The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

28 July 2005

Their condition is listed as "stable"

I griped last year that unfrosted blueberry Pop-Tarts® were hard to come by. And things have not improved, so on the rare occasion when I see them, I grab an extra box.

There was one box left in the pantry today, and there was one box on the shelf at the grocery, so I bought that one box, schlepped it home, pulled out the old box and moved it to the front — rotating the ol' stock, doncha know — and looked at the date: 26 February 2006. Well, these'll be gone long before that, I thought.

And then, pivoting the new box into position, I looked at the date: 26 February 2006.

Kellogg's, evidently, only produces a batch of these when they darn well feel like it.

One other non-frosted flavor — strawberry — occasionally appears. Maybe I should start watching their dates.
