Pop Tarts were ahead of their time. They debuted in the '60s as a "toaster pastry." But NOBOBY toasted 'em -- they would always get burnt on the edges, too crispy and the filling too hot. But then, in the '80s, microwave ovens came along. Pop Tarts proved to be the PERFECT nukable -- they would warm up, but not burn, and the pastry part would get soft! There's a downside, though. They make you REALLY, REALLY FAT.
