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.
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?
