Pop Tarts are the ‘breakfast’ that kids adore, and adults secretly love! Produced by Kellogg’s, the breakfast experts; Pop Tarts are Kellogg’s most popular brand in America and the flavours are endless.
What is a Pop Tart?
Before we start on what the best Pop Tart flavours are, if you haven’t heard of Pop Tarts, then we have to ask ‘Where have you been for the last 50 or so years? But on the plus side, if you’ve never had a Pop Tart then you’re in for a real treat.
Pop Tarts were created in 1964 in the United States and are a pastry that can be toasted! Pop Tarts have a flavoured sugary filling sealed inside two layers of thin, rectangular pastry. They are perfect for a quick and easy American style breakfast; all you have to do is choose what flavour you want.
Whilst there are Pop Tarts in UK Supermarkets these days, it’s usually limited to Strawberry. Believe us when we say, there’s a lot more Pop Tart flavours than Strawberry! In fact, we think you’ll be gobsmacked by the yummy Pop Tart flavours you can find in the States that you just can't get in supermarkets here, such as Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Frosted Chocolate Fudge and Confetti Cupcake!
How to cook Pop Tarts
Firstly, don’t stress, because when we say ‘cook’ there is just one piece of kitchen equipment required and most children can operate it safely – the toaster! Yes, that’s the ‘pop’ part of the name, when it pops out of the toaster! Just follow these simple instructions and insert your Pop Tarts into a toaster for about a minute, then be sure to let them cool for a few seconds before enjoying!
We often get asked, can you eat Pop Tarts cold? Yes, you can, Pop Tarts are already baked, so they are safe to eat without heating for a snack on the go.
What’s your favourite Pop Tart flavour?
Another popular question we hear lots is ‘Where can I buy Confetti Cupcake Pop Tarts?’. This is our bestselling Pop Tart flavour and it’s easy to see why with its sweet vanilla cupcake-flavoured centre topped with white frosting and confetti sprinkles. It's a party in and out of the toaster! Go on, add a box of Confetti Cupcake Pop Tarts to your basket.
Nothing says 'America' more than S’mores, and of course there’s a Frosted S’mores Pop Tart. Check out this Pop Tart S’mores 2 pack or why not just go for the box of 8 S’mores Pop Tarts, you won’t regret it. In fact, many of the Pop Tarts we import from America, come in different sizes, this giant value box of Brown Sugar Cinnamon has 16 Pop Tarts to keep you smiling in the morning!
Cinnamon flavour is an American favourite when it comes to breakfast. We love Frosted Cinnamon Roll Pop Tarts, the tasty sweet pastry is filled with gooey cinnamon flavoured filling and delicious white icing drizzled over the top for a real taste of the States.
