The Other Pop-Tart

Funny how things work but I had 2 different conversations with 2 different friends today about pop-tarts. I thought that was a good sign for me to give you a healthy alternative to the “regular” pop-tart, which can contain ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils, both of which are products to avoid.

When I went on my search for a healthier alternative I found Nature’s Path Organic Frosted Toaster Pastries. You can buy them at places like Market Street and Whole Foods and even on line. I have included the website.

Now I don’t recommend that you have your kids (or spouses!) eat them every day for breakfast but they are a much better alternative than the regular brand, come in a variety of flavors, are USDA certified organic and best of all…my kids love them!


  1. This is Scott's breakfast of choice!

  2. I'm glad you posted this - I was just the other day wondering about healthy alternatives for Pop Tarts! But do they cost substantially more?

  3. On the Nature's Path On-line store a box of 6 is $3.79. Here is the link.

    I believe Market Street runs sales every so often.
