I would say no, because by definition filling has to be inside a noodle to be ravioli. And I really don't think poptarts filling inside of a noodle would be very good.

As a ravioli fan, I’m going to say no because ravioli is a pasta and pop tarts are a breakfast/dessert/snack thing and the base is more of a bread rather than a pasta.
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

Ooof it's a no from me too.

Also the only valid poptart option is the cinnamon/brown sugar one, the rest are YIKES ™ in my opinion.


Also for those who put yes, explain yourselves please. XD

I had a visceral reaction to both the question and the photo, but what really disturbs me is how you spell poptarts with a space.

No.

Reason First:
Poptarts is one word, not two.

Reason Second:
If by "Dixie" you mean "Southern," then definitely no-- partially because Poptarts are more-or-less a common Southern "any time of the day food" whereas pasta (e.g. RAVIOLI) is more of a "heyyy, we have money left over fr'm when we sold all-uh that there home made deer jerky, let's go pretend to be th' rich folks and get som nice, fancy foodstuff!"

Reason THird:
...no, dude. Just no.

I say no because pop-tarts are donuts, not ravioli.

@Magebird I'm gonna have to fite you here ;) pop-tarts or pop tarts is acceptable, but it is most assuredly not a single word lol

The package seems to spell it "pop•tarts" so I guess it's up to interpretation of whether a dot is closer to a grammatical hyphen, space, or firework. In hindsight I think the hyphen may be the best course of action.

But also consider:
Pop;tarts ? A semi-colon has a dot right in it!

Or to be inclusive of those who prefer to say soda rather than pop -> soda•tarts.




Also I'm much more comfortable with pop•tarts being labled donuts, pizza pockets, or squashed pies than ravioli!

This was an anonymous submission btw folks. I just chose one of the many controversial options from my inbox.

Also for the people who evidently don't know: My Squills culinary column is called Dixie Kitchen. I tag the beginning of all of my food polls with the title of my columns so that I can find them later on. Next week I'll be featuring some even crazier stuff if y'all are up in arms about this.
