    Default How do you eat your Pop Tarts?

    I picked some up for a possible snack today, and I stuck it into our drink box. I heard poptarts are good when frozen (but since we don't have a freezer, the drink box is the next best thing)
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    never heard of eating them frozen.

    my fave way is under the broiler, then slather some butter on top. I espeically love the brown sugar cinnamon ones like that.

    My hubby eats them with butter and to too it off with brown sugar and cinnamon on them too!

    My kids eat them straight out of the box or toasted.

    Me? I don't like pop tarts. But I can barely stand maybe for a desert the smores. I bet they would be great frozen.

    But I do like those toaster streudel thingies.

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I think PopTarts are disgusting.

    I think I can count on one hand how many times I've eaten them in my lifetime and even then it was just two or three bites.

    I guess it's because I feel like I'm biting into a sugar coated piece of cardboard. I know they're not that hard to bite into -- I've just always thought they were gross.

    Same with when I bite into an uncooked piece of onion. Blech.

    I don't like them either. We get them in massive amounts at Costco for the girls to pack for school snax and for when we hike. To me they are too sweet and the pastry isn't really worth the added calories to me. So I give them a miss. Not that a Kasha or a Zone bar taste any better.

    On Alton Brown's Good Eats series, there is an episode called "A Pie in Every Pocket" in which he describes all kinds of pocket pies, including toaster pastries (like Pop Tarts, but made from scratch and definitely more tasty!). He made them with a chocolate filling. Look pretty ono to me.

    There's a product I grew up with in South Jersey called TastyKakes; I loved their pies, butterscotch krimpetts, peanutbutter kandykakes and juniors. Their pies were fat rectangles flowing with filling--depending what was in season. Blueberry, rhubarb, chocolate eclair, lemon (my favorite!) and coconut. There was also cherry, apple, peach (yum!); oh my this is right before supper! I'm torturing myself! Anyway, they tried to market in Hawaii but the distance didn't do the product justice. And I think there are enough of us from the Delaware Valley who longed for them while they were on local store shelves, but our thighs spoke louder than our taste buds!

    You can count me in on your take. Don't think I've ever been able to finish one, let alone the two that come in one foil/paper package.

    (IIRC!!!) The pastry crust has this "doughy-pasty" flavor that, even after baked still tastes uncooked, along with some mystery jelly filling that, when heated, turns into "Tongue Napalm".

    Overall, it just doesn't cut the implied convenience, IMO. Maybe not "disgusting", but just NOT good.

    I'm stickin' with good ole' fashioned TOAST.

    I like to spread tuna over my pop tarts, then dip them in a bowl of poi.
