We had the opportunity to go on an unexpected road trip this weekend. We piled into the van and hit the road. It’s the same thing every time. We make it almost ten minutes before the boy asks for a snack. Early morning road trips always include Pop-Tarts. Well, to be honest, they are the generic toaster pastries. This is not a normal breakfast option for us but it makes road trips special. The whole family crinkles their wrappers while I sip my giant thermos full of coffee. With toaster pastry crumbs all over his face, my son asked, “Why does it always have to be brown sugar? Can we have a different flavor next time?” My wife is the only person in the world who can eat a Pop-Tart without losing a single crumb. She simply said, “No, brown sugar is the best.” As sure as the sun rises in the east, road trips will start with brown sugar toaster pastries.
