It’s been a big summer so far for Starbucks. The company just can’t stop adding new drinks to its menu — and we’re definitely not mad about it. First there was the Nitro Cold Brew, then the rainbow-colored teas started popping up all over Instagram, and most recently the Teavana Shaken Iced Berry Sangria Herbal Tea and the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato were introduced.
And now the company is introducing a bakery item we didn’t see coming, but are really glad it’s happening — Pop-Tarts! They’re calling the breakfast/dessert hybrid “Megpies artisan tarts,” which is basically just a fancy way of saying Pop-Tart.
Created by Meghan Ritchie at Smorgasburg market in Brooklyn, the flaky butter crust is filled with jam and lathered in frosting. The fancy-fied Pop-Tarts come in two flavors: strawberry and brown sugar-cinnamon — obviously the best original Pop-Tart flavors (in my humble, ’90s Pop-Tart-loving opinion).
The new bakery addition will only be available at Starbucks stores in New York City to start, but will soon be sold nationwide.
They’re going for $4 a piece… so these grownup Pop-Tarts better be as delicious as they look!
