Pumpkin Pie PopTarts Review
These feel like an upgraded version of regular PopTarts, with their festive sprinkles and slight pumpkin spice scent. The sprinkle colors remind us of autumn leaves!
As far as the flavor goes, it is not quite pumpkin pie. In order to truly taste like pumpkin pie it would need more pumpkin flavor and a bit more sweetness in the filling. What this flavor does do well is provide pumpkin spice notes. There are prominent notes of both cinnamon and clove with just a hint of pumpkin flavor. We all agree that a more fitting name for this variety would be ‘Pumpkin Spice PopTarts’.
The spice flavor does mellow out a bit and allow for more pumpkin-like flavor when these PopTarts are warm. Although they may not be true to their namesake in flavor, Pumpkin Pie PopTarts are a nice change of pace from fruity and chocolaty flavors and easily put us in a Fall mood. Pumpkin spice fans are sure to love them!
Summary And Review
The pumpkin spice flavor is definitely present, while the pumpkin is more muted than the name ‘Pumpkin Pie PopTarts’ would suggest.
- Strong cinnamon and clove flavors
- Little actual pumpkin flavor
- More like pumpkin spice than pumpkin pie
All of our reviewers agree that these are perfect if you love pumpkin spice, but may not be for those looking for a strong pumpkin flavor.
