We all know of Pop Tarts, however, if you’re in the UK, you’ll know how difficult it is to get hold of the mouthwatering flavours from the USA. Instagram is full of delicious pictures of the tasty treats and us Brits do envy you for that! Now, I’m on a frosting frenzy as I have discovered American flavours in B&M stores which don’t break the bank! I picked a few favs from the list of tempting tarts and gave into S’mores, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Hot Fudge Sundae.
Of course, the images on the box are always deceiving and your filling never actually looks that gooey and gorgeous. For anyone who doesn’t know of these snacks, they’re little snacks that are almost like a biscuit with lots of scrumptious fillings to choose from. You can either have them warm by toasting or microwaving. No time for that? You can eat them straight from the packet.
First of all, I put s’mores to the test! This is supposed to taste like marshmallows, melted chocolate and digestive biscuits which sounds pretty good to me. People even have these for breakfast, that would encourage me to get out of bed! The icing is slightly lacking, but it’s all about what’s on the inside right? Once heated and broken in half, the marshmallow pieces goo out of the sides, and the chocolate is oozing. Perfection right? After having my first bite, I can say that the biscuit or ‘pastry’ is hefty but the icing has the perfect sweet effect, and the filling is the perfect amount of chocolate and mallow’. Time to step up your game, UK!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
If you follow my blog a lot, you’ll know how much I love cookie dough. The difference between the UK and America is the fact that sweet treats always taste a little different and I will always agree that our chocolate tastes wayyyy better. This was the Pop Tart that I was most looking forward to, and once microwaved the smell ran through the house and had everyone running downstairs. I broke it apart and what it revealed was the most doughy, chocolaty, creamy cookie goodness. The chocolate icing was crunchy and went charmingly with the chewy texture of cookie dough. Honestly, I was expecting some crappy chemical tasting cookie, but it tastes fresh out of the oven. Score out of 10? An 8.
Hot Fudge Sundae
This was the flavour that I wasn’t overly bothered about, but I had to try it. When taking out of the packet, these gems are appealing to the eye. Covered in white icing, drizzled with chocolate sauce and topped off with sprinkles, it certainly looks like a unicorn explosion. When tasting, the aroma tickles your taste buds, and the flavour of vanilla ice cream leaves you wanting more. Very addictive! Low calorie and low in sugar? That’s the cherry on top.
So Brits, it’s now down to you to track your tarts down and get tasting! What would be your favourite flavour?
