Our list of site supporters is almost growing weekly and trust us this is great thing for both ourselves and you - the readers!! How is it good for you I hear you ask!? Well you get to hear about products from way beyond just the UK, the odd ChocolateMission reader discount code never hurts either does it ;-) The latest addition to the ChocolateMission family is YankeePop - you may have noticed their lovely banner in the top right sidebar of the site!! These guys are UK based importers of American sweets and foodstuffs and are a relatively new start up - go pay them a visit and tell us what you make of them @Chocmission & @Yankee_Pop
Some of our most commonly visited reviews on the site are our posts on Kellogg's Pop Tarts, seemingly you folks cant get enough of hearing about all the awesome flavours that they get Stateside. In the theme of being the voice of the people we decided to request these Kellogg's Pop Tarts Cinnamon Roll from our Yankee Pop friends. Fast forward two days later and we had ourselves a 400.0g pack of 8 pastries to munch our way through - breakfast was served.
Now if there is one thing we have come to learn Pop Tarts its that your kitchen is going to be left smelling rather fantastic post their little visit to the toaster. Ladies and Gents things were no different today - in fact they probably smelt the best ever! We were all foaming at the mouth (no rabies!) once the gorgeous cinnamon and pastry smells filled our nostrils, thankfully this wasn't to be a tease to a non-satisfying taste. The combination of buttery, crumbly pastry, sweet as sin icing and sticky cinnamon filling was very nice indeed and was met with a thumbs up all round. The texture was a bit of a moisture vacuum, though this was really a non-issue for most who had a coffee/hot chocolate in close quarters. One was enough for most though some of the team pushed the boat out and obliged the serving suggestion of two.
Overall Kellogg's Pop Tarts Cinnamon Roll get a deserved ChocolateMission thumbs up and were resoundingly enjoyed all round by the tasting panel. We have tried a lot of the Pop Tarts line up now (see the archives HERE) and these are flavour that go beyond some more of the generic flavours in the range which admittedly at times all taste very similar. These Pop Tarts Cinnamon Roll do genuinely deliver on the cinnamon front and manage to create a handy toaster snack that is at least in the ball park of the freshly made cinnamon roll pastries you get from local supermarkets etc. I don't think the ChocolateMission crew would ever get to a consensus on a top 3 Pop Tarts flavours of all time but I don't think these Cinnamon Roll would be missing from many lists.
