Eggo Frosted Maple Syrup Flavor Pop-Tarts Are a Sweet Reality

Why no one ever thought to fuse together an Eggo waffle with a Pop-Tart is a wonder to me. But I’m glad the big-brained folks at Kellogg’s finally got around to this fantastic fusion by debuting Eggo Frosted Maple Flavor Pop-Tarts this December.

Here’s the rundown on this new toaster pastry hero:

  • A flaky, buttery-yellow crust, reminiscent of an Eggo waffle. 
  • A sweet, maple-flavored filling. 
  • White icing topped with a waffle-like grid pattern made from yellow-string icing. 

Y’all catch that? It’s basically a Pop-Tart with an Eggo waffle-like crust. *Insert mind blown emoji here*

New Eggo Frosted Maple Syrup Flavor Pop-Tarts will hit shelves nationwide starting in December with an MSRP of $2.99 for an 8-count box.
