It is probably because I love anything with marshmallows but this is just the best. They also have a seasonal pumpkin flavor out that I know I have tried but completely forget what it tastes like. That might be a sign, right? I DO know that their peppermint flavor (also seasonal) is totally yum and I cannot wait for it to come out.
I read The Impulsive Buy blog and they test things that you see in the store and would never buy yourself BUT are dying to know what they taste like. Last week, they came across Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts. Now, we know that it is that time of year for major pumpkin madness so this fits nicely into the mix. It is pumpkin madness! I myself have already purchased three cans of pumpkin and made muffins.
I figure that Pop Tarts are everyones' secret little treat. It is the guilty pleasure much like The Hills or Jersey Shore (yuck!!). Everyone likes to eat them but no one in their right mind would fess up.
These pumpkin pie ones are pretty tempting. I have heard that the taste and smell is very pumpkin pie like and even the icing is tasty. There are two problems that I have: High Fructose Corn Syrup (the newest of food monsters) and that they only have them in 12 packs.
This is me in the store:
Find the box in the breakfast foods aisle.
Check price. Check how many in box.
Think to myself "No, I don't need 12 of these"
Look on the back of the box for ingredients and nutritional info.
Realize that I am looking at "junk food" and that the prior action is ridiculous.
Look at cart.
Look at box.
Look at back of box again.
Place back on shelf.
Stand in front of box on shelf for at least another two minutes contemplating.
Quickly leave the scene.
And there you have it.
And...despite my blogging about two crazy foods, I do actually eat healthy foods too. I am newly addicted to prepackaged containers of watermelon and cantaloupe for $1 and have rekindled my love for Bagel Thins and reduced fat cream cheese.
Up next......maybe a step-by-step look at how I attempt to make coffee in a french press...for the first time?
