Review- Kelloggs Pop Tarts 'USA'

I've gone a bit Pop Tart mad lately! After getting the usual British Srawberry Sensation and Chocolate versions, I decided to venture into the large American grocery section my local Tesco has. I picked up 3 boxes at £3.50 each. Not a bad price considering most American sweet stockists sell them at £6+! 

The 3 flavours I got were Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cookies & Creme and Hot Fudge Sundae. Each box contained 4 packs of 2 Pop Tarts. 

I have to say I was slightly alarmed when I read that they were Artificially Flavoured and contained Genetically Modified ingredients but was willing to the risk the potential 'Adverse effects' for the good of the Blog!

Chocolate Cookie Dough

This is the first one I tried and it was really delicious! The filling was thicker than I expected and it did have a cookie flavour which surprised me - I was expecting a general vague sugary taste! The chocolate chips melted nicely when toasted. It was enjoyable both hot and cold. Am I the only one who prefers 'uncooked' Pop Tarts?! 

This one gets a 3 out of 5 from me! 

Cookies & Creme

Next up was the Cookies & Creme! I was hoping for an Oreo taste which I sort of got. Albeit a very cheap mock Oreo! It wasn't all bad though - The creamy filling was sweet as expected but went well with the dark pastry. 

This one gets a 2.5 from me! 

Hot Fudge Sundae

Oh dear. As soon as I opened the packet I was engulfed by the ridiculously sweet scent of this Tart! The taste wasn't any more pleasant unfortunately. It was somewhere between medicinal and pure sugar which burnt my throat! They hit the nail on the head when they said 'Artifically Flavoured' with this one. It also left a strange film in my mouth. Even with all these negatives, I can sort of see what they were trying to get at with 'Hot Fudge Sundae'. Sort of. 

Only a 1 out of 5 from me! 

Overall I enjoyed my little Pop Tart Party. I'd buy the Chocolate Chip Cookie ones again and have already spotted a S'mores version I want to try. I've seen a Red Velvet flavour on Amazon too. I think I might be addicted - Must be all those GM ingredients!


  1. The red velvet ones are a bit of a let down but DEFINITELY try the smores if you spot them!

    1. Oh really? Thats no good! :( They have the Smores ones in Tesco but I am yet to purchase them.. To many other snacks on the go! Haha x
