Best Childhood Favorite Turned Modern Day Comfort Food
Pop Tarts at Ted’s Bulletin
Saturday mornings growing up had two requisite components: cartoons and Pop-Tarts. The ritual was comforting to the core; the rectangular treat’s sugary icing and jammy payload were the perfect accompaniment to Wile E. Coyote’s Acme-powered hijinks and the Road Runner’s speedy getaways. But as the years went by, this weekend tradition was lost as fancy brunches with The New York Times took over. Thankfully, Ted’s Bulletin is making its own version of Pop-Tarts, so you can relive your childhood any day of the week and at any time. Jack Revelle, a former White House pastry chef, turns out a rotating cast of flavors, such as apple butter, strawberry, brown sugar cinnamon, s’mores and Concord grape. His take on the Kellogg’s classic mimics its look, but tastes much better than the mass-produced breakfast staple. The buttery, flaky crust is the perfect edible envelope to deliver a sweet message to your stomach and heart that happy days are here again.
