Pop Tarts Commercial - FAIL!

Have the Today Show on in the background and just watched a commercial where kids put pop tarts into ice cream - and on a stick...um, random and weird IMO - and SO unhealthy!

If you're eating ice cream 150-350 calories depending on what kind - and then adding 150-250 calories (guessing on these - haven't had a pop tart in a long time) - wow...

I mean, I'm all for adding cookies and things - I just can't see how pop tarts (other than the chocolate one) would be a good addition...

Thoughts? Flames? Agreements?

    I think I have to go buy me some ice cream and pop tarts.  It wouldn't be fair to judge til I taste it for myself, right? Smile

    OMG! That is soooooo unhealthy! No wonder America is obese.  I feel so guilty having one poptart, I haven't had one in as long as I can remember. Wow...what great habits to teach our kids :-) That ice cream tart sandwich probably has 15 grams of fat and 600 calories...possibly more!

    I do!  For some reason, I've been craving my childhood favorites during pregnancy... Spaghetti O's, Pop Tarts, Chicken Nuggets, etc.  The new "Wild Grape" Pop Tarts are heavenly... I'm gonna stop giving into these cravings once LO is born, but it's so much fun to enjoy it while I can!

    But I do agree that stuff THAT unhealthy should not be promoted to kids... only pregnant women.

    I saw that commercial and thought the same thing! As if there arent already enough calories, sugar and fat in just one poptart, now they want you to double it up and add ice cream. Yeah way to promote childhood obesity!

    oh and in 1 pop tart there are 200 calories, 5 grams of fat and almost 40 carbs.

  • Besides the calories, all i can think of is the monstrous amount of carbs! I have Gestational diabetes and I can't have pop tarts due to the carbs/sugars, and can only have 1/2 cup of ice cream at a time (so i dont' have it at all because its not worth it and won't fill me up!)

    That's it?  Now I don't feel so guilty that I eat two at a time.  (Because if you only eat one, then the 2nd one in the foil wrapper gets stale by the time you get around to eating it!)

  • I think about how horrible this is for kids everytime I see the commercial. Pop Tarts are bad enough alone!
  • I do not understand these commercials.  Last year they had a flavor that was like orange dreamsicle and on the box it mentioned you could freeze the poptart and eat it as a dessert.  I thought it was odd, but at least dreamsicle is an ice cream novelty flavor.  Why would I want to put my brown sugar poptart on a stick and freeze it?
