Cooking corner: pop-tarts toaster pastries

Snack-time is the one meal per day for which I really go out of my way. In fact when the clock strikes four most days, I realize I haven’t eaten at all; it’s time for a snack.

I’ll sacrifice punctuality, hygiene, anything for that ever-important can of Natural Ice and something to stifle my impatient stomach.

Some people like granola bars, trail mix or grapes, but I really feel like the two most important things every snack-time needs are a good dose of natural flavoring and 330 mg of sodium. Keeping that in mind, pop-tarts toaster pastries are my go-to snack.

The first four pop-tart flavors were introduced in 1964, but the delectable toaster treat now comes in 30 flavors. My favorite thing about pop-tarts is the variety. No matter what you’re in the mood for, there’s a pop-tart for you.

I usually stick with the fruit flavors, such as frosted cherry, which I am snacking on today, though sometimes I like to mix it up with brown sugar cinnamon or s’mores.

Don’t fret if you’re on a diet—many flavors are available in unfrosted and low-fat varieties. You could also cut your portion in half by sharing with a friend, since there are two pastries in each pouch.

Today I shared my snack with Bullet sports editor Zach Moretti who said, “Pop-tarts taste good.”

If you like things that taste good, make pop-tarts for your next snack. They really are a great source of seven vitamins and minerals and are great warm or cold. They’re perfect for anyone enjoying snack-time on the go!

Ingredients:

1 pop-tarts toaster pastry pouch, any flavor (I used cherry)

Directions:

1.Remove pastry from pouch.
2. Put pastry in toaster.
3. Wait for pastry to be finished toasting.
4. Let pastry cool briefly before handling—if your pop-tart gets too hot, the frosting and filling can cause burns. Ouch!
5. Enjoy!
