    A popular snack food brand is publishing cryptic hints that it could be eliminating one of its treats from store shelves.

    Tennessee-based Little Debbie's social media team tweeted Wednesday a photo of four desert cakes — Christmas Tree cakes, Oatmeal Creme Pies, Honey Buns and Nutty Buddy bars — with the caption, "one gotta go forever..."

    The post quickly gained thousands of comments, with people offering rather passionate opinions on which cake should be axed.

    The next day, a second tweet followed up, "We didn't say it would be easy."

    McKee Foods, Little Debbie's parent company, hasn't offered an announcement and has not yet said how a decision would be made.
