"Those things are bad for you!"

Swiss Cake Rolls are frosted, cylindrical chocolate cakes with a cream swirl inside. As such, they are a favorite snack food in Free Country, USA and in the real world, too. Sometimes they are treated as characters.

Although other companies make a similar product (e.g. Hostess Ho Hos), Little Debbie Snacks makes a cake with the name Swiss Rolls (Swiss Cake Rolls at the time most of these toons were made).

In Strong Badia the Free, they are called "Creamy Ding Snack Cakes" to avoid copyright issues.
