A 'Pop-Tart' is the Latest Addition to Starbuck's Menu

The Starbucks menu keeps getting better, from the new Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato to the so-called "rainbow drinks" -- but their latest addition is a bakery item sure to bring back memories of popping a frozen pastry in the toaster before running to catch the school bus.

The Megpies -- which is Starbucks for "fancy pop tart" -- will come in two flavors: Strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon.

Maybe someday they'll be as creative as Pop-Tarts and go wild with some maple bacon or pink lemonade flavors.

For now, however, they're currently only available in NYC locations, although Starbucks plans to roll them out nationwide.

The pastry hails from a bakery in Brooklyn, which started gaining in popularity when the Megpies began selling like hotcakes in local coffee shops.

Their price tag matches Starbucks recent price hike: One will cost $3.95.

You could probably buy a box of actual Pop-Tarts for about that much, but can you really put a price on nostalgia?
