I was roaming around Safeway the other day and stopped to admire the giant wall of Pop Tarts. Have you ever realized how many flavors there are? Blueberry, Strawberry, Brown Sugar Cinnamon. Standard breakfast flavors, sure. Kind like pancakes or waffles. But have you ever realized how many unhealthy (and frankly, unappetizing) flavors there are? Wild Grape, Frosted Chocolate Fudge, Frosted Strawberry Milkshake? I started to ask myself, who is letter their kids eat these things everyday!
And then I remembered… oh right, my parents! Our house growing up was fully stocked with Pop Tarts galore. It was our go-to breakfast for at least 10 years straight. With each Pop Tart clocking in at approximately 200 calories, it’s no wonder my sister and I have such healthy default eating habits!
(My favorite flavor was S’Mores… mmMMMmm!)
