Ironically, until this post, I have never wanted a pop tart ice cream sandwich. Now I must have one. I don't even like pop tarts.

I thought this was serious but then I saw it was you.

Does anyone remember chocotacos? Those were great!


Chocotacos are very fine. I also remember one from kidhood called a GrahamDaddy that was butter pecan ice cream between two graham crackers with a thin coating of hard butterscotch (like the stuff they dip your cone in at DQ).

I should not be on this thread right now.

HA! This is so funny to me. I have a popsicle, or if I am feeling CRAZY i will have a frozen eggo waffle (still frozen) with cool whip frosting on top. Still not the same, but sweet and cold and chewy.

I have an amazing pasta substitute as well!

Take:

cut the paper towels and roll them into little spirals, just like pasta!

Add: 2 parts water mixed in with 1 part low sodium ketchup...

Voila! A great a easy, low cal pasta substitute for when you have that carb craving. Sometimes I get a little adventurous and sprinkle on some of Cocoa's cat nip on it (only 5 calories!!!) in place of herbs.

Oh! And don't forget to eat it while watching food network! Helps boost the flavors and texture of the paper towel and aid you with your imagination wink

When I have a really strong urge to get a triple chipotle whopper w cheese meal (onion rings of course, and russian dressing instead of ketchup) from BK, a large chocolate frosty from wendy's with crumbled oreo in it, a large apple pie a la cold stone from cold stone, and a dozen donuts from Dunkin, here's what I do:

I get a head of broccoli and boil it for an hour so any taste it once had is now gone. Then I put a tiny dash of chipotle seasoning and a quarter teaspoon of onion powder. I serve it up on a paper 'plate' made of pictures of apple, chocolate, oreos, and donuts...

...then I realize that I'd rather go out on a dinner date with the coach than eat that.

Here is a good alternative to just ice cream

This thread was funny, but got a lot funnier due to the people defending the OP because they thought she was serious.

Also reading this made me want an poptart ice cream sandwich.


And it's even FUNNIER that you called Bill a she. :) I have the junk pix to say different

Wait, what?


Haha, now that IS funnier. I saw the name and rolled with "a" as being feminine, Bill Sica didn't cross my mind.

I do not understand how rice cakes are even a thing. I do not know anyone who can willfully digest one, much less feign enjoyment. I think the ones I see on grocery store shelves must have been put there in like 1983, and they are just waiting it out to mock survivors of the zombie apocalypse.
"You wanted food?! HA! There's nothing left but rice cakes and split pea soup mix!"

Dear OP: GTFO.

No thanks.

I'd try it. I like rice cakes and bananas and I'll try anything once. drinker

I tried spaghetti squash as spaghetti once too. frown sick
Better to add it to something like, oh, I don't know, PASTA.

Wahhhhh.... came in for serious thread is serious thread then peoples are mean and a a guy is a girl and now am finding outses this thread is a LIE?!?

What madhouse IS this?!?!!?
April 26, 2013 1:51 PM
Okay, I'm all about nutrition....and I don't even LIKE pop tarts and can't eat "real" ice cream (yes I eat skinny cow, weight watchers or so delicious) b/c it has too much fat and it hurts my stomach ...but that is just horrid! A rice cake is like eating cardboard; no way are they good for anything but maybe providing cushioning in a delicate package you're shipping.

I'm sorry...fail. Not ice cream, not pop tart...in no way eatable.

Is it weird that I've never even heard of ice cream and Pop tarts as being "a thing" until I've been looking at the message boards on MFP?

The closest thing to pop tarts that I can think of would be the Kellogs Special K Pastry Crisps. Those are good. And I suppose you could but some frozen yogurt in between them? Or I have heard great things about the yonanas but have not tried it. That kind of sounds like what the OP was trying to accomplish with the frozen mashed up bananas. But yeah, rice cakes are terrible. I feel bad for my dad who has no other choice than to eat them (he has celiac's disease and uses it as a quick and easy substitute for bread). Interestingly enough, he spreads them with peanut butter and cuts up banana on top. happy

Well, someone suggested waffles. Aren't some waffles made with whole grains? And frozen yogurt instead of the ice cream.

Although the Pop-Tart ice cream sandwich does look tasty, I found out (from a 2-pack of Pop Tarts) that two pastries=400 calories. Whole-grain waffles would be a lower-fat alternative. Anyone try that?

I do like the rice cakes, too.
