Little Debbie launches effort to ‘share’ snacks with all of America

Little Debbie, the purveyors of junk food favorites such as the Oatmeal Crème Pie and Nutty Bar, is on a mission. A quest if you will, to “share” the company’s high fructose corn syrup filled treats with as many Americans as possible, and they have the corresponding tour and 2011 Airstream Sport travel trailer to prove it.

The “Little Debbie Million Smile Mission Tour” kicks off October 14 in Buffalo, NY, the first stop of a nationwide snack food fest that intends to leave a swath of decay and stomach aches for an entire 8 month period. Bring some antacids, an adjustable belt and keep that 50% off the first month’s membership to the local gym you stowed away

But hey it’s not all weight gain and heart burn at the sugary sweet events.

While destroying your health, vitality and self-esteem you can also enter to win some great prizes. According to Little Debbie:
America's favorite snack cake company starts an eight-month campaign to share snacks and smiles! They'll be giving away hundreds of great prizes, including seasonal treats, digital cameras and even a 2011 Airstream Sport travel trailer.
Little Debbie® snacks is also asking a million people to share their own smiles by uploading pictures of themselves to become part of the national Little Debbie photo mosaic portrait. And to help make it even easier for some lucky Little Debbie® snacks lovers, the Smile Squad will tour the country in the official Airstream Sport travel trailer, stopping along the way to take pictures, show off the Million Smile Mission Tour Travel Trailer and share tasty treats.
Why do I have a feeling that the “Smile Squad” is not sponsored nor approved by the American Dental Association.
