Recommended Posts

Havent had one in who know hows long, but Ive had a few beers and am ready to try them again....

This one has white frosting...are you suppossed to but butter on these things before or after you put them in the toaster?

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!

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. 

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:

Try lighting m&m's sometime too! Always worked like a charm for me when I was bored.

They don't make my favourite anymore - graham cracker crust with chocolate filling.

But the unfrosted brown sugar cinnamon is good too. Especially as an instant pastry crust. Topped with vanilla ice cream and apple sauce - instant hot apple pie a la mode. And sometimes microwaved chocolate chip sauce drizzled over.

Am I really the only one who puts butter on their Pop tarts?

I put it on the frosting and then on the bottom...sometimes Ill even put Tabasco sauce then on top of it...I can see where some might find that gross... :smile:

I like to eat the outer unfrosted crust, then split the top and bottom layers, eating the bottom layer first-always.

Butter your pop tart all you want-I'm not here to judge. :smile:

Considering the fact that I was born with a freakishly strong sweet tooth, I always preferred the chocolate frosted s'more one, the strawberry frosted, and recently I tried the cookies and cream stix one...not that great but sure does satisfy that sugar craving in a pinch :smile:

Resurrecting an ancient discussion to say I spotted a new flavor in my local Walmart: Pumpkin.

Has anyone tried them? Are they part of the "pumpkin spice" bandwagon? Or are they just pumpkin?

They also had Halloween-themed frosted Pop Tarts with orange icing in the shape of a carved pumpkin/scary face. I wasn't sure what the flavor was...chocolate probably.

 

I all but gave up buying them in general because the Pop Tarts I bought at Walmart seemed like they had been tossed around in a football game. They were all broken and once they break, the filling "seeps" out, making the Pop Tart soft and gooey-ish. >:( Meh.

I haven't seen the pumpkin Pop Tarts yet but I saw (and resisted) a Trader Joe's version yesterday. 

I also noticed a whole "pumpkin spice" end cap display at Whole Foods.  It's taking over the earth!

Honesty, I think they changed the crust formula about 15 years ago and I haven't been able to eat them since.

Toaster Strudels (frozen) are way better than Pop Tarts.
