The Pop-Tart is a timeless American breakfast treat that celebrated its 50th anniversary last year! Whether it be pulled out of an ice-cold freezer on a warm summer day, or tossed piping hot to a middle-schooler on his way to the bus stop, this classic “fruit-filled” pastry will forever be found in the kitchens of American homes. After looking over numerous polls and surveys, I’ve compiled a list of the most popular Pop-Tart varieties that will always have a spot in our sweet tooth.
1. Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon
Originally released in 1967, this will always be a fan favorite. A combination of so many irresistible ingredients will always make our mouths water.
2. Frosted S’mores
Thankfully put on the shelves in 1992, S’mores takes second place. The chocolate and marshmallow filling in a flaky, graham cracker crust gives you that warm campfire feeling.
3. Frosted Cookies & Creme
A chocolate cookie crust, white frosting, and cookie crumbles makes this a delicious treat. The vanilla filling, frozen or toasted, will bring your taste buds to the edge of their seats.
4. Frosted Strawberry
This classic has been around since 1963 and will continuously be a staple of what Pop-Tarts stand for. The rainbow sprinkles and strawberry fruit filling sell the product with no advertising needed whatsoever.
5. Hot Fudge Sundae
Released in 2006, my personal favorite sports a chocolate crust, fudge and vanilla icing, and vanilla filling topped off with colorful sprinkles. It has 25% less fat and is notoriously served best with a big scoop of ice cream.
6. Frosted Chocolate Chip
Chocolate chips paired with gooey chocolate filling goes best with a tall glass of milk. In my book, this beauty is the most dunkable of the line. Now go raid your pantries and toss any one of these mouth-watering pastries in the toaster oven, America!
