mint choc chip pop tart

They were free-sampling these last nite over at nokia, thus providing me w/ an instant blog item: mint choc chip pop tarts. so what, right? except that the mktg campaign for these is all about eating them frozen; the pop-tart peeps were handing them out ice-cold (from a retro-looking fridge). other priorities prevented me from eating it on the spot, as served, icy-cold (and besides, it seemed vital to get it home unscathed for a pic); after sampling it at room temp, I just hope it tastes better cold. Talk about sweet. Yuck. But how clever to push it as a snack competing w/ ice cream/novelty items, potentially expanding the pop-tart audience past the breakfast crowd.

TG, you're a pop tart. And I mean that in only the best way.

Who wants to eat a plank of frozen pastry? I'm sure people have to be really REALLY high to attend an American Idol show. But even then it doesn't seem like it'd be appealing.

So, she's out now. Isn't she cute? And, yeah, I banged the hell out of Katie Couric back when she was almost-presentable. I've always felt pity for her. I don't know why.

i wonder if marv will eat his mint choc chip pop tarts frozen, as prescribed by the kellogg elves

is bk teasing about the 12-minute solos at the american idol show? cuz that lame backup band did have a guitarist who did a long, annoying wah-wah solo during Superstition, and another long solo during some dipshit's cover of Whole Lotta Love.

i am no pop tart. i know a pop tart, and i am no pop tart.
