OMG; I was eating a Pop Tart just as this link came up!! DREW WALLHAX!!@@%^@!~

Montie says he believes there are two primary reasons for Pop-Tarts' continued growth: Adults who ate them as children continue to eat them as well as feed them to their own children, and Kellogg's aggressive advertising and promotion of the brand.

Once again the stoner market is completely disrespected.

I'm not really sure if I like the taste of jelly on cardboard.
But hey, with enough marketing behind this curious product, I could be convinced.

And every last one of them were created during a single production run in 1963. Gotta love those preservatives.

I still prefer a cup full of lucky charms and milk to get my morining going.
2003-04-05 06:03:44 PM

40's & Pop Tarts = Breakfast of Champions!

Didn't we drop Pop Tarts on Afghanistan?

The frosted ones with strawberry filling.

2003-04-05 06:14:35 PM  
Damn, can you drink a whole 40 of Mickey's? I mean, hell, that stuff gives brutal hangovers.
Now Little Kings is a different story... I remember the night UK won the tourney in '96 I actually drank 3 40's of that stuff. I managed to stay out of both the hospital and jail.
2003-04-05 06:17:18 PM  
I really think they ought to have a frosted apple cinnamon. instead of just the frosted cinnamon.
2003-04-05 06:21:02 PM  
Quaker makes a pop-tart type product. The crust actually tastes like it was made from grain, and the filling actually tastes like it was made from fruit.
2003-04-05 06:33:13 PM  
I know some tarts I'd like to pop.

And that is why Pop Tarts are better. Who needs real food when you have pop tarts, tang and cheetos?
2003-04-05 06:41:12 PM  
They did not look too tempting in the early years.

Anybody remember the S'mores poptarts? They were a friggin' heart attack wedged inside of two pieces of cardboard-like, were those ever good.
2003-04-05 06:43:51 PM  
Get out, the S'Mores ones are the best o the bunch. Cold or hot, after a visit to the garden, I like to settle down with some of those and enjoy.

Problem is, the taste seems to last a loooong time. I cant' taste anything else for hours.

HotDang hits it on the nose with his comment. Salsa Verde Doritos, chocolate milk and a pop tart for dessert.
2003-04-05 06:45:38 PM  
Great minds think alike, BassGuy... I think they still make them... Im off to the store in a bit to find out.
2003-04-05 06:49:53 PM  
"Today, Kellogg offers 28 varieties of Pop-Tarts. The most popular are frosted strawberry, frosted brown sugar cinnamon and S'mores, the company says. "

They gotta still sell them. I am going to have a good evening after all...

paula poundstone used to eat so many of these puppies onstage that kelloggs actually sponsored one of her tours. that was for that 15 minutes that she was actually funny. before she got into the kids thing.

she had a funny bit she did about them is all i'm sayin'.
2003-04-05 07:01:57 PM  
The guy's name is Post. I wonder if he had anything to do with Post Toasties.
2003-04-05 07:04:33 PM  
Pop Tarts are farking gross.
No thanks, no blood pressure sugar od for me today.

Anyone have a link to the Pop Tarts "baaammmmmmmm!" commercial featuring Len's "Man of the year"?
2003-04-05 07:11:00 PM  
From the headline, I thought it was going to be an article about Anna Nicole Smith
2003-04-05 07:17:40 PM  
Bmr68: Actually, for some reason, I found the pictures of the retro Pop Tarts strangely appetizing. I dunno why, but I always liked the unfrosted kind better. Something to do with the filling oozing out of the holes maybe.
2003-04-05 07:18:12 PM  
4NSpy, that commercial makes me not want to buy pop tarts.
2003-04-05 07:19:22 PM  
I don't like the apple cinnamon ones. Too dry.
BTW, Carnage, I have one thing to say: Eugh.
2003-04-05 07:25:09 PM  
Does Mickey's still make 12-oz. "Big Mouths"?
2003-04-05 07:34:09 PM  
If you get tired of eating them you can always try THIS!
2003-04-05 07:35:28 PM  
This story should be read by virtually all people who are wondering why they cannot lost that last 50 pounds.
2003-04-05 07:37:06 PM  
Last time I ate a pop tart, 2 frosted strawberry ones about a year ago or so, the sugar rush was astounding. I swear I was vibrating.
2003-04-05 07:43:08 PM  
Man, I've loved the brown sugar cinamon pop tarts since I was a kid. Worse, I like them best untoasted. A couple of pop tarts and a glass of milk and I'm set.

But something about that page crashes my Opera browser.
2003-04-05 07:51:08 PM  
Many moons ago - back in my impressionable youth - a friend of mine and I came up with stir-fried pop tarts. mmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm... grease-o-licious.

He also "invented" a drink called the Gin Shiat, which involved copies amounts of "Dark Eyes" gin, gatorade, and (or course) a pop tart amongst other things.
2003-04-05 07:54:18 PM  
The fondest memory that I have of my maternal grandfather is sitting at the breakfast table and munching down the Pop-Tarts while he told me stories of his life in early Hollywood and elsewhere.

, but I'd add frosted Blueberry to the bunch.

Best. Breakfast. Treat. Evah.
2003-04-05 07:57:14 PM  
c/copies/copius. arrrrgh.
2003-04-05 08:09:05 PM  
Pop tarts are great, but those oatmeal thingies are better.
They're pretty much pop-tart clones, essentially, but they taste better and are probably healthier.
2003-04-05 08:28:02 PM  
Mmm. Chocolate Chip Pop-Tarts will soon be the reigning champs. When it doesn't even taste like chocolate, you know it's good.
2003-04-05 08:28:07 PM  
Don't those things cause cancer or somehting?
2003-04-05 08:31:49 PM  
When I had mono, I ate nothing but brown sugar cinnamon pop-tarts for 6 weeks. EVERYTHING else tasted funny.
2003-04-05 08:31:55 PM  
Will you at least warn us a few posts ahead before you show that farking picture!!! I would like to keep at least one meal down a day. And it's not going to be a meal of Pop Tarts now! THANK YOU!
2003-04-05 08:33:49 PM  
mahahahah! the mad-hatter strikes again!
2003-04-05 08:43:27 PM  
1. That picture is completely digusting
2. Pop-tart sticks are pretty good too, although nothing in comparision to the real pop-tarts.
