We Tried New Pretzel Pop-Tarts, and Here’s What We Thought

The shell is a pretzel placebo

Pop-Tart purists, you might want to sit down for this one. Kellogg’s is launching a pretzel-coated version of the iconic toaster pastry. Pretzel Pop-Tarts taste just like the regular ones.

The Most Iconic Breakfast Foods in America

Thanks to our friends at Kellogg’s, Daily Meal editors tasted the new product before its official launch in January. Once on shelves, it’ll be available in two flavors: cinnamon sugar and chocolate. The outside of this classic snack has a hard pretzel shell — or it looks hard, at least. There’s no crunch at all. We tried them untoasted and toasted. The texture is no different than the standard toaster pastry.

It doesn’t even taste like a pretzel, but it does smell like one. The salt-like stuff on the outside is actually sugar, which is fine, but if you’re expecting traditional seasoning, you won’t find it here. Long story short: If you closed your eyes and bit into this, you would have absolutely no idea it was supposed to be pretzel.

The cinnamon sugar flavor is better than the chocolate by leaps and bounds. It tastes just like the regular cinnamon sugar Pop-Tart, which is a fan-favorite in our office. The chocolate variety tastes like someone slathered Hershey’s syrup between two pastry slabs and called it a day. It’s fine if you like artificial-tasting chocolate, but it’s nothing to write home about.

Try it for yourself this January, when Pop-Tarts Pretzel hits retailers for a suggested retail price of $3.49 per eight-count box. If you're more of a "if it's not broken, don't fix it" type of cat, stick to the classics with these snack foods that have been around for more than 100 years.


We Tried Burger King&rsquos New $1 Taco&mdashHere&rsquos What We Thought

Earlier this week, Burger King unveiled its limited-edition $1 tacos. And from the look of those promo pics, they could rival T-Bell's. Or so we thought. Yep, past tense. Turns out, those ads looking nothing like the real thing. I'm sad to report, BK is catfishing us all.

ICYMI, the dollar tacos, which hit menus Tuesday, are filled with seasoned beef, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, and taco sauce. Sounds like a recipe for success right? Wrong.

I know. Harsh. But tell me guys, does this.

I unwrapped my meal with great anticipation and was quickly crushed. This sad, soggy tortilla-beef combo was masquerading as tacos, but. couldn't. possibly. be. Tacos are delicious! Tacos are flavorful! Tacos don't look like someone straight up sat on 'em!

Now I'm gonna level with you. They didn't taste quite as bad as they looked, though that's not exactly a ringing endorsement. The taco included all those aforementioned fixings, but a very (very. ) limited amount. And the flavor? It was lacking. The taco sauce overpowered the whole thing.

The internet is pretty pissed about it, too. "Looks like dog food in a crusty tortilla shell," one customer tweeted."I tried your taco today and it was awful. I wept it was so bad. Took one bite but the taste has lingered with me for over two hours," another added. So yeah, I'm not the only one with beef.

Burger King, if you're reading this, I love you. I appreciate you. I respect you. But maybe, justttt maybe stick to what you already know.
