A breakfast staple takes center stage in a Netflix hit

While watching the Netflix original film 'Bird Box' I was excited that a very critical point in the movie, I spotted a hometown treat! If you are not familiar with the plot of this thriller, Netflixs describes it as...

Five years after an ominous unseen presence drives most of society to suicide, a survivor and her two children make a desperate bid to reach safety.


And here is how the breakfast treat for those on the go, Pop Tarts appears in the movie (promise no spoiler alert needed). Sandra Bullocks charter discovers a box of Strawberry Pop Tarts in an abandoned home, acknowledging that they may be stale she breaks them into pieces and explains to her kids that "that's what strawberries taste like".

After that scene I started to wonder, how long can Pop Tarts Last for and according to eatbydate.com it is pretty impressive!

Pop tarts, if unopened and stored properly, can last 6-12 months beyond their "best by" date

I will be stocking up on this delicious hometown treat that even Netflixs thinks is yumy!
