REVIEW: Kellogg’s Blueberry Muffin Pop-Tarts

Oh. Dear. Lord. Stop reproducing, Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts!

You’re making the Octomom and all the reality show fertility families on TLC look normal. What are you up to now, forty or so offspring? I bet they just slide right out of you now, yelling “Weeeeee!!!” as they come through your birth canal. Aren’t you almost 50 years old? Aren’t you too old to be reproducing? It’s dangerous at your age. Or maybe you’re trying to get your own reality show on TLC called “Poppin’ Out Tarts Until Menopause Starts”?

By now you’re also probably running out of names because your latest kid’s name, Blueberry Muffin, sounds like an exiled Strawberry Shortcake character or a slightly chubby stripper who is into autoerotic asphyxiation. I hope you don’t name your next child, Poppy Seed Muffin Pop-Tarts, because, really, if you think about it, that should be your name.

Well, at least your Blueberry Muffin Pop-Tarts sound like something that can be eaten for breakfast, which Pop-Tarts was originally made for. It’s unlike many of the offspring you’ve delivered over the past few years, which were more like desserts than breakfast pastries. Also, now that I think about it, most of them had stripper names: Hot Chocolate, Cookies and Cream and Chocolate Banana Split.

Your Blueberry Muffin Pop-Tarts look very similar to other frosted Pop-Tarts, so I guess you’re not jumping over the fence. It has a light yellow crust with blueberry muffin flavor and blueberry bits filling and white frosting with brown and blue sprinkles on top. It doesn’t taste like a blueberry muffin, instead it tastes like a less sweet Frosted Blueberry Pop-Tart. The blueberry flavor wasn’t overwhelming, which was due to the filling not containing much blueberry flavor. But if blueberry muffins tasted like this Pop-Tart, I would be breaking out my muffin pans and inner Betty Crocker to make them every day, because I really liked the flavor of these Blueberry Muffin Pop-Tarts.

Hmm…Now I’m torn, Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts. I want you to stop reproducing, because it just isn’t safe (or pretty) at your age. But I want you to continue reproducing so that I can see if you come up with something as good as your Blueberry Muffin Pop-Tarts.

(sigh)

Continue reproducing. Weeeeee!!!

  1. They should change the name from blueberry. Reminds me of an Unwrapped episode I saw with Red Vines, the rep from the company said they used be called Raspberry Vines but they changed the name to more accurately reflect the taste…….really?!? …they taste more like “red” then raspberry, WTF?!?

  2. @Bear Silber: angry bob had a cousin named Red. Maybe they taste like him? Of course, he died a few years back, so “red” might not be a taste you’d want to market.

  3. Love the Octomom reference, I miss her on the news 24/7! I would be interested in knowing what the natural flavors are that are mentioned on the front of the box?!

  4. I love octomom and would like to make sweet love to her while eating a blueberry poptart. smeared on her back.

    wow that was sicker then normal

    THAT IS ALL

  5. How can “A reality show on TLC called ‘Poppin’ Out Tarts Until Menopause Starts.'” be a con? I’d watch that show. What kind of reality show fan are you?

    You’d better be on the lookout – Bravo has been looking for some new shows. Make sure you get credit for that title.

  6. @Bear Silber: I think they taste like flavored wax.

    @meg: They will keep pumpin them out until Tony the Tiger says stop.

    @skibs: There’s a white cream and some blueberry flavored stuff. i think the white cream is supposed to be the muffin flavor.

    @WIBIA: I kind of miss the Octomom, but then I think of Angelina Jolie and I feel better. I believe the natural flavors are purple. I’m not sure if that a flavor or natural.

    @Neil the hammer: No, I felt that was normal.

    @Clevegal42: I’d watch it only if I get to see hot flashes.

    @Erin Brooks: I think when they reach 100, we all get free Pop-Tarts.

    @winnie: That PB and chocolate sounds good. I predict they will have it within the next two years.

    @Chuck: Raspberry Muffin sounds like transsexual stripper.

  7. @bear silber, thanks for the links. Interesting. I wonder what the PBJ tasted like and why they were discontinued. Don’t know how I missed them.
