They don't sell these things in Ireland. Myself and the partner found a packet for sale in a shop for some reason, and decided to buy them. Cookie dough flavour.


They're ok. Like a giant biscuit. What is the point of them though? Are they a snack? Dessert? Breakfast?

Also, the label included loads of stuff about how they use GMOs and additives that harm children? Is that on the label in the US, or is it an EU thing (they were as part of a massive sticker, not the original packaging).

Ive only had poptarts 2 or 3 times, last time I was in Florida about 8 years ago. I liked them a lot, but they were advertised as breakfast items and eating that kind of stuff for breakfast is weird.

I think they'd be best as evening snacks or desserts

We get them in the UK and I know of people using them as breakfast. I literally can't eat them, they give me a crazy achey head/jaw/teeth thing. Way too sweet.


Where can you get them from? I've always meant to keep an eye out for them but never have
I have nothing important to say

Just supermarkets, Tesco and Sainsbury's definitely do them. If you're in Southampton I think there's one of those American shops if you fancy spending triple the RRP

I'll have to check out the local Tesco/Sainsburys. Normally I only ever shop for booze and sweets, which is probably why I've never noticed poptarts anywhere before.

S'mores are really the only flavor worth eating. And they are more like a dessert imo.

Also I find this both hilarious and disturbing. That is definitely not on the box in the US

There's a few good flavors, they taste best frozen. Toaster Strudels are much better though.

I love the s'mores flavor. I used to eat them for breakfast everyday. It's a bit easy to find here.

Wow they actually require them to put "harms children"? You might as well put a skull and crossbones on the box..

pop tarts are a thing i buy for a quick emergency breakfast, then eat the whole box in one sitting and proceed with extreme self-loathing.

Not arsed to go find the box, but it was something about it containing ingredients that can harm their attention span.


Quick google shows that it's related to this:

Since the 20th July 2010, food and drink containing sunset yellow (E 110), quinoline yellow (E 104), carmoisine (E 122), allura red (E 129), tartrazine (E 102) or ponceau 4R (E 124) is required to display the following warning message: “Name or E number of the colour(s) (e.g. Sunset Yellow): may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children.”

The warning label for these six colours, often referred to as the ‘Southampton colours’, was included in Article 24 of  Regulation 1333/2008  on food additives.

Alright foreigners...here's the story on Pop Tarts. They were originally intended to be heated in toasters, hence the shape (perfect for toasters). When they are warm they aren't as hard, and the fruity insides get softer (and tastier).

You can eat them straight out of the package, but they are just like cookies if unheated.

Are there other ways of heating them? I've never not used a toaster.

I stand corrected. Guess I've never bought anything with those additives

Sure. You can heat them up on a rack in the oven if you like. Just a guesstimate, but I'd say that 5 minutes at about 240 degrees should work without burning them.
#37
you can wrap 'em in foil and put 'em on your engine. keeps them warm for a while too.

snack for later

What is the point of them though?

Breakfast. They are to give ur kid when u don't feel like/have time to make a real breakfast. For some, that's everyday.

At ate them from 1980 - 1992, they were significantly better tasting than they are now. I bet they were even better before my time.

The goal is to keep turning profits, not to be an especially delicious treat.

Ah yes, for when cereal + milk in a bowl is too taxing.

I can't stand them. Too sweet

Is there even one person on this earth who has been seriously harmed or brain damaged by Pop Tarts? No.

Are you feeling brain damaged now that you've eaten one?

But your govt actually spends its money to print out stickers to scare people away from fatty foods.
