Or possibly both. :lol:

But, he's right. Things just aren't the same anymore.

Yeah, that's a shame. That movie with Anthony Perkins was great (and that's what got him the role in Psycho).

As it happens, a bit before you posted this, I did a survey of DollarTree foods. It's truly a scary idea to eat things that are a fraction of the Big Chain supermarket prices --and some were indeed pretty cheaply made-- but you might try Toast'ems Pop-ups. Both Toastems Pop-ups and "Kelloggs" Pop Tarts began in 1964, so it's hard to say which came first. but aPop Tarts won the Marketing War [e.g. almost everyone in the US considers Hydrox (1908) a cheap knock-off of Oreos (1912), when it's really the other way around]

Anyway, when I first tried PopTarts (around the age you would have), they were already a little short on filling, and steadily got worse. Toast'ems Pop-Up are about like 1960s PopTarts (way better than 70s/80's Pop Tarts). You can still sometimes find them in other chains (but why pay more than a buck?). They have more filling than today's Pop Tarts, with some actual fruit, not just flavored jelly. They're actually worth the pantry space.

I like Hydrox a lot better than Oreos, but they haven't been available around here in decades.

Wow, they look good. They have brown sugar cinnamon, but the Dollar Tree site only lists strawberry. Walmart seems to have cinnamon (as does Amazon, but very expensively).
