Are Pop-Tarts Ravioli?
In the picture you see a ravioli. And you see Pop-Tarts. Are they they same thing? To answer this question, we go to the source of all knowledge and silly arguments…The Twitters and the Reddit.
I woke up to a confused world…
I was just informed that PopTarts could technically be categorized as ravioli & now I don’t know what to think about anything

What? People are honestly asking this question? Uuuuuugh.
Before it was, “Is a hot dog a sandwhich” which, of course, gets a “Sure, if you wanna call it a sammich, go ahead.” After all, it’s bread and a thing with bread around it. At the least, a hot dog is in the same ballpark (heh heh)…bread and filling.
But a Pop-Tart and ravioli?
A Reddit user explains why they are the same…
Ingredients do not define a type of food such as ravioli. Nobody is arguing that an ice cream sandwich isn’t a sandwich, are they? Or that spaghetti with anything other than marinara sauce isn’t spaghetti, right? Right! So let’s take a look at a ravioli. A ravioli has a rather plain casing filled with delicious filling as well as usually a yummy sauce of some kind on top.
Now, let’s look at a pop tart. A pop tart consists of a rather plain casing containing some delicious filling, with a yummy topping on the top of it! The only difference is in the ingredients, and, as I’ve said before, ingredients don’t define a ravioli.
Hmmm….it’s hard to argue with that. But let me try,.
Merriam Webster define ravioli : “pasta in the form of little cases of dough containing a savory filling (as of meat or cheese)”
Huh. So it turns out ingredients DO define a type of food.
I can’t believe I’m even arguing this.
PS – If Pop-Tart makers are reading this…more filling, better frosting, more “oooey-gooey” when toasted. Thank you.
PSS – I HAVE to go eat ravioli now. DANGIT!
