Jolly Rancher Pop-Tarts Are Hitting Shelves!
I don't know about you, but when I hear "Jolly Rancher," I think of fruity deliciousness. I've never had anything with that name on it that wasn't delicious. Now, we can Jolly Rancher Pop-Tarts!
According to Food & Wine, this flavor wasn't much of a surprise. Instagram user JunkBanter posted about an upcoming Jolly Rancher-flavored Pop-Tart already. One post featured a picture of the frosted green apple Pop-Tart, and the other showed the frosted watermelon Pop-Tart flavor.
Along with the frosted green apple and watermelon flavors, there's also frosted cherry. The possibility of other flavors as well exists, but these are the three we're aware of.
So how will baked and frosted Jolly Ranchers for breakfast taste? Apparently, according to Cosmopolitan, exactly like Jolly Ranchers in a frosted pastry form. The flavors are reportedly accurate as far as comparison to the actual candy goes.
The Kellogg's Pop-Tart brand is no stranger to crazy flavor ideas (who is, these days?). They've been known to debut some questionable products … like maple bacon Pop-Tarts. Or the Dunkin' Donuts Vanilla Latte and Chocolate Mocha flavors. Remember the unicorn flavor? Just kidding. That one hasn't happened … yet.
So, what do you think about essentially having candy for breakfast? In my humble opinion, Pop-Tarts weren't far from being candy anyway. Maybe closer to a cookie, considering the baked and frosted nature of the "breakfast" food item. We already had classic strawberry and blueberry flavors. Can these Jolly Rancher Pop-Tart flavors really be much different than the fruit-filled kinds we already have?
The only way to know for sure is to try them yourself. If, like me, you are a huge fan of the Jolly Rancher brand, you'll be glad to know that these Pop-Tarts are available starting NOW in most grocery stores throughout the U.S. Go and try your luck in finding them at your own local shopping spot. Just remember that they are a limited edition treat, so stock up on them while you can.
