I love Pop-Tarts … particularly the frosted brown sugar variety and all the ones that involve chocolate chip cookie dough. I'll open a package with the intention of eating just one and, every time, I'll eat both of them. Kellogg is counting on me to do just that. And, yes, sometimes I chew around the edges to get rid of the part that doesn't have any filling and save the "good part" for last. I realize that Pop-Tarts are far from nutritious but they're so darned tasty and, even more so, convenient that I often can't resist.
Seven-year old Joshua Welch of Baltimore likes them, too. Recently, while he was enjoying a strawberry Pop-Tart, his creativity got the better of him and he decided to reshape his breakfast by nibbling on its edges.
"All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but it didn't look like a mountain, really, and it turned out to be a gun … kinda." – Joshua Welch
Due to a zero tolerance policy related to guns, Joshua was suspended from Park Elementary School.
His teacher, apparently, thought the results of his pastry biting definitely looked like a gun and, what's more, she claimed that she saw the boy who lives with ADHD hold on to the Pop-Tart and utter the words "bang bang."
