Pop-Tarts and Jolly Ranchers Made a Food Baby That Will Rot Your Teeth

These treats will make your dentist scream and run away

Pop-Tarts — the original dessert masquerading as breakfast — will soon be available in three ultra sour Jolly Rancher flavors. It’s like when the Jetsons met the Flintstones, or when Lisa Kudrow appeared as both Phoebe and the waitress from Mad About You on an episode of Friends — worlds colliding in weird and somewhat unsettling new ways.

Get your greedy little fingers ready. @jollyrancher Pop-Tarts are here!

These cherry, green apple, and watermelon-flavored treats will be available this summer for a limited time only — but first you must pry them from the disembodied hands reaching out from the bowl, if you dare.

The launch of this product is further proof that food companies are hot on both mash-ups of popular, well-established brands (see: here, here, and here), and using limited time-only releases to generate viral buzz (see: here, here, and here).
