    New Chocolate Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts

    Varieties of Pop-Tarts, like varieties of Oreos, proliferate so rapidly I can't keep up. Well, honestly, I don't really want to because I've always been more of a fan of Toaster Strudel, whose buttery flaky exterior make Pop-Tarts taste like stale matzoh in comparison.

    Odd Pair: Chocolate Pop-Tarts and Brachetto d'Acqui

    ​Yes, toast-able breakfast pastries and wine. It's come to that.
