Frosted Maple-Bacon Pop-Tarts. Need I say more?
No, seriously, need I? I mean, c’mon. Warm golden brown sugary maple goodness with bacon bits.
These are real and they sound spectacular, and they’re coming soon to a supermarket shelf/breakfast table. And there are other flavors, but honestly none as exciting as maple bacon. We’ll also have Frosted Chocolatey Caramel, Pink Lemonade, Frosted Maple Bacon, Frosted Watermelon, and Frosted Spring Strawberry.
Kellogg’s told Bustle.com that these limited edition pastries will arrive in mid-December, with the exception of Fresh Spring Strawberry which will arrive in the spring. Ahhh, I see what they did there.
I imagine they’re very tasty, but something about warm watermelon and lemonade just doesn’t get me excited. But I’d be happy to try a sample if Kellogg’s sent me some (note to self: go back and bold this so they see it).
I’m not a big breakfast eater, but I’m pretty excited about this. The last time I was really excited about breakfast was when Boo-Berry came back. When I do have a Pop-Tart, and it’s pretty rare, I have two flavors that I really enjoy: Frosted Strawberry and Frosted Blueberry. I am not adverse to Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon. And speaking of limited editions, the last few autumns have featured Pumpkin Pie. They’re usually only available at Target and they are terrific. They taste exactly as advertised – like that wonderful slice of pumpkin pie after dinner.
I’ve always been a maple bacon fan. I know that’s not unique to me in any way, but I’ve had some great combinations. I’ve had everything from chicken, bacon and waffles in Las Vegas that I crave at least once a month to a maple-bacon milkshake at a burger place in Pasadena that has no equal – at least none that I’ve found thus far.
OK, let’s talk about breakfast. And Pop-Tarts. So I have three questions for you:
• What’s your favorite morning meal/snack/ritual?
• What’s your favorite flavor of Pop-Tart?
• Will you try Frosted Maple Bacon Pop-Tarts?
Let me know your answer to any or all of the questions in the comments or on Twitter. And for more photos and conversation, please follow my posts on Facebook. Once I get my hands on these bacon cakes, I’ll follow-up with a review.
And to end with even more bacon, here’s a photo gallery featuring a few examples of my past interactions with maple and bacon.
