    • anonymous 4 years ago

      really good eating one right now

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Pop Tarts! end of debate.

    • American-Breakfast-Cereals 4 years ago

      We love Pop Tarts and with one of the biggest and best priced ranges in the UK! There is only 1 winner!

    • PaigSr 4 years ago from State of Confussion

      My grandparents always had pop tarts for the kids. Now it is my breakfast food at work. And there is only one kind that I eat - Frosted Brown Sugar and Cinnamon.

      @anonymous: The filling could use improvement. The dough could use less filler ingredients, too, but Pop Tarts has just as many if not more.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Pop tarts! Toaster strudels are just frozen flaky outside with a gelatin inside yuck! Talk about they over sugary frosting. Really all the Toaster strudels have that is OKAY is that you can frost it. ( and it is super hard to even make a smiley face. Pop tarts are portable, tasty, and you don't have to heat them up!!!!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Pop Tarts for the win! When you make Toaster Struedels, they're either

      cold in the middle or burnt on the outside. Pop Tarts are warm on the

      inside, but they don't burn as easily. You can eat them at any

      temperature, and they're portable!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      @natsu poptarts are better in my opinion for the reasons you described

    • JeanJohnson LM 5 years ago

      There is nothing like a Pop Tart

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      POp tarts all the way

    • wendygaga 6 years ago

      I've never even heard of Toaster Struedels so I shoudn't really vote but I love Pop Tarts so I will lol :P

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      They also dont take forever to make!1

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Pop tarts. I love poptarts. WHen I tried toaster strudels, it was horrible.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Pop Tarts are a classical American treat. I hate your face.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Pop tarts are a classical american treat, f**k you toaster strudel

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Pop Tarts. I tried the Toaster Strudel before and it tasted horrible. The only thing good about it is the icing.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      yummy

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Poptarts!I like the chocolate ones the best because they remind me of fudge brownies,you know how the corners of brownie pans are chewey and how brownies have that crust on top that you like to pick off,yeah it's just like that....tastes so good with a cold glass of milk

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Pop Tarts are definitely better...there's nothing really like them! So many varieties, and the flavor of them is just not really in anything else pastry-like. Toaster Strudels are too much like those nasty cheese danishes they have at gas stations or in vending machines. I could make a pastry way better and would rather do that than have one of those, whereas a pop tart is delicious toasted or not (and who knows how they make them, lol).

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Go poptarts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Besides toaster pastry strudels totally tried to copy and they make poptarts look like they suck in the commercials wich they absoulutly do not and poptarts have way more variaties so I say POPTARTS RULE!!!!!!

    • EileenSmith LM 6 years ago

      Strawberry Pop Tarts are more delicious than any Toaster Strudel.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      No mess.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      pop tarts

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Go POP TARTS!

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      Pop Tarts! I have never tasted a Pillsberry Toaster Strudel, but from what I have seen in commercials and comparison videos, I never will want to taste them. Pop Tarts are bigger, frostier, and are from Kellogg's. Pop Tarts have a wider selection of flavors and have sponsored for many movies, games, and many other popular things nationwide. Hands down, POP TARTS FOREVER!

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      i think poptarts because you can eat them even when they are not toasted you cant do that with toaster strudel because it would taste nasty

    • Kyecerulian 7 years ago

      There are some horrible pop tarts (seriously, chocolate?), but if I have my choice of any I'd take the raspberry ones over a toaster strudel.

    • Cynthia Sylvestermouse 7 years ago from United States

      Let me start off my saying, I love Toaster Strudels, but I would have to choose Pop Tarts because they are so convenient and portable. I like being able to munch them in the car or at my computer :)

        While Pop Tarts are more convenient, Toaster Strudels have much more flavor to them. I do not care much for the texture of the Pop Tart, since it is too dry and tough, while Toaster Strudels' texture is warm and soft. The icing is a nice touch too. Toaster Strudels are the kings of breakfast pastries.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Pop tarts have a better taste to it.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        No competition. Toaster strudels are the way to go. Delicious, flaky crust. Warn, gooey filling. Sweet icing. Poptarts are way to dry in my opinion. The only cons are that they are a little more expensive that poptarts and you can't take them on-the-go because they are a bit messy. STRUDELS FOR THE WIN!!!

      • cocomoonbeams 4 years ago

        So much better than Pop Tarts!

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Just because they are like actual food! Pop tarts have the texture of cardboard!

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        They are warm, moist and sweet! Have REAL frosting! When you take that first bite, it isn't all dry crust! DELICIOUS

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Toaster Strudels are better looking.I eat them all day every day. replaces my hooters sometimes. i agree with that guy down there VVV

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Pop Tarts are too sugary and plain tasting while Strudel is fruity and gooey and warm. Pop Tarts are Strudel's ugly twin..

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Pop tarts are only good for on-the-go, but toaster strudels are so tasty, filled to the brim with that fruit filling, and bursting with flavor. Epic win for ze strudels.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Toaster Strudels BY A MILE. They're flakey, and the center is nice and gooey to the point of being able to squeeze it out.

        Plus, you have the choice of icing or no icing, and where you want to put it. As an artist, I think it's fun to draw on my Toaster Strudels with icing! ;D

        AND... They just taste better, frankly. :/

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        so much better!

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I like Pop Tarts, but Toaster Strudels wipe the floor with them.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I like Pop Tarts, but Toaster Strudels destroy them.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        toaster strudels all the wayy!

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        Toaster Strudels outrules pop tarts any dayyy!

      • anonymous 6 years ago

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        - toaster strudels are awesome because they are so good ! ; & creamy , pop tarts are plain Bread !

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        Only because I really liked the chocolate and Smores flavor. I wish theyd bring them back, or back to PA since I havent seen them in along time.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        toaster strudels r freakin amzing!!!!!!!! i would eat them for the rest of my life if i had 2!!!!!!!!

      • RuthCoffee 6 years ago

        aargh, I can't choose just one! Well, I'll say Toater Struedels because they are the bigger indulgence for me...more like a warm fresh jelly donut.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I just like the fruit better.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I've never been fond of pop tarts, but I LOVE toaster strudels :)

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        Toaster Strudels! Pop Tarts suck!

      • Kiwisoutback 7 years ago from Massachusetts

        Toaster strudels! I like fresh frosting, I like the pastry, and I like the fruit filling. To me, there's no comparison. But, I must complain Toaster Strudel is lacking in variety of flavors. There, Pop Tarts have them beat. I've burned my mouth countless times on both, so I can't say that I'm not a Pop Tart fan, too.

      Toaster Strudel vs. Pop Tarts Commercial - Toaster Strudel's dis on Pop Tarts

      Toaster Strudel goes below the belt on this one, and even delivers this commercial in Spanish!

      The average price of a single Pop Tart is .29 on Amazon, versus $3.19 in grocery stores (you can't buy Toaster Strudels online), putting them at around .40 each. The better deal, clearly, is Pop Tarts.

          Sorry strudels but I am a die hard POP TART FAN! To be honest here I have had a few different kinds of the Strudels and they are not for me. Biggest draw back is you can't really eat them unless they were warmed up first. The Pop Tarts you can eat right out of the package. In fact that is how I usually do.

          I didn't care for the toaster strudel when I tried them, if your going to make something hot it should taste good. Pop Tart Amazing :)

          Maybe it's a regional thing, but I don't believe I've ever seen anyone eating a Toaster Strudel. Ever. I recall trying them a couple times, but other than that... Pop Tarts all the way! Great lens.
