I love Toast’em’s. I had never been a big fan of toaster pastries, thinking that items like Pop-Tarts by Kellogg’s were for little kids. Over the last few years, I discovered Toast’ems when I was shopping at the Dollar Tree and needed to bring a snack with me on my walks in Manhattan in the afternoons. These delightful treats carry so well and there is such a variety of flavors to choose from.
The Frosted Strawberry Toast’em’s
You do not even have to heat these pastries as they are good just out of the bag. They have the same consistency as a Pop Tart at half the price and sometimes they have a bonus pack where you get an extra package of pastries for the same price.
The taste is delicious with fillings that include cherry, strawberry and cinnamon with a thick icing on the outside. These moist and crisp pastries have a nice, combined taste for breakfast or for a snack at any time of the day.
The consistency of the toaster pastries is wonderful and store well and last long. All the flavors have a nice taste without being overly sweet. The fruit flavors stay true to their type of taste. I have always liked the tartness of the cherry flavor.
They are a nice alternative to a cookie or a fruit pie as an after school or something to sneak into your briefcase at work for the inner child in you. These nostalgic snacks are the perfect sugary treat.
