I haven’t had a Pop-Tart in over 15 years, so when I spied a few prototypes on a colleague’s desk, I decided to investigate further. If you’re out of practice, like I was, you might want to follow this handy guide.
Step 1: Find your Pop-Tarts
This was easy for me, as I’d spotted them on Mel’s desk a few days prior and had been plotting my stealthy approach ever since. Luckily she wasn’t in, so I snuck past the guards and pocketed a couple of the ‘Choctastic’s.
Step 2: Read the Instructions
I took a picture of the instructions, but didn’t bother reading them. As you can see from the picture below, there’s a heavy dose of red writing and “ZOMG! DANGER” which always makes me switch off instantly.
Step 3: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS
After slotting my Pop-Tarts in the toaster, (pfft! How hard can it be?!) I idly pottered around our kitchen area looking for someone to annoy, when I found the Pop-Tart box catching my eye. Suddenly the warnings seemed more important. I glanced at the box, then back to the toaster and panicked. I’d decided to toast the Pop-Tarts on the highest setting, foolishly believing that I should “go big, or go home!”and confronted with the possibility of a nuclear explosion decided to intervene and turn the dial down.
Step 4: Enjoy
After you’ve toasted your Pop-Tarts, feel free to present them in whatever style you’re accustomed to. Personally I decided to dress the plate like so:
Molten hot in the centre, slightly burned on the outside, and delicious.
