The 2012 backlog continues! We're throwing in a Halloween edition which I didn't pick up until after October.
Once again, these Pop-Tarts are a bit obnoxious with the amount of frosting and sprinkles, and while these additions add little to the experience, they are adorable and aren't really detrimental to the product.
The bite is soft and fudgey. The chocolate filling is less sweet and more of a dark chocolate variety than most other chocolatey Pop-Tarts. It's pleasant, but unremarkable. The restrained sweetness is a nice surprise, but the filling needs just a bit more flavor.
When toasted, the gooey fudge increases viscosity and tastes a bit more like dark chocolate, devoid of a sweetness which I think it needs more of.
These pale in comparison to Pop-Tarts S'mores, which is a shining example of the order of what this snack could have been.
Pop-Tarts Spookylicious:- Good
Original Pop-Tarts S'mores(for comparison):- Great
