I am so excited to share this awesome and totally Gina Approved find! If you haven’t tried the new Legendary Foods Pop Tart yet, you are missing out. Here’s my honest review. You know I only post and share about things I truly LOVE!
I’ll be honest, I didn’t buy these tasty pastries. A good friend of mine gave them to me to try. Initially, I was intrigued by such an iconic product. The bright purple colored packaging and little pop tart cartoons reminded me of the ones I had as a kid. I use to LOVE Pop Tarts. While I didn’t have them often, since my mom never had them in the house, when I could get my hands on one they were always my fav!
These new Tasty Pastry’s claim to have only 3g to 4g Net Carbs, and 9g of protein. I haven’t even thought about pop tarts in years, since they are kind of “off limits” but I had to give these a try.
Regular pop tarts are pretty much made of sugar and carbs, so I wanted to see if a low carb version was even possible.
My friend gave me a couple of the strawberry flavor and the brown sugar cinnamon. I’m not normally a brown sugar person, so I tried the strawberry flavor first. The box suggested that I ‘lightly toast’ it. So I popped it in the toaster for about 20 seconds.
Let’s just say, NAILED IT! Not sure how Legendary Foods did it but they did, Wow! The dough was incredibly soft and moist. It didn’t crumble at all. The strawberry filling was perfect thickness and the sweet glaze on top seemed to melt in my mouth.
I also tried the brown sugar cinnamon but I didn’t toast this one. I wanted to see how it tasted cold. It was actually still really good. Perfect to put in your purse when you need something out and about…
I’m definitely going to recommend Legendary’s Tasty Pastry as a Gina Approved food on all my PLANS. It is the perfect fat swap for any of my programs! Yes that means you can swap your almonds, avocado or any of our 1 serving fat exchanges (9 grams) with a POP TART! It is the perfect treat when you are craving something sweet!
Overall, I would say that Legendary Foods did an AMAZING job creating this never been done before, low carb pop tart. The best part is, my kids love them too! Busy mom’s, breakfast in 10 seconds- double winning!
I cannot wait for you to try them and let me know what you think! It is all about finding ways (and products) to help us stay on track our G-Fit lifestyle!
