Advantages: Tasty, chocolately and great for the sweet tooth
Disadvantages: Only 8 in a pack
So I was wandering down the cereal aisle in my local Tesco and this small box caught my eye, hiding among the corn flakes and the shreddies was these little boxes of tasty chocolatey sweet goodness. My local tesco only stocked two flavours, one of which is Frosted Choctastic and the other Strawberry sensation, these two boxes are priced at £2.15 for 4 pairs of pop tarts.
However I did check online on tesco groceries and they have more flavours available such as, Cookies and Creme, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Hot fudge sundae and Brown Sugar and Cinnamon, all of which are £1.35 more expensive than the two stocked at my local tesco, the ones online are £3.50. I also did nip into a local shop here that sells american goodies and they had pop tarts, a flavour called S'mores, which I promptly bought, these are marshmallow and milk chocolate with a milk chocolate topping, they were being sold at this small shop in Scunthorpe for £4. I also checked Amazon to see which were available and you can purchase Chocolate Fudge, Cherry, Cinammon Roll, Confetti Cupcake, Raspberry, Wild Berry, Wild Grape, Cookie Dough, Strawberry and Strawberry Milkshake to name a few. They are however very highly priced on amazon, anywhere from £3.99 upwards.
So overall in the my cupboard as I speak I have three boxes of 8 Poptarts. The three flavours that I have are S'mores, Cookies and Creme and Frosted Choctastic. S'mores as I mentioned before are rows of milk chocolate and marshmallow wrapped up in the yummy biscuit, covered in a layer of milk chocolate, generously smeared onto the top of the biscuit. The marshmallow and the chocolate become runny once heated and blend together to create a taste sensation in your mouth.
The other flavours I own are Cookies and Creme, layers of Oreo resembling cookie and cream inside the buiscuit of a pop tart. There is also a layer of the cream like substance on top of the pop tart with a chocolatey coating sprinkled onto the top. The biscuit of this pop tart however is chocolate and is a dark brown colour compared to others which are beige. The last flavour I own are the ones from my local tesco, Frosted Choctastic. These pop tarts have a milk chocolate biscuit base, filled with a darker more rich chocolate filling, then topped with yet more milk chocolate in a layer smeared onto the biscuit and covered with a white chocolate sprinkling.
The packaging for these pop tarts is a small rectangular tall dark blue box, weighing a total of 400g, which equals to 50g per pop tart. The boxes have the Kelloggs branding on the top left hand corner of the box, and the writing Pop Tarts in large white lettering on the front of the packaging, this is so it stands out and is obviously noticed. The box then has a small banner with the flavour written on, the banner is different colours so it is set to represent the flavour of the pop tart that you are eating, for instance blueberry is blue, the choctasic flavour is brown. Under this banner you then have a picture of a pop tart, the flavour that you are eating, the picture has the top missing so you can see all the filling oozing out the pop tart.
On the sides of the packaging are all the regular information, such as the nutritional information, which states that each choctastic pop tart is 198kcal, totally 396 kcal for each sealed pack of two. The other side of my box of pop tarts has an advertisement for other Kelloggs cereal. The back of the box is the same as the front, with the name, the banner and the logo featuring an open pop tart. Inside the box you get four packs of individually sealed pop tarts, each sealed in a foil wrapper for extra freshness, this is to keep the taste and the flavour locked in.
To cook my pop tarts all I really do without sounding patronising is get them out of their packaging and pop them into the toaster. I pop one into each side and let them cook, I just leave them for the same time I leave my toast and this means they come out warm and the inside all fused together. The pop tarts have never burnt in my toaster and I have the toaster set to number 3. I eat my pop tarts on their own with nothing added, in my opinion this is the only way to eat a pop tart. The pop tart itself is very sweet no matter what flavour you have, two of these pop tarts are definitely enough as anymore would leave you feeling quite sickly as they contain a lot of sugar, 17g in each pop tart.
Overall I would suggest buying the pop tart as a sweet treat for yourself or your children, I would however not use this as a breakfast alternative. I would use as a snack, or supper before bed. This is because it is quite filling but not filling enough to keep you going until dinner. I would definitely recommend the frosted choctastic pop tarts from Tesco as a starter to test if you like them, because £3.50 is a lot of money if you are unsure and need to throw them away. They are definitely a tasty alternative to any breakfast cereal.
Summary: A great sweet and tasty breakfast variant to the everyday breakfast cereal.
