With the opening of POP TARTS WORLD NYC, I thought I would do something fun.    Pop Tarts World is a brick and mortar store where you can get all sorts of cool things to eat and other items.

You can have custom T-shirts made, sample over 30 different pop tart flavors….but what the PRESS completely freaked out about was…

POP TART SUSHI

Now I am not certain if they just read the headline or what, but it IS NOT A POP TART CONTAINING FISH—–OKAY!?!?!?!

It IS (and we know because we made them, and that is what you see above)…….actually a very CLEVER recipe. To make them yourself you will need:

FIRST:

2 or 3 different kinds of POP TARTS – we chose Strawberry and Chocolate.

SECOND:

FRUIT ROLL-UPS – this will simulate the NORI, or seaweed wrapping found around some types of sushi. This gives the “pop-tart sushi” a chewy kick.

THIRD:

Chop up one of each of your pop tarts. Minced or chunky, or whatever you like. As you can see by above, we chose chunky.

Un-roll the “roll-up” and then lay a generous portion of your pop-tarts on the end and roll until you get a nice, fat roll-up.

FOUR:

Chill in the fridge so the roll-up can “set” and make it easier to cut.

FIVE:

Slice these into sushi portions.

(sushi means “sour”, NOT “fish”, as most people believe)

SIX: Bust out the chopsticks and have fun!!!

These things are WEIRD, but really good, and I got a sugar rush like you wouldn’t believe after eating a few, so keep it lite!

They were a TON OF FUN to make though,and all the JFC crew scarfed them down pretty quick. If you have kids, they would LOVE these!!!!

ON A SIDE NOTE: I THINK THIS RECIPE WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO GET KIDS COMFORTABLE WITH THE IDEA OF “REAL” SUSHI.

IF THEY WOULD EAT THESE, CHANCES ARE YOU COULD TALK THEM INTO EATING “REAL” SUSHI, WHEN THEY ARE OLDER. AND SUSHI IS ACTUALLY PRETTY HEALTHY! SO MAYBE TRICK THEM WITH THE SWEET STUFF NOW AND SET THEM UP FOR HEALTHY EATS FOR LIFE LATER??? (and people say we never talk about the healthy stuff)
