Could something go wrong? Yeah probably. Pop-tarts aren't exactly known for their structural integrity, but there are so many possible combinations of poptart flavors and ice cream fillings that I can't help myself. I'm shocked that this has been hitting so many of us as a new idea (apparently in 2010 it was quite the rage). Carl's Jr has gotten themselves a whole lot of free press for this idea, so let's see if it pans out.
On Second Scoop: Are you one of those people that deep down fears your pop-tart with go out in a blaze of glory if you stick it in the toaster? Well, I am, but you know I had to go back and try this with a hot poptart right? So I did and man oh man was it the right move. You know how regular poptarts kind of have that unique crusty flavor to them? Toasting turns that down and then amplifies the flavor of the filling which brought this treat up another notch or two. Plus the toasting adds a bit of crispness to the poptart, bringing this more inline with the texture of a standard cookie ice cream sandwich. You need to try this, just keep a few napkins (or kitchen sink) handy.
Verdict? Good Idea! Try This!
Build Again? YES!
