Why are pop tarts still a breakfast food even if they're unhealthy with a ton of sugar?

    Because there's nothing wrong with having a sweet treat breakfast every once in a while.

    For the same reason cereals are. Because of marketing and sales. Do you think anyone would buy them if they were advertised as "really high in sugar and calories, almost no nutrition whatsoever and they will shorten your life eventually or give you some awful disease like diabetes?"  Kinda doubtful. And who are they marketed to: CHILDREN. Because they don't research their food choices.

    It's all in the marketing that people believe.

    Because, damn it, they're delicious.  And you're wrong...they're not only for breakfast.  Pop Tarts are good any time...especially the Brown Sugar Cinnamon flavor.  Take it from Milton the Toaster.

    Ask any 6 year old why they like it.

    Because people BUY them to eat at breakfast.  It is up to the individual, not the government, to make wise food choices.  

    And corporations will sell anything that makes money and is not illegal, even if it harms people ... look at cigarettes, vaping products, alcohol, sugar .... it's all about $$$$

    Because they are convenient and they shut kids up.

    Why do you lie?  Pop Tarts are not unhealthy, and only contain 15 grams of sugar, less than two cups of hot black tea with sugar and milk.

    Not to mention, who are a God that can tell others what they must do?

    Because they taste good.
