Sugary Breakfast “Pastry”Pop-Tarts Introduced in 1964

Pop-Tarts. Yes or no?

Since 1964.  They come in a foil sleeve in a box from the grocery shelf.  Steve was given a box of Pop-Tarts (Strawberry) and he put two in the toaster. The hot bubble-gum flavor aroma alerted me that something was up in the kitchen. When they came out, he put them on the plate, and showed me.  I said “Wait, don’t bite it yet. Let me photograph them.”  They are from the same era as Tang, an orange powdered breakfast drink that the astronauts were supposedly consuming.

Sugary is the word. There are 18g of sugar in a serving. Here’s a CBS News article  Pop-Tarts

Pop-Tarts is a brand of toaster pastries that the Kellogg Company introduced in 1964. Pop-Tarts have a sugary filling sealed inside two layers of thin, rectangular pastry crust. Most varieties are also frosted. Although sold pre-cooked, they are designed to be warmed inside a toaster or microwave oven”     Wikipedia

  1. I haven’t had one of those in years, but I remember there were a few flavours our family liked when I brought a package home as a treat!

  2. I loved them as a kid. I had one about 15 years ago, and man – it was a combo of cardboard and sugar. Not good.
