REVIEW: French Toast Pop-Tarts

Kellogg's French Toast Pop-Tarts

If you’re an avid reader of the Impulsive Buy, you know that we like Pop-Tarts. We’re Pop-Tart aficionados, if you will. We consider them to be part of our complete breakfast, and sometimes lunch, dinner, and midnight snack.

In the past few months, we’ve reviewed this one, this one, and this one, which have also turned out to be our top three all-time favorite Pop-Tarts flavors.

Recently, I came upon the new French Toast Pop-Tarts and wondered if they really did taste like French Toast. However, it’s been a while since I’ve eaten French Toast because I’m afraid of eggs, due to the egg cholesterol controversy.

First, they say eggs are bad for me, then they say they’re good for me, then they say they’re bad for me again, then they say they’re good for me again, and then they tell me that they’re good for me if I eat it in moderation.

Since I haven’t had French Toast in a long time, I can’t remember how it tastes. So I decided to overcome my fear of eggs and make French Toast.

Because I watch excessive amounts of the Food Network, I felt like I could cook some mean French Toast. Although to be honest, I mostly watch it for Rachael Ray.

After cooking a stack of French Toast and adding the butter, cinnamon, and syrup, I did my comparison.

Oh, man. I forgot that I made some damn good French Toast.

Hell yeah!

Oh, they were so heavenly.

Then I declared myself the King of French Toast and I thought no inferior French Toast Pop-Tart could beat MY delicious French Toast.

Well, I was wrong.

The French Toast Pop-Tarts were pretty good, with its syrup filling and cinnamon sprinkled on top. However, it’s not the best Pop-Tarts I’ve had, but it’s probably one of my top 5 favorites.

Although, I think that the syrup filling wasn’t that sweet and I wish it had a cinnamon-flavored frosting, instead of just cinnamon sprinkled on top. But overall, they totally do trump my own French Toast.

I guess the King of French Toast is dead.

Now that I think about it, maybe the reason why I stopped eating French Toast was not because of my fear of cholesterol, maybe it was because I suck at making French Toast.

  1. i think eggs are better for you than meat. and also when i took food science, they said that all animal products have cholesterol but we don’t get that much cholesterol from the food we eat; our bodies make it. but then the doctors still tell people with high cholesterol not to eat certain stuff so i don’t know.

  2. Hilarious about Rachel Ray…my wife hates the woman. My boss’ sister looks just like her..

    (little secret…i think she’s hot too…which means i think my boss’ sister is hot…oh shite)

  3. I’m confused now (some would say that is easily done), do you make good french toast or not? I demand, or at the very least entreat consistency from my favourite, product quasi-review team.

    p.s. did you read the article from ‘wired’ about branding? Apparently you internet product reveiwing types are the singular cause of the downfall of capitalist branding. Feather for your cap their sir?

  4. Aymie – I’m apparently now the Jester of French Toast.

    Jessie – Don’t worry your secret is safe with us, unless your wife reads this.

    Sam – I do not make good French Toast and that’s probably the reason why I haven’t made them in so long.

    I just finished reading the article…So does this mean I’ll never get free stuff from companies?


  5. *rummages around in pockets*
    I have, lets see…. a sachet of sugar….. hrmmm, what’s this? An Australian 50 cent piece (which to you would be worth about um, a ‘quarter’). *digs deeper* OK, or an enormous ball of pocket lint that I could send you?

  6. My last French toast experience was somewhat subpar. Actually, it was also my first French toast experience. I didn’t know it was so damn eggy! Is that normal? If so – bummer, because I hate the taste of eggs. Do the pop-tarts taste eggy?

  7. Sam – Got any Vegemite?

    Jenny – A lot of cinnamon, butter, and syrup is what I use to cover up the eggy taste. As for the Pop-Tarts, no eggy taste.

  8. Do I have vegemite? Is the pope a catholic? Does a bear…. ….well you know the rest. Of course I have vegemite! I should warn you though, the first time people who weren’t raised with it taste vegemite… they usually shoot you this look that says “oh, and I suppose you like torturing cute little puppies too… you sick, sick, so and so”. Well that is my best translation anyway. I’ve got the vegemite if you’ve got the postal details?

  9. I could easily live off both pop tarts and french toast, infact, I could live of anything with a dangerously high sugar level.

    The only reason I don’t eat french toast everyday, is that I have four children and a husband who are absolute french-toast-pigs.So, I end up standing for hours slaving over a hot stove and very near fainting from cooking exhaustion!!

    I think I’ll go the pop tarts.

  10. Sam – In the words of a blogging 14-year-old, “R U seRIoUs?” That would be cool!

    Amelia – Just a warning. It could get expensive when they become absolute Pop-Tarts pigs.

  11. Serious about torturing puppies or sending you vegemite? Because I take puppy torturing very seriously… however, vegemite I could send on a whim.

    (you’ve got my email, so if you want it….hell yeah I’m serious 😀 )

  12. You can’t send Vegemite without sending Tim Tams! Not that they taste good together by any stretch of the imagination, but individually – yum! Mmm Tim Tams.

  13. Jessie – Oh yeah forgot to mention this in the review. Pop-Tarts is encouraging people to freeze their Pop-Tarts as a different way to eat them. In a few of the previous Pop-Tarts reviews I did, I wrote about what they were like frozen.

  14. So what IS the best Pop-Tarts you’ve ever had? Inquiring minds wanna know…
    I’ll be back later because I’m on my way to buy the French Toast Pop Tarts! 😉

  15. Rachel Ray – annoying. Super annoying.

    As for the pop tarts – my favorite is still Frosted Blueberry, however I have yet to try the hot Fudge Sundae ones. Sounds SO good.

    I shall try the French Toast Tarts and see.
