Two years ago, I wrote about how I found Kellogg’s Pop Tarts at Checkers. Since then, I haven’t really seen them at the food-chain. However, several Spar stores have started stocking them, and better flavours to boot!
Unlike Checkers, Spar sells their range of Pop Tarts in loose packs (two tarts a pack) for around R23 and a box of eight tarts for well over R100. While there are some unique flavours in the boxed-only options, the single packs give you a wider variety. So far, I’ve seen Chocolate Chip, Cherry, Blueberry, S’mores, and Hot Fudge Sundae. If it were up to me, Spar would only stock the chocolate-based flavours as I find the fruit Jams to be gross (though, many people do like them).
Not just Pop Tarts
This isn’t he first time that the Spar chain of stores has sold treats from outside of South Africa. My local branch, located in Kenilworth, Cape Town, sells Dr. Pepper and A&W drinks, varieties of M&Ms, as well as Cadburys treats generally not found around here. They’re not cheap by any means, but they’re all worth a try.
I’m still not sure who the supplier is for these sickly-sweet treats, but I hope they continue to import the range.
