Did You Know

The text of the entry was: Did you know ...that Pop-Tarts are the most popular product made by Kellogg's?

Flavors mess[edit]

Many problems with this section. It starts out saying there are 25 flavors, then goes on to list 40 or so. Also, Frosted dutch Apple is discontinued, but tops the current list. Anyone have a good idea how to clean that all up? Lafong (talk) 04:09, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

The history section of the article also mentions Mint Chocolate Chip and French Toast as if it were a current flavor but it is on the discontinued list later on in the article. Maybe I should change the language a little bit to say that flavors such as Mint Chocolate Chip and French Toast "have been offered"? (sigh ... French Toast was a good flavor...)--RainbowWerewolf (talk) 15:07, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

The newest packages at the store claim there are 27 flavors. But the way Kellogg's determines that - all the different varieties of Brown sugar (frosted, non-frosted, low-fat, etc) are each a different flavor). A bit of a stretch on Kellogg's part, for sure. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mobycat (talkcontribs) 21:39, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Chocolate Vanilla Creme is back in the USA, after having been gone (2007 or so), reintroduced as one of the Ice Cream Shop flavors (2009 or so), and then discontinued again (2010, maybe?). As I'm not a registered user, I'd ask that someone add this (my favorite) flavor to the current list. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:AF3F:5259:79CF:4CCB:4597:D2E2 (talk) 23:56, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Is it really necessary to keep the discontinued flavors list, since its citation has been dead for almost three years? Seems like too much detail for this kind of article. Clarinetguy097 (talk) 04:30, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

You're absolutely right. An encyclopedia is not Kellogg's unsolicited outsourced marketing historians. Fixed. WP:NOTDIR WP:TRIVIA WP:WEBHOSTSmuckola(talk) 23:46, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Flavo(u)rs section[edit]

It looks very unencyclopedic to have both spellings of flavor/flavour in the section. I realize that UK and Australia use the U version, but since the section header does not, neither should the subheaders. 68.51.193.141 (talk) 08:53, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

You're right. Fixed. — Smuckola(talk) 23:46, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Toaster Streudel inclusion?[edit]

Was wondering if the inclusion of this competitor is appropriate for this article? I think not, but would like input before removing that specific content.THX1136 (talk) 17:03, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Personally, I don't see the point of it. Although it does point out how Pop-Tarts are superior to this competitor. Meve Stills (talk) 21:32, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
After re-reading the info in the open - and with no other input than Meve - I would respectfully request that the person with editing access remove the paragraph on Pillsbury Toaster Struedel as inappropriate for this article. Thanks!THX1136 (talk) 16:13, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Available in Sweden[edit]

Hey, since the page is locked for editing I just wanted to inform users that Pop-Tarts are available in Sweden as well. Usually only in specialized U.S. stores but is is getting more and more common in supermarkets around the country. 14:00, 9 July 2016 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.89.235.15 (talk)

In "specialized US stores" you can probably get them around the world. So call again when the average Swede knows what a pop tart even is. (I don't think they do, at least an average German doesn't.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.206.134.129 (talk) 19:11, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

What?[edit]

This article states pop-tarts are "Somewhat similar to a contemporary English mince pie tart" Really? Why specifically an English mince pie tart - is there something unique about them that makes them somewhat more pop-tart-like than other non-English pies or tarts? And why single out mince filling? This appears to be just another case where someone wants to stick in some British reference in an American article - you see it every day on wiki... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.158.48.162 (talk) 13:48, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Somewhat Adequate[edit]

Most of the references are from the actual Kellogg's Company itself, also demonstrating that most of the information is relevant and important to the topics. As well as the citations, most of the links that I looked into redirects you to the exact article being used to reference and there is not close paraphrasings, besides the facts of when and where the Pop-Tarts originated from. However, I did notice that the newest flavors have not been updated, for instance, all of the new "limited edition' flavors posted on the Pop-Tarts website, like Maple Bacon, Lemonade, and Vanilla Latte, are nowhere to be mentioned throughout the article- therefore the article is not really up to date. Nmora052 (talk) 23:15, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

It was discussed and decided in 2015 that listing all the past, current, and limited edition flavors was unencyclopedic. If there are any particularly noteworthy flavors they might be worthy of mention.Allegrorondo (talk) 14:10, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
