SNACK OF THE WEEK ..... a new part of '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' which will feature any manner of snacking product I have been products munching on in the weekKcal 190 Fat 5.0g Fat(sats) 2.0g Carbs 33.0g (per pastry)
'Chocolate toaster pastries with an ice cream flavoured filling'

My friends at AmericanSoda have just recieved their latest shipping container over from Stateside, and they sent me over another parcel full of American sweets and treats to share with you all for my Snack of the Week feature. During the course of the last 5 days I've once again replaced my usual ultra healthy bran based bowl of Kellogg's cereal with these rather less wholesome Kellogg's Pop Tarts Frosted Ice Creme Sandwich toaster pastries - here's what I made of them.

If you recall my previous reviews of Pop Tarts you will have noticed a common theme of me finding them a none to satisfying breakfast option due to the limited amounts I felt I could consume and any one given time. To my surprise this Ice Cream Sandwich variant made a bit of headway on this issue, and for the first time ever I felt a degree of comfort eating two of the pastries in a sitting. This was mainly due to the usual Pop Tarts throat burning sensation being all but absent here, in comparison to other past reviewed flavours these were noticeably less sharp and poignant in their sugary sweetness - [hew! The outer chocolate pastry was a little on the bland side, but when heated it did deliver a chocolate flavour hit to a decent enough standard. The inner filling was surprisingly less sugary than I expected and had a sweet milkyness that had just a hint of vanilla. All in all I still won't be replacing my usual cereal with these, but as an alternative every now and then I could be convinced to get some of these in the toaster.
