Greetings! Welcome to another edition of the Laidback Gourmet, the only blog that so cool its hot, so hot it’s cool. Today we’ll be looking at a brand new flavor of a childhood favorite. Today we’ll be looking at “Ice Cream Sandwich” flavored Kellogs Pop Tarts.
This is part of their new line of ice cream shoppe flavors of poptarts. On the shelf you would find Vanilla Shake, Strawberry Shakes, Chocolate Shakes, as well as the flavor we’ll be reviewing today. Let’s open the box and take a look at what we got. First of all let’s take a look at this wrapper.
In case you can’t quite see, it’s a cartoon character wearing many hats saying, “So Many Hats, so Little Time”. What this has to do with pop tarts or how this makes me want to eat pop tarts is anyone’s guess. Also, what kind of freak has that many hats? That’s just ridiculous.
Ahem… moving on then. Let’s open up the wrapper, (and after heating it up of course) let’s see what this tart looks like.
Pretty standard looking poptart, though the icing seems to be a bit off center. That happens I suppose. Looks like a chocolate flavored crust…
…with a cream filling. I suppose that makes sense if these are going to emulate an ice cream sandwich. I cannot wait to taste my childhood so let’s eat this thing already before it gets cold on me.
*Om Nom Nom*
Interesting. Sweet, but then Pop Tarts always were a little too sweet. The thing is… I don’t think these taste ANYTHING like an ice cream sandwich. Don’t get me wrong, they’re not bad tasting, but if you handed these to me and said, “guess the flavor” I don’t think I’d ever guess their actual flavor. They taste a bit more like… I don’t know… more of a chocolate cookie or pie or something. I’ll give them a 6/10. I don’t think they’re anything special and they don’t really taste anything like what they’re advertised to taste like.
But hey… heating them is only ONE way to eat a pop tart. If I recall correctly the other popular way to eat them is to freeze them and eat them. Let’s give that a try and see if it improves the taste.
Don’t get any colder than that! Let’s take a bite.
*Om Nom Nom*
Honestly, I don’t think that improves the taste at all. In fact I think it loses something not being all warm and gooey. This might be just a personal preference thing but I think being frozen actually ends up hurting the score, 5/10 when eaten cold.
