Oh! Hello there. I was just trying to say Nature’s Path Organic Cherry Chocolate Stripes Frosted Toaster Pastries five times in a row as fast as I can. As you can see, it’s quite the tongue twister and now my dreams of becoming an auctioneer have been crushed under the nine words that make up the name of this product.

Oh, I’ve let you down, Mr. John Moschitta Jr.!

The Nature’s Path Organic Cherry Chocolate Stripes Frosted Toaster Pastries, which I will call NPOCCSFTP for short, is the latest Pop-Tart lookalike from the organic foods manufacturer. The combination of tart cherries and sweet chocolate is a flavor that’s usually found in the candy clusterfuck known as a Whitman’s Sampler, whose multitude of choices has turned me over the years into an indecisive moron. I’m not too fond of the cherry/chocolate combo due to the number of times I’ve wrongfully picked the very tart cherry-filled Whitman’s chocolate, which my mother forced me to eat since I already touched it.

Because of my dislike for the cherry/chocolate combination, I didn’t have high expectations for the NPOCCSFTP, but Nature’s Path made the combination much more palatable than Whitman’s. The organic cherries didn’t overpower the organic chocolate, instead they blended well together because the cherries weren’t too sour. There’s also a little organic pomegranate juice, which I’m surprised didn’t enhance the sourness of the filling. Inside the pastry, the two fillings were supposed to be in alternating stripes, but because they’re both dark in color it’s like two bikini-clad girls in a filthy mud wrestling match where you can’t tell who’s who.

The crust had a grainy texture to it, just like the other Nature’s Path toaster pastry I tried. It’s also a little darker than the other one, so I’m wondering if there’s chocolate baked into it. It toasted up nicely, giving the pastry a nice crunchiness. The dirty white coloring of the frosting was a little off-putting since I demand my white toaster pastry frosting to be brighter than my smile.

Overall, the NPOCCSFTP was better than I thought it was going to be, but I can see people not enjoying it because of the cherry and chocolate combination. Nature’s Path Toaster Pastries are a good alternative, albeit a bit more expensive, for Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts. If you care about eating organic foods, then this would be an obvious choice. But if you don’t care about organic foods and you like toaster pastries with simple, short names like Kellogg’s Frosted Cherry Pop-Tarts, then the NPOCCSFTP is probably not the product for you.

Price: FREE
Size: 6 pastries
Purchased at: Given by PR Firm
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Decent cherry/chocolate flavor. Cherry wasn’t overpowering. USDA organic certified. Vegetarian. Uses fair traded ingredients. Mud wrestling.
Cons: Cherry/chocolate flavor might be a turnoff for some. Same nutritional values as a regular Pop-Tart. Only six in a box and pricier than Pop-Tarts. Could make out the stripes in the filling. Off white frosting was a little off-putting. Long name.

  1. Chuck says:

    Sounds like a really weird flavor to me. I’d rather just have one or the other, not stripes.

  2. Eric says:

    That actually looks pretty dece. I’m a fan of those super fake cherries that come in those boxes. I just wish I had PMS so I could gorge on them while watching my soaps.

  3. Pomai says:

    I’ll pass on anything that resembles a Pop Tart.

    Try say “NPOCCSFTP” 10 times real fast.

  4. Woodenhand says:

    Hmmm I’m inclinded to go with Pomai on this one, I’ll pass on anything pop tarts especially a would be healthy poptart… and cherry and chocolate….hmmmm not good eatin’!

  5. Marvo says:

    @Chuck: I wouldn’t mind an organic chocolate toaster pastry so that I can place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it, followed by canned whipped cream, and topped with a cherry just so that it balances out the organicness.

    @Eric: They were decent, much better than I thought it would be, but I don’t know if I could gorge on them while watching Beaches.

    @Pomai: That is hard. I can’t do it three times. Again, I have disappointed Mr. Moschitta.

    @Woodenhand: Yes, Pop-Tarts are on the low-end of the spectrum of things called pastries.

  6. Naked Ken says:

    There are certain foods that they shouldn’t even try with the whole ‘organic’ thing. Does it matter if your toaster pastry has pesticides? Does it? However, were these on MY rock in the ocean, I’d totally eat them. Because I like to eat chocolate.

  7. Neil the hammer says:

    I kinda like poptarts once in a while. These cherry chocolate
    pastries kinda feel like assbuns not really right.

    THAT IS ALL

  8. Marvo says:

    @Naked Ken: I think the pesticides makes them addictive, which explains why I eat two at a time.

    @Neil the hammer: Isn’t the word assbuns repetitive?

  9. twig says:

    I like organic food just because they have real ingredients. I love these.

  10. Marvo says:

    @twig: Yes, I do like foods with ingredients that I know how to pronounce.

  11. Bunny says:

    I haven’t tried these but Nature’s Path does make really good organic cereal.
