Errmm dude, I don't think you're supposed to put butter on Pop Tarts. Unless you're Anna Nicole Smith, of course.

butter on pop tarts?

eeeewwwww! :wacko:

I like them best straight out of the box! no toaster for me.

I almost cried the first time I gave my (born and raised in Japan) children a pop tart and they didn't like it.

How could they not love it? I begged for them as a child :sad:

They didn't like kool-aid either.

I see these both as good things now! :biggrin:

I remember an apple poptart with maple syrup frosting on the outside. What can I say? I didn't know better then...

A father of 4 KNOWS his pop-tarts. As far as butter on pop-tarts go, it's quite good on the unfrosted brown sugar cinnamon variety that has been heated. The butter is a nice contrast to the overly sweet filling. That's pretty much the only way Mrs. Varmint will eat a pop-tart.

LOL. Agreed.

Butter does not belong on frosted Pop-Tarts. Unfrosted, perhaps. Not frosted.

It looks like you should be wary of toasting them, at least the strawberry one's. :unsure:

Advice from Fire Marshall Bill: Do not butter said 'Tarts before placing them in the toaster. :shock: The ensuing grease fire will toast more than your tasty pastry!

Maybe you shouldn't drink beer before toasting them either.

Beer with poptarts? Have you gone mad? The only correct pairing is a big

glass of Tang, freshly mixed of course!

That flaming pop tart is no joke, a roomate of mine put one in the toaster and then went to the restroom for a minute. When he came back, there were 2 foot flames coming from the toaster. Stupid pop tart. :raz:

A couple of cheesy-looking off-brand Pop Tarts emerging from the toaster are what caused Butch Coolidge to ventilate Vincent Vega's chest with several rounds from a .45 caliber Mac-10 submachine gun. I'm not implying that Vincent would be alive today if Butch ate cheerios instead of Pop Tarts, just that the sound of them popping are what did Vincent in at that exact moment. Butch would have shot him anyway moments later.

awbrig,

If I were you I would go with the pop-tart sticks. They seem to be less dry.

Nono. Mountain Dew and Pop Tarts is the breakfast of champions. You can feel your teeth rotting out of your head as you eat.

I like the blueberry and raspberry frosted Pop Tarts best. But they are, in fact, way the hell too sweet so I only eat them once or twice a year.

This happened to my little sister when she was about five. The toaster was sitting on the lower level of a two tier glass trolley. When the flames shot up, it heated up the glass surface of the top tier. Shattered glass went flying and the flames even shot up higher. I threw water on it (yes, a no-no for electrical fires, but I was 11 and panicking!), pulled out the plug, and surveyed the damage. My only thought was how to cover this up so mom wouldn't find out. We cleaned everything up, and hoped that she wouldn't notice that the trolley arrangement looked a bit different. Kids.. :wink:

Since we're on the topic of flaming snack foods, visit http://www.twinkiesproject.com and click on the "Rapid Oxidation" link. :shock:

Please note that no toaster was involved. :rolleyes:

Um, yes but we were hoping creative draping and arrangement of items would somehow hide it for a while...what were we thinking.

I noticed a few years ago that the instructions for microwaving a pop tart call for 3 seconds on high. I thought this was a typo so I called customer service. It is indeed 3 seconds. Apparently there'd been some burns reported from scalding filling caused by over heating in the microwave (the filling gets hotter than the pastry).
