full details and giveaway rules at
