If you're like me, you may occasionally surprised to discover that things like Pop-Tarts still exist. Mmm, two wafers of hyrolyzed plywood, tightly encasing a layer of synthetic fruitiness. Just pop it in the toaster, take a bite, and find your tongue irreparably burned. But we're being unnecessarily snarky.
“The Pop-Tarts brand is evaluating this successful experience as we plan more exciting activities for 2011 and beyond,” a spokesman for Pop-Tarts parent Kellogg Company told NewYorkology via e-mail today. “Pop-Tarts World was originally created as a test, and its success will assist Kellogg in ongoing efforts to bring brands to life and strengthen bonds with consumers. New York City and Times Square have historically been the epicenter of one-of-a-kind experiences and so it was a perfect location for the Pop-Tarts experience.”
