Prepare to have your mind blown: These are a swap for Pop-Tarts with 1g sugar or less! Each pastry is also gluten free with 10 grams of protein. And with flavors like Summer Strawberry, Sticky Cinnamon, and Hot Chocolate, we suspect our relationship with this whole line will be wayyyy more than a mere fling. Find them at limited Target locations or order online from Amazon or the Flings website. A little pricey but pretty darn special!
