Do we really need a Pop-Tarts World?

Pop-Tarts always got the shaft in my household growing up.

As a chunky child, the breakfast pastry never satisfied my hearty appetite. Instead of grabbing the delightfully portable Pop-Tart and running outside to play, I was the kid who would rather sit down for bacon and eggs and miss a round of hide-and-seek.

It turns out that I am in the minority regarding my indifference to Pop-Tarts.

This week, the powers-that-be have opened Pop-Tarts World, a store in Times Square that sells all things related to this brand, according to an article in the New York Times.

In Pop-Tarts World, there’s a café that serves about 30 snacks and desserts:


There’s a Pop-Tart vending machine:

There’s even Pop-Tart sushi:

Since I didn’t like Pop-Tarts as a child, I’m not too jazzed about a whole world (in Times Square, no less) devoted to the snack. I’d rather have a Raisin Bran Crunch World. That would be awesome on about 27 different levels.

So folks, what do you think? Does New York and the rest of this great nation really need a Pop-Tarts World? If not Pop-Tarts, what other “world” would you like to see?

  1. I don’t mind poptarts too much. The fake sugary preservative filled treat was like having dessert for breakfast which I loved.

    But I do not think we need a poptart world. I think it will eventually lose its luster.

  2. I can’t believe they have Pop-Tart Sushi!! I’m kinda upset that the powers that be have time to conjure up such ways for people to spend their money on mess. I’d like to see a world devoted to feeding the hungry… am I alone in that?
