There’s nothing like a melty campfire s’more! Luckily, you can get one smooshed into a Pop-Tart. No campfire needed! Instead of a normal Pop-Tart crust, you’ll get a tasty graham cracker crust with a gooey marshmallow and chocolate filling and a frosted chocolate top. I highly recommend toasting these Pop-Tarts to get the full s’mores experience.


Brown Sugar Cinnamon

Brown sugar cinnamon Pop-Tarts remind me of fall in a toaster pastry shell. If you’re craving a tasty fall dessert, these can satisfy your craving in a pinch! When you first bite into it and get to the soft center, your taste buds get hit with a sweet molasses and cinnamon flavor. The top of this Pop-Tart has a light brown frosting on top, adding a little extra sweetness. This one also tastes great toasted as the filling melts a little from the heat.


Cherry

The cherry Pop-Tart flavor is reminiscent of summer with the pretty light pink frosting and the bright red sprinkles. The filling tastes a little like cherry pie, which I think is another reminder of summer. The cherry filling actually has dried cherries and dried apples, creating a tasty burst of fruity flavor inside that famous pastry shell.

The unfrosted strawberry Pop-Tart is essentially the same thing as the strawberry Pop-Tart, but without the white frosting and sprinkles. I think this Pop-Tart tastes just as great without the frosting and allows you to focus on that fruity flavor. This Pop-Tart is a great one to put in the freezer and eat cold as a frosty strawberry treat. It also cuts back on sugar and overall calories.


Wild Berry

Not only is it fun-looking, but it’s bursting with flavor on the inside with a purple-colored mix of dried pears, dried strawberries, dried apples, and natural wild berry flavor. I recommend eating this one right out of the package.


Chocolate Chip

Little chocolate chips get baked into the tasty cookie crust, while the middle of the Pop-Tart has a smooth chocolate filling. It feels like you’re eating a chocolate chip cookie filled with fudge. Then the top of the Pop-Tart has chocolate frosting drizzle, which is like the cherry on top!

The raspberry Pop-Tart is very sweet, yet I think it has a slightly tangy flavor due to the mix of dried raspberries, dried pears, and dried apples in the filling.

The unfrosted blueberry Pop-Tart is the same as the frosted one and has a similar flavor profile.

This one tastes great out of the freezer, like a frozen fruity treat.
