In news from the “I can’t believe a company hasn’t done this already” file, it seems that a Carl’s Jr restaurant in Newport Beach, California is conducting a test run for the newest hybrid food item – a Strawberry Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich. That noise in the distance? That’s a billion dentists purchasing yachts filled with diamonds.
The above photo popped up on Instagram before it was picked up by Foodbeast, which has asked for anyone who tries one of these glorious monstrosities to let them know how it is. Me? I’m a more hands-on guy, so if you’re in Newport Beach and these ice cream sandwiches really do exist, go ahead and throw one in an envelope and mail it to me ASAP.
Meanwhile, I guarantee that a guy is going to wake up around noon, see this and say, “Hey bro, I’ve been making Pop-Tart sandwiches for years!” And I won’t feel bad for that guy, because ideas like this are a dime a dozen these days, which is why I need Taco Bell to poop or get off the pot with my proposal for a taco shell made of Totino’s Pizza Rolls.
As for the Pop-Tart sandwich ad, though, I trust Carl’s Jr. to do the right thing.
