Hey, Kansas.

We have a question for you.

We know you eat your chili with your cinnamon rolls, but what are you eating with your Pop-Tarts?

If it is anything like what the people of Iowa, Oklahoma, Illinois and Alaska are eating their Pop-Tarts with, Kansas should probably be a little-bit ashamed.

Thanks to the seemingly not-so-tasty Pop-Tarts pairings – American cheese in Iowa, ranch dressing in Oklahoma, mustard in Illinois and fresh salmon in Alaska – it should come to no surprise that these combinations are not the next chocolate and peanut butter.

In fact, it might even be disrespectful, if you ask the Pop-Tarts company. Or maybe even cringe worthy.

Thanks for thinking outside the foil.

This is just disrespectful https://t.co/jmdXANjILq

Thanks for the support. Due to the severity of the crime, we need all the help we can get. https://t.co/NdZ6RhY0cy

Where is the respect these days https://t.co/vdJkOVZR49

It is obvious in Pop-Tarts’ responses – and all who are replying – that these combinations were simply never meant to be.

But a Pop-Tarts sandwich, with Pop-Tarts as the bread and the filling? That might do, according to Pop-Tarts.

If your combination is anything less than Pop-Tarts with Pop-Tarts, you might want to keep it to yourself, Kansas. Otherwise, the state – and state law enforcement – might disown you.

Don't ever put this on us! This abomination is NOT an Iowa thing, it's a lack of taste buds thing! Disgusting

I speak for all Oklahomans when I say we do not support this in any way shape or fashion. We turn Christy over to the Lone Star State of Texas

Maybe, just maybe, follow Texas’ lead and stick to a Kansas-shaped Pop-Tarts.

So tell me, Kansas – what do you eat with your Pop-Tarts? You can tell me, even if it is a little weird.
