Pop-Tarts have long been the breakfast food of choice for time-pressed individuals with a serious sweet tooth. Colorful, frosted, and filled with a substance whose capability for scorching your palate is only rivaled by the lava-like innards of a Hot Pocket, these childhood favorites are a sugary blast from the past for many of us. Now, a new generation gets to enjoy a whole new Pop-Tart experience, thanks to the company’s new partnership with Jolly Rancher.
That’s right: we’re getting candy-flavored Pop-Tarts. This summer, Pop-Tarts is rolling out three Jolly Rancher-inspired offerings, including green apple, watermelon, and cherry flavor frosted toaster pastries.
So how do the new Pop-Tarts stack up? With 200 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, and 16 grams of sugar in the form of corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, and plain white sugar per pastry, they’re hardly health food, especially when you consider that the sugary treats come in packs of two. While Pop-Tarts’ newest collaboration is no winner when it comes to your health, they’re hardly an outlier on our list of outrageously sugary food mashups. They’re not even the worst treats in your supermarket; that dubious honor goes to the 30 Unhealthiest Snacks on the Planet.
