These New Pop-Tarts Taste Exactly Like Banana Bread

·2 min read

As an unfrosted strawberry and cinnamon roll Pop-Tart die-hard, it's not very often that I stray from my usual. I might be a changed woman, though, because Pop-Tarts released three new fruit dessert-inspired flavors that all might become a part of my rotation.

The flavors include peach cobbler, lemon créme pie, and banana créme pie. I was lucky enough to test all three of them and have to say that overall I was very impressed by the taste and how similar each Pop-Tart was to the dessert it took inspiration from.

All three Pop-Tarts come frosted with the peach cobbler on covered in a layer of bright orange icing, the lemon créme pie covered in a vibrant yellow icing, and the banana créme with a layer or bright white icing on top. I made sure to bite into each enough to get the filling and frosting together for the full affect.

I love all things peach-flavored and the peach cobbler did it just right. It wasn't sweet to the point where your teeth hurt, but tasted exactly like the summer fruit. The outside crust of the Pop-Tart even gave it that cobbler-like crust. Same goes for the lemon créme pie, which I will admit was my least favorite out of the three new flavors. I love lemon desserts because of how citrus-forward they are and think that this one missed the mark just a bit. If you aren't too big on citrus, though, you'll love it.

Love learning about new grocery products before anyone else? So do we. Come hang with us and discover more together.

Banana créme pie was truly the star of the show. Admittedly, I've never eaten a true banana créme pie, so I can't speak to how true the flavor was to its inspo. However, I will say that this Pop-Tart tasted exactly like a piece of homemade banana bread. I imagine after heating it up in the toaster you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the Pop-Tart and a banana bread loaf straight out of the oven—yes, really.

These new Pop-Tarts are available right now at Walmart, with lemon créme pie and peach cobbler available in eight-count boxes and banana créme pie available in 16-count boxes. I, for one, will totally be purchasing these next time I get on a Pop-Tart kick.
