    18 Pop-Tarts alerts police about Illinois man who spreads mustard on his breakfast pastry

    Pop-Tarts alerts police about Illinois man who spreads mustard on his breakfast pastry
    Michael Bartiromo
    6 days ago


    The people behind Pop-Tarts are fed up with a Midwesterner who enjoys his breakfast pastry with mustard, so they’ve taken the only logical step they could think of: They’ve contacted the Illinois State Police.

    The Pop-Tarts brand first became aware of the odd flavor combination on Tuesday, after an Illinois man proclaimed his love for spreading yellow mustard atop his Dunkin’ Donuts Vanilla Latte-flavored Pop-Tarts.

    “You guys aint [sic] from Illinois if you don’t put mustard on your poptarts [sic],” wrote the man in a now-deleted Twitter post which also contained a photo of his mustard-topped pastry.

    In response, the official Twitter account of Pop-Tarts retweeted the man’s post and tagged the Illinois State Police Department, asking them to intervene.

    “Can you guys handle this[?]” they asked.

    Though no one from the Illinois State Police responded, the police department of Dixon, Ill., came forward on Wednesday to offer its services. “Ain’t nobody puttin’ mustard on their Pop-Tarts in Illinois,” they wrote.

    Pop-Tarts later retweeted the Dixon PD’s message, thanking them for their support. “Due to the severity of the crime, we need all the help we can get,” the company added.

    As of Thursday morning, Pop-Tarts says it considers the battle to be “won,” as the Illinois offender deleted his original Twitter post.

    Judging by their Twitter activity, the people at Pop-Tarts have been critical of strange Pop-Tart flavor mash-ups over for a few weeks now, beginning with the Iowa student who shared his idea for a Pop-Tarts-and-cheese sandwich.

    They’ve also tolerated a New Yorker who dipped his Pop-Tarts in hot sauce and an Oklahoman who dipped hers in ranch dressing, though they said they found the latter combination to be especially “disrespectful.”


    Mustard, however, seemed to be the condiment that broke the camel’s back, at least as far as Pop-Tarts — a company that has, at one time or another, offered "Root Beer," "Maple Bacon" and "Orange Crush" varieties — was concerned.

    That said, this probably won’t be the last time Pop-Tarts resorts to calling the authorities. As of Thursday morning, they had already tried contacting Alaska’s state police about an altogether new abomination:

    Adding something to pop=tarts must violate someone's copyright. I'm surprised they didn't contact the FBI.

    Putting mustard on them would create something with a smidgen of nutritional value....not a pop-tart standard.

    That's horrible. If I was Pop Tarts I'd have hired a hitman. No one that puts Mustard on a pop tart deserves to live.

    If they eat it, they're not likely to.

    I love mustard a lot. But I would never have thought to put it on Pop Tarts. Not that I ever eat Pop Tarts. Not since I was about 24 or so. So much $$$$ for so much nothing but bad.

    Should I be worried too ?

    Pop Tarts called the cops on someone for putting mustard on the tarts? Trump should hire them and turn them loose on the Clintons. Bill and Hillary wound be in jail in a week!

    Grandson eats Jack Daniels BBQ sauce on my homemade biscuits, & if I can stand the insult, Pop Tarts should be able to stand it, too.

    LOL! I suspect this is some Millennial's idea of a "viral marketing campaigh". And while its working to a certain extent (it's probably the first time "pop-tarts" has crossed my mind than before said Millennial was born!) , I'd say spamming the cops is probably a bad idea, overall.

    and those that eat them end up with diabetes and die? Trade off maybe?

    It'd take a whole lot more than mustard to make a pop tart taste good, blech!
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    That might actually be good though, especially if there was steak to go with the combination!

    Jack Daniels recently changed their BBQ sauce recipe and ruined it. It was my only sauce for years. I wrote a scathing letter to the company informing them of their egregious actions. They sent me coupons. I threw them out, along with their sauce.

    I can honestly say I have never purchased a pop tart.

    Is that legal, or does the government specify how many one must purchase in a lifetime? Will I get a fine added onto my taxes?

    I use to, but quit due to the Roundup/grain/sugar issue. They have organic pop tarts at Costco that taste the same as the regular junkfood version. I really don't care for the taste but when I'm busy and don't want to take time to prep something decent, I can eat half of one to tide me over. Also not liking them prevents me from eating them as a snack, so they last a very long time. I'm not sure mustard would help the taste, to be honest.
