Since their creation in 1967, there have always been two widely accepted ways to eat a Pop-Tart: toasted or right out of the wrapper. But now, thanks to a collaboration with Good Humor ice cream, there’s a brand-new way to enjoy them: frozen!
Well, kind of. While you could obviously make a frozen Pop-Tart yourself by, you know, popping it in the freezer, the two brands have teamed up to create ice cream bars inspired by the iconic Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts.
The dessert bars combine creamy vanilla ice cream with a rich cinnamon core. They are topped with a coating of brown sugar cinnamon crumbles to create a treat that’s crunchy yet creamy. You can find them for sale from various major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.49 for six bars. We found them for $3.77 at Walmart.
Unfortunately for fans of other Pop-Tart flavors, the bars only come in Brown Sugar Cinnamon and a Good Humor representative says there are currently no plans for any other flavors.
Good Humor, does, however, make some other nostalgic ice cream truck favorites, like Strawberry Shortcake, Toasted Almond and Chocolate Éclair. The dessert maker has also teamed up with other well-known brands for frozen treats, including Oreo, Reese’s and the fondly remembered ’90s favorite, Viennetta.
Meanwhile, if you’d rather keep your Pop-Tart toasted and warm, Kellogg’s makes dessert-flavored Pop-Tarts in their original form, so you can still have a sweet treat even if it’s not frozen and on a stick.
You could also try your hand at making your own Pop-Tarts or test out these recipes for strawberry and s’more Pop-Tart pies.
