Tags:food, friends, funny, polls
Last night at 9:23 pm Pacific, I declared the One True Pop-Tart poll to be over. I left the poll open in case anyone else wants to drop by, but here is the winning screen shot:


Frosted Brown Sugar and Cinnamon wins by a nosehair over Frosted Strawberry, 97 votes to 93, with a total of 254 votes cast.

I do believe this was my post popular poll ever. Jersey Girl in Portland and I will have to review the comments to identify our favorites, and determine an appropriate prize. My thanks to everyone who participated.

As for the original issue? I am pleased to say that my pick prevailed, as I am a Frosted Brown Sugar and Cinnamon aficionado. Jersey Girl in Portland favors that strawberry crap. Though in all fairness, it was pretty much a dead heat throughout the life of the poll.

Clearly we are a nation divided.

A world divided. I think we need to see a geographic breakdown of the data, as formulations vary by country...

I have a feeling that the only one of these flavors available outside the USA is the winning one. Most of the rest of the world is denied frosting (and, indeed, Pop-Tarts).

I'm standing by my frosted blueberry dark horse candidate. Blue and purple foods > other colors of foods (rule-proving exceptions: eggplant and beets *shudder*)

I don't think I've even contemplated having the cinnamon & brown sugar ones (I can make toast with those things on it myself... or move up the deliciousness food chain (but give up substantial convenience) and just make cinnamon rolls).

Now, to try and remember the last time I had a toaster pastry.... I'm pretty sure it's been something like four or five years now.

>>Clearly we are a nation divided.<<

I would like to extend a Pop Tart of friendship across the aisle to those who made a different selection than I. Come, taste my Pop Tart and let me taste yours. Surely there can be peace and harmony among those who disagree.

Holy cats. My fave is the winner? I would have thought, based on my own family, that strawberry would prevail.

Let no forced-choice exercise restrict our ability to co-exist. Though perhaps we favor brown-sugar cinnamon, may we not enjoy the occasional strawberry? May we not live with comity in the company of those who differ? May we not, perhaps, engage in activities to the mutual benefit of all, such as, perhaps, purchasing the milk with which to accompany the Pop-Tart? We may. Come, let us nibble together.

Subject: Split vote
But Jay, the frosted blueberry option obvious split off some of the vote for the fruit-filled pop-tart crowd. Without a similar dessert pop-tart like chocolate in the running to counterbalance we'd have to consider that that 10 blueberry votes (less @etcet's Blueberry confirmation) could be for Frosted Strawberry.

Who am I kidding, I voted for Brown Sugar & Cinnamon. The best pop-tart won! :)

(If you wish to take this as a microcosm for politics, I suggest instead sitting back and enjoying a pop-tart of choice with friends instead.)
