Who eats "Peanut Butter Pop Tart" Sandwiches?

I confess, I do.

And I confess, I think I'm addicted.

And I also confess, I'm a loser for not thinking of this sooner.

Thinking of what, you say?

The "Peanut Butter Pop Tart" sandwich, of course. Y'know, where you take two Pop Tarts and make a sandwich out of it with a good hearty smear of peanut butter between the two Pop Tarts.

There, I feel better now.

  1. Who eats them? Triathelon competitors 12 hrs. before competition? Not me, I get fat much too easily.

      Funny you should mention that. Only reason I'm downing these things like they're potato chips is because I'm in the middle of marathon training.

    2. I like pop tarts, I love peanut butter, and I have no problem eating odd combinations of food like that... but that particular one just sounds disgusting to me. I think it would bee too crumbly, too dense, and just too much.

      Along the same line... I have been known to put a glob of cream cheese on an Oreo cookie (or two...) Tastes like Oreo cheesecake without all the fuss. But that's only a few times a year, when I get the craving.

        Think of it as a PB&J on steroids.

        1. re: ipsedixit

          It occurs to me that the problem might be that I tend to have the non-fruit flavors around, when I have them. Like the brown sugar, cookies and cream, etc... because I usually eat them for a snacky-desserty thing, not a breakfast thing. I can see where the fruit flavors would be more like a PB&J, but I still think it would just be too much.

          Although the thought of a single hot strawberry one with peanut butter spread on the "non-icing" side is making my mouth water a bit...

          1. re: Ditdah

            brown sugar + PB sounds like a good flavor combo to me. i don't think i've eaten a Pop Tart in 25 years, but i swear i have a vague recollection of dunking them in PB at some point...and after looking at the current lineup of flavors on the Kellogg's website, i'm thinking it would work for a lot of them!

            try almond butter with the fruit flavors ;)

            ETA: and as RC51Mike pointed out below, Nutella would be excellent.

      2. You foul tempter! Just another reason for me to avoid Pop Tarts. Let's just say I had a slight addiction to them way back when and have not had one in many years. I stare at the boxes occasionally when shopping and almost bought a box last week while on a leave of absence from work following surgery. But just one bite and I know I won't be able to stop until many boxes later. But I will keep this "Peanut Butter Pop Tart" Sandwich in mind as part of a menu when asked what I would like for my last meal some day. :)

            Pop tarts have flavors? That you can taste?

            1. re: INDIANRIVERFL

              I wouldn't say the strawberry tastes like strawberry, or the blueberry tastes like blueberry, but there is enough taste difference between the two that I could tell them apart if blindfolded. The brown sugar/cinnamon has a pretty strong brown sugar flavor.

                "Pop tarts have flavors? That you can taste?"

                Of course they do! Why would so many people eat them if they had no taste? Put aside your snobbish attitude and just look at them for what they are: sweet, pseudo fruity and/or chocolatey breakfast pastries. Mmmmmm......

                Q: what flavor pop tart do you recommend?


                For a PBPT (aka Peanut Butter Pop Tart) Sandwich, I would suggest a fruit-based flavor, either the strawberry (unfrosted) or the blueberry (unfrosted).

              3. I'm thinking that brown sugar one, do they still make that?

                  "I'm thinking that brown sugar one, do they still make that?"

                  Yes. I saw them when gazing lovingly at the variety of Pop Tarts on the shelf at our local Shoprite last week.

                2. Just not enough stuff in the middle to ever get my attention. However, and on a related matter, my wife used to buy Little Debbie brownies and I would coat the top of them with peanut butter to make them edible. My son, giving me the greatest complement a child can bestow upon his father exclaimed, "Dad you're a genius."

                  I put Nutella on everything- cardboard, asphalt shingles, you name it. But, I suppose that would be a completely different thread.

                        I make nutella pop tarts. I'll bet they'd be good as a peanut butter sandwich. I've never thought to put pb in the pop tart but maybe something like a buckeye center would be good.

                        1. re: RC51Mike

                          My grandfather used to spread softened butter Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies for dessert. Sadly, the rest of us inherited his love of butter, but not his metabolism.

                        2. I don't even bother to spread nutella anymore. I eat it right out of the jar, with a spoon. At Christmas a few years ago, I saw 5 kg jars of Nutella for sale in Italy. That's an 11 lb jar of Nutella. That plus the 10 lb Toblerone would make a perfect Christmas, I think...

                          1. One night many years ago, a friend and I concocted the most amazing queso dip featuring a healthy dollop of tequila along with just about everything else in the fridge. Once it was finished we realized we didn't have any chips (and were in no condition to drive).

                            We ended up dipping blueberry pop tarts in our concoction after rationalizing, "hey, people put cheese on apple pie."

                            As I recall it hit the spot.
