"Чего" is Russian for "what the...?" It was also my first thought when I was at Fry's today and saw the following product:

When I was in Pop-Tart's target market, the only flavors available were marginally breakfast-y ones like strawberry, apple, and blueberry. All of them were unfrosted. They were also forbidden inside our home. I had to beg my friends to share.

Now I see flavors like Mint Chocolate Chip, Hot Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (!), and Chocolate Chip Cookie.

I guess they're not even trying anymore. Even the fruit-flavored Pop-Tarts were a stretch; now they've given up entirely and are just selling them for what they are: sugary confections entirely unfit for breakfast.

But they were on a good sale, so I bought a box. I couldn't see a flavor like that and not buy it, if for nothing other than novelty value. I'll let you know how they taste.

Bridget, have you ever tried Pillsbury's Toaster Struedel? It's SO good. And I actually feel like I get breakfast. Mixed berry is probably my favorite.
