Millville Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Toaster Tarts Review

This is also post #2 for today. This post includes photos from yesterday along with my review of Millville's Frosted Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Toaster Tarts.

This photo of my breakfast yesterday was taken with my phone's camera, not so great. Luckily, I got my camera back before lunch. For breakfast, I had a great big cup of half caf. coffee w/  a little raw sugar & creamer. I also had a brown sugar & cinnamon toaster tart. I don't normally eat these, but Lucas bought them and having not had one in forever, I decided to have one. Even when I did eat them, I usually get ones without frosting, which I prefer. Knowing that it would probably be too sweet for me, I toned it down by spreading it with a layer of light cream cheese. I had placed the tart in the toaster over to warm it a little before adding the cream cheese. I now know, it's easier to spread the cream cheese on the unfrosted side and even easier after it's cooled slightly.

These are from Aldi, Millville's version of PopTarts. I don't think they are quite as cinnamon-y as I would like and as I said I do prefer no icing, but they are what they are, so I am giving them 4 stars. I suppose I would have to taste a Poptart and one of these side by side to know the difference.

This is lunch, just a single piece of leftover veggie pizza, I'd nearly forgotten about.

I also had a little of the Muddy Trail mix. The chocolate covered cookie dough bites are the best part. They had me looking for recipes the other day.

For dinner we made soup, no recipe, just a big pot of goodness thrown together. It's mostly potato soup, made with small red potatoes, partially peeled and diced, corn, chopped onion, water, milk, light cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, cilantro, & salt. We also had onion rings on the side.

The soup was just an experiment. It turned out good, but not exactly what we were going for. We used quite a bit of the pepper jack and still had to add some flour to thicken it up a little. You could hardly taste the heat from the cheese. It was creamy and cheesy though and I ate 2 bowls with my onion rings.

Now that I've finished this post, I'm planning to take a nap. I'm still not feeling great. I don't think I got enough sleep. I should make that my New Years Resolution, to get more sleep. Do you have one in mind or do you even bother with one?  I don't normally make one, but maybe I should. Happy Thursday!!!


  1. maybe you should have added some jalapenos, better yet if you put them in a pan and roast them then dice them and put them in that would be good too.

  2. Yeah, that sounds good, we also thought we may try some Monterey Jack Queso Dip instead of the pepper jack cheese so that it blends better.
