I think the answer is yes.
My youngest boy is addicted to Pop-Tarts. So much so that I have to put them on the high shelf so he doesn't keep "helping himself" to more of them when I am not looking.
Well with the great sale at Target this week, I was doomed. I have taken a picture of my purchases, and I will post it as soon as my regular computer is working. (I am using the kids computers in the mean time) I ended up with 44 boxes of Pop-Tarts! Yes, you saw right 44 boxes, of the 12 count boxes. That comes to 528 individual Pop-Tarts! The best part is I only paid $35 and some change for them all.
I have them hidden as best I can in my walk in pantry right now, so little hands can't get them. But I am afraid it is only a matter of time before he finds them. (Imagine a cartoon light burst around them as his eyeballs are popping three feet out of his head) At that point I will have to find a higher up hiding place for them. I am hoping that they should last right through the New Year. We are still working on 6 more boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats too.
I will post the picture as soon as my computer is working.
How many Pop-Tarts did y'all end up with?
Not sure about the Pop-Tart deal at Target? Well, when you buy 4 boxes of 12 count Pop-Tarts for 4/$9 you get a $5 Target gift card. You can also use the Target $.50 coupon for Pop-Tarts here. Be sure to print as many coupons as Pop-Tarts you plan to buy. So if you do a few transactions in a row, using the gift cards you got in the previous transaction, they end up costing $2/4 boxes. Plus there were manufacture coupons in the paper a few weeks ago that you can stack with the Target coupons.
So that is why I am stocking up on them. I just hope I can keep him from finding them as long as possible.
