The Weirdest Pop-Tart Flavors That Actually Taste Good

8. Root Beer

It’s like dipping a chocolate cookie in an ice cream float, and we’re not upset about it. (The filling has such a powerful root beer flavor that it almost tastes fizzy on your tongue.) Taste-testers ranked it far above Pop-Tart’s other new flavor, Orange Crush, which could only be compared to a “melted Tootsie Pop found underneath your car seat on a hot summer’s day.”

7. Watermelon

This flavor can be incredibly polarizing: If you like watermelon Jolly Ranchers, you’ll go crazy for this filling. If that’s too sweet for your tastes, move on to No. 6.

6. Hot Fudge Sundae

This Pop-Tart has so many things going on, and thankfully, none of them are artificial banana flavoring. The chocolate toaster pastry has a subtle cocoa flavor, but the vanilla filling and sprinkle-dusted frosting is what won over taste-testers. Store them in your freezer for the full sundae experience.

5. Blue Raspberry

Breakfast this isn’t. The electric blue raspberry filling tastes a lot like Airheads, making it perfect for anyone who loves a jolt of flavor that’s far from anything seen or tasted in nature. Served cold or hot, it makes for a great late-night snack.

4. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Prepackaged, eggless cookie dough can often taste gritty and Play Doh-like. Thankfully, that’s not the case here. Our only complaint is that we wanted a super-stuffed variety. (But then again, isn’t the pastry-to-filling ratio everybody’s issue with Pop-Tarts? Nobody wants that first all-crust bite.)

3. PB&J Strawberry

It’s even better than your go-to elementary school sandwich.

2. Wild!Berry

Don’t let that bright purple color scare you away—this is like a classic frosted strawberry Pop-Tart taken to the next level. Some said it tasted like Trix cereal … and loved it.

1. Pumpkin Pie

This flavor only comes around in the fall—AKA Pumpkin Spice Everything Season—and it’s worth hunting down in stores and stockpiling. The pumpkin pie filling tastes better than any grocery store pie we’ve tried, and warmed up, it’s pure heaven.
