This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Pop-Tarts.Hello again Pop-Tarts friends. Okay, it was so much to read your comments from the last post. I can't believe how many of you have been eating these things your whole life! You made me feel right at home since I thought I'd share another secret with you.....
I love them too and having been a Pop-Tarts follower for years! There I've said it. They're yummy! Need a box? I've got 4....
Growing up in a family of 6, Pop-Tarts were sort of a luxury and we each got our own special box in our Christmas stocking. Dreamy.
So...when I got to college and could buy/eat whatever I wanted Pop-Tarts became part of my on-the-go lunch routine. Seriously, a package of Brown Sugar Cinnamon was the perfect thing to snack on during a boring lecture. And since that flavor was low-fat, I felt pretty good about the habit. Of course, if I wasn't careful walking to class with a bag full of heavy books and yummy Pop-Tarts, the poor pastries were munched up when I opened the bag.
And the same thing is true now when I throw a packet in my purse for the kids to snack on.
I'm always trying to protect the Pop-Tarts from getting smashed in my purse. Silly, I know. But these are things I think about!
So with this Pop-Tarts campaign in mind, I put my creative skills to use and created a better way for transporting your Pop-Tarts (or any fun treat).....
a Pop-Tarts pouch!
Made with Vinyl (for easy cleaning/wiping) I inserted plastic canvas into the pouch to give it support and protect the treats inside.
The patriotic colors were really fun to sew with and when I brought them out for the kids, it felt like a party. They were both excited to see what was inside their vinyl pouch.
Pop-Tarts! Thanks Mom!
They immediately started chowing.
The pouches were perfect for our favorite kid-time activity.....just hanging out around town or going to the park. Wherever we are, Lucy wants to stop and "have a picnic". And so, we did just that:
We ate our favorite Vanilla Milkshake Pop-Tarts,
inspected them to see which sprinkle colors we could find,
danced and jumped around,
and had fun being kids (me included). I got a pouch too, with a big red bow on top.
But I'll be sharing more about the Pop-Tart pouches, with a complete tutorial, later.
