- Plural of yodel
- third-person singular of yodel
Yodels are frosted, cream-filled cakes that are made by the Drake's company, which is owned by the Interstate Bakeries Corporation. Yodels are distributed on the east coast of the United States. They are similar to HoHos, which are made by Hostess (also a brand of Interstate Bakeries Corporation).
Each plastic package of Yodels contains three cakes, totaling 440 calories and three grams of saturated fat. Yodels are also sold in a boxes containing five or eight individually wrapped pairs of cakes (a total of ten or 16). Formerly Yodels used a different formula, with thicker, denser cake and came packaged in foil. This was changed by the late 80s to the current recipe and packaging.
The snacks were featured in the movie Click, in which the main character (played by Adam Sandler) becomes extremely fat after eating Yodels for ten years.
In the episode The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons of The Simpsons, Homer Simpson is forced to choose between buying a Yodel or a winning lottery ticket. He ultimately chooses the Yodel.
