Poor poor poptarts.

After polishing-off the last two raspberry poptarts in my cupboard tonight I got to wondering how the endless battle of poptarts vs. toasters strudel has been developing..

Last I checked the commercials were still the same:
The poor deprived kid with the deadbeat mother was secretly getting magnificent, delicious toaster strudels from another kid at school who had a really hip, awesome mom.

But it’s been a few years..

So after some extensive reseach
(2 google searches and 5 minutes of reading)
My professional opinion of the general public is this:

People like poptarts. But once they go strudel, there’s no turnin back.

Not me.

I agree that toasters strudels are better than poptarts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a sweet, simple poptart
Don’t think of it as lame..
you should instead think of it as …humble?

p.s. you are supposed to butter the unfrosted side of poptarts, just like toast – it makes a world of difference!

What would happen if a poptart and a toaster strudel had a baby together??

    I had no idea that you were suppose to butter the unfrosted side of a toasted pop-tart…
    Oddly enough, I have wondered about the love child between a pop-tart and a toaster strudel. I asked my friends (who are also fond of random discussions) and we have come to the conclusion that the love child would be flaky like a strudel and be pre-frosted like a pop-tart…and it would be called the Strutart. Hoght I would pass that along.

    The thought of buttering Pop Tarts has never once crossed my mind. Now that I think about it, it sounds pretty American.

    And delicious. Makes me want to run out and buy some just to try it.

      Yeah that had crossed my mind that it was very American.
      I asked a few people if they had ever heard of buttering poptarts and they said no..
      then I wondered if the poptart people had intended for people to do so or if us butter-lovin Americans just decided to “pump up the flavor…?”
      I should write to the poptart people.

    so i think you would end up with a poppintroodle if a pop tart and toaster strudel did it
