This is the first thread I've so if it's weird that may be why.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I don't know about you but I really enjoy (and always have) enjoyed eating poptarts. However before eating one I don't think I would ever think about poptarts having gelatin in them. But all of us vegans & vegetarians luck they do. :-( anyway, I just thought I would share this with everyone.

Never really preferred Pop-Tarts myself. They're considered a breakfast food, and a horrible one at that.<br><br><br><br>
I like my tofu scramble in the morning. ^_^

Just get the unfrosted ones-- no gelatin. I LOVE brown sugar cinnamon. I have some in the pantry right now. Yeah, there's no question they're a horrible food... that's why they're right at the top of my list of <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=56798" target="_blank">Guilty Pleasures</a>!

The co-op I go to has healthy pop-tart esque toaster pasteries. Some have frosting, though I'm not sure if it has gelatin or not... However, unfrosted pop-tarts don't have gelatin.<br><br><br><br>
(On the breakfast foods front.. in case you didn't know, frosted mini wheats frosting also has gelatin)

I loved the brown sugar cinnamon ones. I liked them with frosting, but since going veg, the unfrosted brown sugar ones with some kind of buttery spread are awe-some. Ok..someone needs to invent some raw ones.

Heh! Aren't breakfasts SUPPOSED to be filled with unhealthy, sugary, bad-for-you yumminess?<br><br><br><br>
I can't stomach much of anything in the mornings, just never have been much for breakfasts. But my kids? They LOVE the unfrosted ones if I break down and buy them. Which I do.

I like the unfrosted pop tarts. I haven't had any others since becoming vegan. I loved toter stroodles, haven't had those since being vegan either. Don't trust foods with chemicals in the ingredients....

I do like frosted pop-tarts. I'll buy the chocolate or vanilla fudge ones every once in a great great while. They're too expensive and too fattening to buy very often though. Gelatin doesn't bother me, so I don't care about that. Sometimes I'll get unfrosted strawberry though, which is okay too.<br><br><br><br>
But I prefer trail mix bars myself anyways, healthier and tastier.

I've always preferred the unfrosted ones anyway, so it's no biggie to me. I have unfrosted brown sugar cinnamon ones in my pantry and yes, they are vegan. Loaded with refined flour, refined sugar, partially hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup, but vegan. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

Maybe it's just me, but I've always found pop tarts to be gross. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

i used to love chocolate chip cookie dough, oreo, and strawberry poptarts. I ate them when i was little and unaware of the sugars and calories. Now that im older and know more about nutrition, i would prefer a healthier breakfast
