This is the one food I have searched for since before pumpkin products released. When trying to find out if Campbell’s makes pumpkin soup, amazon.com suggested one of the most glorious pumpkin products I have ever heard of: Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts.
I read every review possible to attempt to figure out where to purchase these (they were $27 on amazon at the time), and all I saw were positive reviews on the deliciousness and how these were everyone’s favorite Pop Tarts and how have these only been made last year … Definitely did not help my patience. Eventually I found a Facebook page for the product and asked there where everyone was finding them, and nearly all said Target, which made sense considering their commitment to pumpkin products (holiday food heaven).
After four Targets throughout the month of October and making second rounds in November, I almost gave up until two weeks ago on an impromptu trip I found two boxes shoved in the back. I almost squeeled and jumped with joy, but I didn’t think my friend would have appreciated that. As soon as I got home, I put one in the toaster oven (unfilled parts of the icing is brown as I like it) and devoured it as soon as it reached a heat that would not seer my tongue.
The Pop Tart was all I imagined and more. The taste of pumpkin was pleasantly prevalent for just being a smooth layer in a pastry. And the amount of cinnammon was perfect. And while this has nothing to do with the pastry’s taste, it was just too stinkin cute with its orange, brown, and yellow festive sprinkles. This Pop Tart is to pumpkin pie as a stromboli is to pizza, and just a pleasant experience.
