Review and giveaway: Pop-Tarts Sprinkly Ice Cream Bites



This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Kellogg’s® Pop-Tarts® Toaster Pastries.


When our family was asked if we'd like to do a Pop-Tarts review, the kids practically pushed me away from the computer and typed "YES!!!" themselves. Heh. We kind of like Pop-Tarts around here. When we found out we'd get to sample a new flavor and try out an Easter recipe with it, well shoot you should have seen the grins.

A few days later, we heard a knock at the door and found an entire case of Strawberry Milkshake Pop-Tarts. The girls screamed and started jumping up and down singing "We have PopTarts... we have PopTarts!" over and over. It was kind of funny. Loud, but funny.

Anyhow, I think we were supposed to wait for recipe day to try the Pop-Tarts, but, um, it didn't happen. That box barely hit our foyer before it was ripped open and the girls were chewing. And man was that new flavor a hit.



On official recipe day, we printed out the directions for Sprinkly Ice Cream Bites from the Kellogg's web site and got right to work. (Ro is in the white sundress, and Ree is wearing the backwards yellow cardigan, in case you wondered.) This recipe has only three ingredients, and the girls could do everything themselves (always a bonus in our house).

Alrighty, here's what we did:

Grabbed a box of Strawberry Milkshake Pop-Tarts (hm, this case used to be full...):
DSC_2551LR

Cut each of the Pop-Tarts into four pieces. The girls did this easily using butter knives. (Notice I said "easily" not prettily. Heh heh.):
DSC_2553LR

Put a scoop of ice cream between two Pop-Tart pieces and squished it together:

Rolled the edges of each ice-cream sandwich in sprinkles:

Hey, not bad!:
DSC_2569LR

Yeah, this looks pretty tasty:
DSC_2576LR

Let's see:
DSC_2568LR

Yummmmmm!:
DSC_2580LR

How many do we get to eat? Hmmmm?:
DSC_2588LR

The girls definitely liked the new Pop-Tarts, and the Sprinkly Ice Cream Bites recipe (in pretty pastels, just in time for Easter!). And I might have eaten one too. Ok it was two. Alright fine, it was three little ice cream sandwiches. Ahem.

This would be a really fun do-it-yourself dessert bar to have at a kid's party. You could put out a whole bunch of pre-cut Pop-Tarts in a wide variety of flavors, have little ice-cream balls that you had scooped out and frozen ahead of time (again in a variety of flavors), and a whole bunch of bowls of sprinkles. The kids would go crazy for these.

As Ro said on the video, "four thumbs up," one from each person in our family. :-)

"Opameal" (oatmeal)

I hated it as a kid but my kids LOVE it! Maybe it has something to do with all the sugar we put on it.

Bacon makes everything better. And it is a wonderful Easter morning breakfast with eggs, potatoes, OJ, and tea. Did you know I make a mean New England Clam Chowder with the base being bacon?? mmmmm.

Our favorite breakfast involves lots of BACON, fried eggs, pancakes, and REAL maple syrup. Lots of sticky fingers and faces, too. :)

Scones and OJ with fresh straw berries are yummy. But Poptarts are oh so much more likely to happen than the scones, strawberries & OJ.

Sharon said...

Well, my favorite breakfast includes chorizo (or regular sausage), egg and cheese breakfast tacos and anything with bacon....my daughter is a big fan of the pop tarts though, so a family breakfast would have to include those! I love this recipe idea and will have to give it a try....for snacktime of course, though breakfast would be good too. :)

Favorite breakfast here at this house is WAFFLES with syrup, and fried eggs, bacon and fresh-squeezed orange juice! YUM!

fuzzandfuzzlet said...

I am not a morning person. My kids get a lot of Cheerios for breakfast ;)

DH will sometimes do pancakes. I guess we are not big on family breakfast.

On a side note. A friend of mine can not have family dinner because of her DH`s work schedule, so they have a big family breakfast every single morning. I think that is kind of cool.

NeuroMama said...

Our favorite breakfast includes fakin' bacon (I know, that's a sacrilege to the salsa gang) and eggs, sunnyside up.

I gotta admit that I haven't eaten a Pop Tart since college and my kids have never had one. Just the fake colors and all the sugar make me cringe. But, believe me, they eat plenty of other junk foods (just the salty ones that their mama prefers)!

Brandi said...

our favorite breakfast is homemade waffles with whipped topping & cherry pie filling. Delish!

We have just started enjoying smoothies with our waffles. Can only really do this on Saturdays or Sundays but, once in awhile we have this favorite breakfast for dinner-now that is a hit!

Our all time favorite family breakfast is my husbands famous "One Eyed Sailors" You take a piece of bread..butter both sides. Take a small wine glass and use the rim of it to make a circle in the bread. Put the bread in a pan, crack open an egg and drop it in the hole..cook for a few minutes and then flip the bread over and cook a little longer. Waaa La ! One Eyed Sailors.
Not really sure where it got it's name, but it's super yummy and easy & the kids Love it !

Phew....had to go a looong way down to leave my comment.

Those pop tarts look super yummy and even though they're not available yet I might just have to go out and buy poptarts tomorrow. Oh wait....there's a box with one package left in it downstairs. Oh heck, will still need to go out and buy more tomorrow since those will be consumed as a bedtime snack tonight!

Favourite breakfast? Bagel with cream cheese and bacon. Why not get an entire day's worth of calories in one single meal?

My favorite is a dish called "moose" passed down from my grandfather. It is scrambled pancakes eaten in a bowl with syrup like milk on top! It's called moose b/c my grandfather would call everyone to breakfast with a moose call.

Favorite family breakfast is either scrambled eggs with salsa or Marsh mallow Mateys (a Lucky Charm knockoff)...but the three year old only eats the marshmallows!

On weekends daddy likes to make pancakes for his girls (my and my 3yo!) He doesn't even like pancakes! He's the best!

Coffee, pink grapefruit and a cinnamon raising english muffin. The Jammer always loves his grapes and "drawderries" and the other item varies between a bagel, cereal, french toast, cereal bar or waffles. You never know what mood he will be in each day.

Oh and he likes pop tarts too but we don't let him have them often. He is one crazy boy when he is on a sugar high.

P.S. You'll giggle to know that I've been indulging in the Lucky Charms since returning home from China. Being sleep deprived has caused me to comsume a lot more sugar than I normally do. Whatever I need to get through the day. Right?
