United States

Little Debbie Zebra Cake

Snack cakes can be found in many American supermarkets and convenience stores, sold either individually or by the box. Examples include Drake's Devil Dogs, Twinkies and zebra cakes. Well-known American manufacturers of snack cakes include Hostess, Little Debbie, Dolly Madison, and Drake's. In 2004, the snack-cake industry in the US experienced major consolidation, which resulted in fewer products being offered to consumers.[1] For example, Dolly Madison zingers, Hostess brand Twinkies, and Drake's coffee cakes were all solely produced by the now-defunct Interstate Bakeries Corporation.[1]

United Kingdom

Jaffa cakes are a popular type of biscuit-like snack cake in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
