I go for the old fashioned strawberry Pop Tarts and lemon-lime Gatorade.

After a ride, for a real treat (i.e., rode a bunch of miles and can rationalize it), take unfrosted P-Tarts, toast them, and then slather them with butter - and then for the piece de resistance - sprinkle with sugar. UMMM! Wash it down with chocolate milk.

You are one sick puppy! ;-)MB1

Rum balls. Miss M discovered rum balls at a bakery half way through a recent cold, wet, windy ride. Now she makes 'em for us. Talk about a great post cold ride treat, yummmmmmm...

BTW Orange Gatorade from powder. The pre-mixed store bought stuff tastes quite a bit diferent, I wonder if the ingredients are the same?

Basic strawberry Pop-Tarts (SPT's) may be a cheap and inexpensive source of incendiary devices. Toasters which fail to eject Pop Tarts cause the Pop Tarts to emit flames 10-18 inches in height. Enjoy the complete humurous experiment at:

If your toaster catches on fire, it's because it's trying to tell you not to toast Pop Tarts! It ruins them. It's like cooking vegetables--all the good stuff gets cooked out.

And another thing: Pop Tarts must be frosted. I can only assume that unfrosted Pop Tarts have ascended directly from hell.

Finally, Brown Sugar Cinnamon is the best flavor. The other flavors are good, too, but the magical combination of brown sugar and cinnamon is heavenly.

I've done two Death Rides on Pop Tarts. I could probably ride the Tour de France if I had a sufficient supply of Pop Tarts.

Yes, the Brown Sugar Cinnamon is the gourmet entry of the Pop-Tart selection. Mick had it right "Brown Sugar, how cum ya taste so good?".

Toasting Pop-Tarts? Well, I use a toaster to warm them up, but never enough to change the crust color. I leave the frosted ones for the kids... too much sugar for me!
Why are there no MomTarts? Wait, maybe some are tarts already!bikedodger

Really? Yuck. I prefer to get my sinful indulgence in pure, unadulterated chocolate and/or icecream. Icecream with chocolate, cookie dough, choc covered peanuts, pretzels, you name it, if it's covered with chocolate, it's fair game! (perhaps not ants, though!) God bless Ben and Jerry, patrion saints of sinfully delicious icecream!

Those smores pop tarts that my kids have are real tempting! Problem is, I'd have to eat the whole box to satisfy my hunger, and that's what, about a jillion calories of pure, unadulterated sugar!?

Hey, can I follow you in a paceline? I have trouble because, well, smaller riders don't create much of a draft! (However, if it's a woman w/ nice legs and a nice tush, it really doesn't matter, does it?)

Thats My Job!BigLeadOutGuy

Pop tarts- they are evil.C-mond

I have been eating them hard-core for about 2years. Then I decided to stop. I ate the brown sugar ones- low them better than the normal ones. I would eat 3 of them and then go work out with my teammates (who were cutting weight at the time). I would joke with them and tell them that I just ate the same amount of calories they were allowed in a day. And that was not a meal, ha/

I would love a poptart now. But it can't lead to anything good. So I will just grab my banana powerbar and try not to think about it.

Guess I have gotten used to it, empty calories are bad.
