I haven't been impressed with the newest Pop Tart flavors, like the Jolly Ranchers ones, because I don't like Jolly Ranchers or sour food for that matter. Ditto for the Dunkin' Donuts Chocolate Mocha and Vanilla Latte ones(I don't like coffee). I would've turned the Orange Crush or Root Beer ones into a meatloaf but then I'd have to use more Pop Tarts because you can't have a meatloaf with either of those flavors without the actual drink in it!
But there's something about a Pop Tart with blue filling that is just begging to be put into a meatloaf- I'm talking about the Blue Raspberry Pop Tart, people! Kellogg's claims it's sweet and sour but I didn't taste the latter in this Pop Tart. Maybe I would've had they not hit its expiration date a month ago(but hey- they were unopened, so they didn't go stale).
It's been a long while since I put Pop Tarts into a meatloaf- I just branched out into other recipes over the past two years, but the blue filling is like a siren call to me to use it in a weird recipe that I just cannot ignore.
If blue raspberries actually existed in nature, I probably would've used them in this meatloaf. I mean, people post colorful food on Instagram, like anything with the word "unicorn" in it- whatever that means since they technically don't exist in real life.
My dad said the meatloaf tasted sweet, like a "candy cake". First of all, I've never heard of that term in my life but it sure sounds good!
