What’s a pistol-packing, AK-47 owning, sociopath to eat in the upcoming zombie apocalypse? Why, Kellogg’s Hello Kitty Meow-Berry PopTarts, of course.

Let me tell you, these things are pretty fucking good. Like “omg I hope I’m not susceptible to type II diabetes” good. They have a dark “berry” filling of some kind, with pink frosting, and multicolored sugar stars atop the frosting. The Meow-Berries are much better if they are toasted, but if you’re pressed for time they taste okay cold. Do yourself a favor and take one packet out at a time, and lock the rest in something sturdy. Watch out for the gnarly artificial flavoring aftertaste — I recommend chasing your Meow-Berries with a cup or seven of coffee.

Of course, into every life a little rain must fall. The bad news is that a pair of pastries will set you back 400 calories and account for over a quarter of your RDA in fat. You could eat one at a time, but what fun is that? Eat the whole packet and then plan on an extra hour or two at the gym.

    I’m omw to the store now due to a dessert craving. Glad I checked the journal b4 I got out the door. I think I’ll add these to my cart! Wonder if I can finish a box while playing GoW? Bachelorhood + fast metabolism = bliss

    Oh my Flying Spaghetti Monster, those pop-tarts are *adorable*! And… Meow-berry. Awww. 🙂

    Decided to pick up my first box of Pop-Tarts in a long time based on the review.
    My first thought – “Wow, that’s a mighty pink box!” Amazingly, it only occurred to me as I was typing that that could be taken in an unintended way.
    Toast up a package the next morning, and they’re quite tasty. Didn’t get the artificial aftertaste, but got a strange feeling in a molar 2/3 of the way through the second tart. After a few seconds, I realized what I was feeling. I had never before felt tooth decay in action. Seriously. I think if I were to eat a package of these chased with a Coke, my jaw may dissolve a la Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    That said, I’m looking forward to a bit of Meow-berry tomorrow.
