Printed Fun Pop-Tarts Frosted Sugar Cookie
Arguably a holiday flavor, Pop-Tarts has rolled out their Sugar Cookie variety for at least the 2nd year in a row. Perhaps it's simply a wintry flavor and not specifically for the holidays?
Anyway, I'm glad it's back.
Not only are its frosted fronts printed with adorable images, but its flavor and texture rank at the top if its class. It's yet another vaguely vanilla flavor with perhaps a bit of butter, but it has an added doughy flavor that those cake products are able to achieve. Along with that, the filling inside is very dense and chewy such that it takes effort to pull a bite away. It may sound strange, but it's very satisfying.
When toasted, almost everything about it improves. The sweetness stays the same, the texture softens, while all the flavors intensify, especially the butter. It's almost like eating a sugar cookie straight out of the oven, and that's not hyperbole. Incredible.
Printed Fun Pop-Tarts Sugar Cookie: - Outstanding
Original Pop-Tarts (Strawberry, for comparison): - Good
