The New Mean Girls Toaster Strudel

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Pillsbury teamed up with Paramount Pictures for a collaboration that is Limited-Edition Mean Girls Toaster Strudel with pink icing in both Strawberry and Cream Cheese & Strawberry flavors! It definitely fetch, if we do say so ourselves. The best part is the pastries are available in stores now- yes, way ahead of the fateful day of October 3! Actress Lacey Chabert shared the exciting news on Instagram. “On Wednesdays, we make everything pink! I DO think my father, the inventor of Toaster Strudel, would be pleased to hear about . . . @MeanGirls inspired TOASTER STRUDEL!” she wrote. It makes sense, honestly. As you remember from the movie, Gretchen Wieners dad is the inventor of the Toaster Strudel. So it’s only right that she gets her own limited-edition Toaster Strudel, right? Right!


In addition to this exciting new product, Pillsbury has also announced “The Most Fetch” Toaster Strudel Icing Sweepstakes where three winners will receive one year’s worth of Pillsbury Toaster Strudel and Mean Girls merchandise, as well as a personalized video message from Lacey herself. All you have to do is take a photo of your pastry’s pink icing design and post on Instagram or Twitter with #FetchSweepstakes and @ToasterStrudel included in the caption from now through September 20. Make sure to pick up a box or two on your next grocery store run! We’re so happy Gretchen finally made “fetch” happen!

Toaster Strudel has been in our lives for years. From rushed mornings trying to sneak in a quick breakfast before running out to catch the bus to school to Sunday mornings relaxing in front of Cartoon Network eating some Toaster Strudel, these tasty desserts were it. To be honest, the Cinnamon Roll Toaster Strudel was our favorite. Or maybe it was the Chocolate Toaster Strudel. Or the Glazed Donut Toaster Strudel? Seriously, so many good flavors!
