Try this experiment: ask an odd number of Jews if they have any memories of breakfast involving Pop-Tarts, and we would be willing to wager that a much higher percentage of the people polled would say they never had the flat, pre-baked toaster pastries in their breakfast cabinet as kids. 

This isn’t a kosher/non-kosher thing: it’s a Jewish thing.  There is something so incredibly goyish about Pop-Tarts that we can’t even begin to understand, and that is why we will probably never set foot in Pop-Tart World.

Who’s brilliant idea was this place?  If "Pop-Tart Sushi" (three different types of Pop-Tarts minced and then wrapped in a fruit roll-up) doesn’t sound like an entry to This is Why We’re Fat, and doesn’t automatically make you think "this is why the terrorists hate us," then I’m not sure what else we can say.
