Serious Eats Taste Tests Every Pop-tart Flavor

Who doesn’t love a good pop tart? Definitely not national editor of Serious Eats, Mike Falkowitz, who had the very important job of taste testing the 23 flavors of Pop Tarts from classic to seasonal and novel. According to the respected food blog, the best flavors would have to be Chocolate and S’mores. The team went and categorized the pop tarts into groups of Classic, Frosted Fruit, Chocolate, Brown Sugar, Wild, Nutty, Oaty, and Novelties. Although the classic plain with strawberry or blueberry filling are the ones that stood the test of time with their popularity, the other flavors that came in and out have their place in the market as well. The novelties however, do not. “Most successful may be the chocolate chip, which does indeed have the pleasingly gooey texture of melted Nestle chocolate chips. The rest—Hot Fudge Sundae, Red Velvet, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Birthday Cake—all have strong artificial flavors and aromas best avoided,” said Falkowitz.
