It’s a choice no one wants to make, especially not one of the nation’s largest snack cake manufacturers.

Little Debbie announced on Wednesday that one of its beloved treats will have to go away. The announcement came through a series of Tweets.

The first Tweet, with the hashtag “One Gotta Go Forever” showed a photo of Oatmeal Creme Pies, Nutty Buddies, Honey Buns and the seasonal Christmas Tree Cakes.

The Tweet received so many replies that the company sent out a second one saying, “We didn’t say it would be easy. #OneGottaGo.”

And fans of the snack cakes had some very strong opinions.

The Tennessee-based company, which is owned by McKee Foods, made no mention of the dilemma on its website.

Al.com reports that the news could be especially bad for Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban, who is known to be a fan of the Oatmeal Creme Pies. ESPN’s Marty Smith even posted a photo on his Twitter account of Saban’s secret stash.

So, which one could you live without? The old fashioned Oatmeal Creme Pie? The classic Honey Bun? The retro Nutty Buddy? Or, the seasonal Christmas Tree Cakes?
