Pop-Tarts 2012 Team USA
The sixth of several summer-related posts in a row!
Pop-Tarts issued a flavor celebrating the participation of the United States Olympic team in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England during August.
This product has a few humorous and notable things going on with it:
1) The name of the flavor is "2012 Team USA". That's it. Despite it claiming in smaller writing below the title that it is a "mixed berry" pastry, it's technically 2012 Team USA-flavored.
2) The foil wrappers inside the box are gold, not silver(like usual), because of course, the USA accepts nothing less than gold for the Olympics.
3) The pastries themselves are the most obnoxious I've ever seen. The pastry dough is colored with deep red, with a white frosting and red and blue rock candy sprinkles.
As for the taste, it's barely discernible from the standard Strawberry Pop-Tarts. If anything, the flavor is more muddled and less characteristic.
Pop-Tarts 2012 Team USA:- Good
Original Pop-Tarts(Strawberry, for comparison):- Good
