The Aldi-Exclusive Pop-Tarts Flavor That's Leaving Fans Thirsty
On Thursday, June 23, Instagram user @candyhunting shared a summertime staple that's made its yearly return — though there's only one place you can find it this time around. The post — which states, "Pink Lemonade Pop-Tarts are back as a limited-edition Aldi exclusive!" — has amassed over 2,300 likes, but the seasonal treat has left many thirsting for something else.
Lemonade's acidity helps stimulate saliva production when you're dehydrated — and so it isn't a shock that Kellogg's dropped their limited-edition Frosted Pink Lemonade Pop-Tarts back in the summer of 2016. The colorful breakfast pastries made quite a splash, and are now back on the shelves for the seventh summer in a row and are being stocked exclusively at Aldi this year.
While some foodies were thrilled to hear about the return of the pastries, with one Instagrammer saying it was "the best news of the month," — some were left with a sour taste in their mouths, including one person who said they were "one of the few pop-tarts I threw away." Perhaps dunking them in a glass of lemonade à la Giada De Laurentiis can help make them a better bite.
