We were given good news and bad news this weekend.
The bad news is that Pumpkin Spice Oreos are no longer available in the Wabash Valley (at least at the one Walmart and Meijer where we looked). This really bummed me out as I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye.
The good news is that I married Chad and because he couldn’t find Pumpkin Spice Oreos, he bought the next best thing. Pumpkin Pie Poptarts! I had never had them so today I thought I’d do a little review on them.
Appearance: Like a regular Poptart with icing and orange, brown and yellow flecks sprinkled on top.
Smell: Like leftover pumpkin pie you get out of the refrigerator the day after Thanksgiving and promptly eat for breakfast. But only after telling your kids that pumpkin pie is not an appropriate breakfast. Because of this you have to get up at 7am before your kids discover the leftover pie in the fridge and question your life choices.
Taste: Like pumpkin pie that that you could theoretically get at a gas station that comes pre-packaged in plastic wrap and because it’s been exposed to the light, has degraded so it tastes a tiny bit stale. With a slight play-doughy aftertaste that you realize is in every Poptart you’ve ever eaten but up until this point in your life you’ve been in denial as to its existence.
I wonder if toasting them would have any change in their overall taste or smell.
I’ll be right back…….
Oh boy. If anything toasting made the playdoughy smell more prominent. Yikes. Kinda don’t want to taste them now…..but for the sake of the blog…….
So the taste is actually not that bad. More like pumpkin pie. And so far no play-doughy aftertaste.
Yep. My mistake was not toasting them before hand.
**Poptarts did not sponsor this review. All Poptarts were purchased by our hard earned pennies. Although I’d really respect the poo out of any company that agrees to sponsor a review that is less than favorable. 😉
