31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Pie Toaster Strudel

(Disclaimer: I actually attempted to do this back in 2014 but feel off because of personal shit at the time. In light of that I am going to go back and use the entries from that time in this latest attempt. If you see this at the top it's an indicator that its a repost from 2014 and there will mostly likely be edits from the original mostly for context timing. On with the show.)

First marketed as a competitor to the the quick breakfast staple Pop Tarts, Toaster Strudels have come along way. Instead of being wrapped in foil and sitting on a shelf for several months, Pillsbury decided to go with a frozen pastry with frosting to go on top. I'm not sure when they threw their chef's hat into the seasonal battlefield but like many other treats we now have a pumpkin pie flavor of the sweet pastries to enjoy in the morning.

They are actually quite tasty. The pastry is what you would expect. However the filling is really close to the border of being too sweet. As a result you may or may not want to use the frosting packet that comes with each strudel.

I've eaten one box of these so far and they are okay. Unfortunately I don't eat Toaster Strudels very often so it's likely I won't get anymore before they disappear from the shelves.

Take it easy folks!
