Frosted Gingerbread Pop-Tarts: Festive Treat or Merry Misfire?

Everyone’s favorite purveyor of toaster pastries is bringing holiday cheer to a grocery store near you with the new Pop-Tarts Frosted Gingerbread flavor. They’re covered in cute pictures and the box claims that you can build a gingerbread house out of them—but are they really good enough to leave out for Santa?

Frosted Gingerbread Pop-Tarts

Pop-Tarts that are good enough to replace the walls of your gingerbread house are here, and unlike gingerbread cookies, these won’t cost you your teeth. The filling is a little gummier than other Pop-Tarts, but that just means there’s more mush to love. The gingerbread flavoring is present, but not overpowering, which is a big plus for me (I’m not particularly fond of gingerbread cookies). These Frosted Gingerbread Pop-Tarts are definitely an improvement on the previously unfrosted gingerbread iteration. The frosting here, as with any Pop-Tart, improves the eating experience by leaps and bounds. Even as someone who doesn’t love gingerbread cookies, I’m willing to give these a passing grade.

  • Pop•tarts gingerbread tarts are a total marketing fail! The printing on the box is lies at its worst or misleading information at the least!
    They imply that I can build my own G-bread house, with 9 fun designs including 3 steps; 1/ Build walls and roof with Pop-Tarts* 2/ Use frosting as glue to secure pieces together 3/ Once your Pop-Tarts* gingerbread house is built, deck it out with candy and Kellogg’s cereals
    One expects everything to be included.
    There is no frosting, no designs and no information clarifying there is no kit included! I feel tricked and manipulated. For me, this is a giant fail!
