Pop-Tarts are hurricane food!

All I can say is "Ewww". This is one of the many American foods that puzzle me. I have never been able to understand why anyone would want to eat something so sugary and filled with fake food ingredients. However, I am definitely in the minority as:
The list of 80 items that Rouses Markets stocks its stores with every time a hurricane threatens includes a surprising product: Pop-Tarts.

"It's all ready," said President Donald Rouse. "We just have to push a button."

And so, in addition to offloading gallons of bottled water and worrying about whether they'll be able to get products into New Orleans if contraflow is put in place, Rouses is making sure its stores are well-stocked with the toaster pastries.That's because demand for the pastries surges when hurricanes approach, according to some retailers.
