Pop-Tarts clearly arose in a moment of meditative brilliance. Who doesn't love pastries? Why not sandwich two of them together, stuff it with sugary innards, a frosting glaze, and a spray of rainbow sprinkles? It's hard to say no to these snacks, particularly when toasted to a warm, sweet finish.
But it became clear to us recently in a recipe for Pop-Tart ice cream sandwiches that not all people actually toast them. "Toasting Poptarts is optional, most people don't," said Martini Me. Maybe you prefer them au naturel, straight out of their hermetically sealed silver package.
