Forgive me, for I have sinned ...

I have to get something off my chest; otherwise, I may get ostracized by the Chowhound community.
It's been crazy hot where I am (crazy hot as in record breaking temps) and I needed something to restore the sanity in my life.
I wanted an Its-It Ice Cream Sandwich but couldn't find any.
So I made myself a Pop-Tart ice cream sandwich.
Took one Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tart, one big scoop of Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, and topped it with another Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tart.
Sure, it was a sugar and preservative bomb, but it was so damn good. Cold and sweet, and that gooey chocolate fudge center provided just the right nice contrast to the crunch of the Pop-Tart pastry shell and creamy texture of the ice cream.
This beats out an Its-It any day of the year. Heck, if they sold these at ballparks I would stay the entire 9 innings ...
You must be where I am, too. 88 in Oakland, but w/ the haze and humidity (!) it feels like Brooklyn in August!! Your creation sounds delightfully disgusting. If I had only read this a half hour ago, before I went shopping, guess what would have been in my cart? I can't believe you consumed 2 entire PT's plus ice cream by yourself. I'd have cut it in half and shared (Not!!) If you wanted to be "healthy", I bet the strawberry or raspberry PT's would be good w/ some plain old vanilla ice cream, too. Thanks for the inspiration to fight the perspiration! What are you making for dinner in this heat, or was the calorie bomb the equivalent of dinner? ;) Stay cool ipsed.... adam
Eat, ipse, for jeebus' sake! All you need to ask yourself is "was it delicious?" Clearly was. Absolved, as is the consensus.
But now you have to refine this beast that led you astray. Can you find the Reduced Fat Blueberry Pop-Tarts and do something with those? Maybe a tour de force with the Brown Sugar Cinnamon PTarts and...?
When one sins, one must justify it by sharing the sin. Dare you.
They have. I saw this in an ad this past weekend and thought, "OMG, who would put something like that into their body, let alone advertise it?" I guess we know the answer. Now, if you'll excuse me, I think there's a box of Pop-Tarts, um I mean high fiber cereal, calling my name. Yeah, that's the ticket.
