Pop Tarts

Remember these? The original Pop Tarts, sans icing.

I personally believe that when the icing came out on the tarts, the civilized world ended. I don't see the need for it. Pop Tarts have plenty of flavor already. And the crust/bread/whatever-that-is-that-holds-in-the-filling is so yummy. Icing just ruins it.

I think the icing was invented for people who constantly want more in their lives and aren't ever satisfied with what they've got.

Or it's for people with a bigger sweet tooth than mine. I prefer the first explanation, as it makes me sound like the greatest person in the world.

The icing is so good! The only reason they didn't originally have it was because they thought it would melt in the toaster - but they reevaluated in 1967.

Of course, I don't even like the fruit ones - I'm a cinnamon or chocolate girl myself.
