Pop-Tart Quest: Week 8

Not BAMF 1

WEEK 8! EIGHT! THAT’S AS MANY AS FOUR PACKETS OF POP-TARTS! AND THAT’S A LOT! THIS IS… POP-TART QUEST!

Yeah, that looks good, right? I mean… come on! Chocolatey Caramel? I like 100% of those flavors. This was a lay-up. A fastball over the middle. An empty-netter. A [sports euphemism to be added later]. I thought, “I want a delicious Pop-Tart for this week of the quest”, and this is RIGHT where I went. Boom, chocolatey caramel. No questions, just love. 

Easy

Mother

Fucking

Peasy.

Right?

Well, I’m pretty sure I’ve telegraphed the hell out of this, but here goes: This Tart was so damn disappointing, I’m surprised it doesn’t just have a picture of me on the box. Never before have I been so wrong, Pop-Tarts, and now I am forced to re-evaluate a great many things I believe. Are koalas actually cuddly and delightful? Maybe not! I mean, if Chocolatey Caramel Pop-Tarts can deceive me, why not small bepouched bears? 

There’s something… almost smokey about the caramel. Like burny, smokey… I don’t know, shut up; it’s hard to describe. It is a low-quality caramel, that’s all I know, and it brought the whole Tart down. The chocolatey shell part was good enough–you may remember it from such fantastic Pop-Tarts as Chocolate Peanut Butter–but the C-list caramel they used… unacceptable. 

You, too, may someday find yourself eyeing these in the store and decide “Yes, that is the sugary treat that I desire”. Let me save you some time.

That’s what you actually want.

Taste: 

B- : So very disappoint.

Being a Caramello Bar: 

F+: It isn’t!

Toasted-to-Untoasted ratio: 

40% : This actually improves if you don’t toast them, which is bizarre for most choco-Tarts. It brings less life to the caramel demon inside.

Overall: 

C+ : Have you figured out these grades don’t mean anything? I just pull letters out of the air, guys.

Hey kids! Remember Battleworld? That’s ok. Not many other people do, either. Battleworld happened waaaay back in the halcyon days of 2015, where Marvel Comics basically pushed the pause button on their regular line to regale readers with tales of places near and far or those never in between.
