Apparently, one of them has got to go.

Honey Buns. Nutty Buddy. Oatmeal Creme Pies. Christmas Tree Cakes.

Little Debbie announced in a tweet on Wednesday that “One Gotta Go Forever.”

Which one?

Not the Nutty Buddies! We use them for our #CysticFibrosis patients on #Kalydeco and #Orkambi and our clinical trial drugs to help with drug absorption! @CF_Foundation #SaveTheNuttyBuddy

The first one that says Christmas trees gets a lump of coal.

Some were shocked that Little Debbie would do away with a favorite.

Why must you hurt us in this way? It's like trying to pick which child to send away forever! #keepthemall

One commenter expressed doubt anything would actually happen.

Look at Little Debbie trolling us. There is no way one of the fine items is being discontinued. I can not believe people are voting to kill Honey Buns. That's crazy.

Little Debbie then tweeted again Thursday morning, repeating what the previous day’s post hinted.

We didn't say it would be easy. #OneGottaGo

There’s no word yet on when a decision will be announced.
