From Froot Loops to Maple Bacon, there are about a million different flavors of Pop-Tarts to fuel your morning sugar rush. Nothing says “good morning” quite like a freshly-toasted pastry stuffed with a sugary filling and topped with a mound of icing.
However, it’s been a minute since Pop-Tarts released an unapologetic new flavor like Frosted Chocolate Cupcake or Sugar Cookie, which doesn’t try to pretend to be anything other than itself. I’m not a nutritionist, but some Pop-Tarts flavors sound a lot more to me like a sweet fix than a balanced breakfast.
That draught is officially ending with the arrival of a new churro-inspired flavor. Instagrammer @CandyHunting reports that Chocolatey Churro Pop-Tarts are “expected to launch within the next few months.” According to the packaging, eight pastries come in every box, and each serving has 400 calories.
Few desserts in life taste as good as warm cinnamon-coated churros dipped into melted chocolate. So if I were to make a bet, this new flavor could be on track to be as much of a hit as Frosted Confetti Cupcake. After it debuted in 2017, the flavor went on to become the second most-requested flavor in the entire Pop-Tart lineup.
If you ever can’t find your favorite flavor of Pop-Tart on store shelves, you can also try baking your own Giant Pop-Tart at home. Figuring out how to super-size this iconic American breakfast food was tough, but we did it.
