Can you imagine if your favorite candy was turned into a breakfast ? Cherry, watermelon, and green apple are the three flavors that are bringing the sweet and the sour experience to your breakfast this summer.

Kellogg announced on May 15 that boxes of the limited-edition Jolly Rancher flavored Pop-Tarts will arrive in grocery stores later this month, according to TODAY food spokeswoman, just in time for the summer.

Each neon-dyed dough rectangle is expected to taste like a Jolly Rancher straight from the candy wrapper, replacing the original Pop Tart flavors that are sweet and actually have the flavor of the real fruit. Nobody can miss these boxes when walking down the breakfast aisle because they frosted in boxes with bright bold colors with a neon squiggle makes it stand out.

Jolly Rancher cherry Pop Tarts are redder than red, and they aren’t simple unlike the original cherry pop tarts. The filling imitates the candy perfectly, with a sharp tang, but it works better as a prank on someone who loves the original.

Green apple is as green as the Grinch; it doesn’t even taste like itself, and out of the trio it has the most unique flavor. Regular apple Pop Tarts bring to mind a warm apple pie, but Jolly Rancher brings horror. It literally sucks.

Watermelon turns in a whole different direction when it comes to taste. The original watermelon flavored pop tart is sweet and lovely. The Jolly Rancher flavor is just disgusting, but unlike a real watermelon that is seedless and can be stored in your cabinet. The tang is present, but not in the mouth-shrinking levels found in cherry.

But this isn’t the first time the company has had a collab. The company currently has Dunkin Donuts varieties, A&W Root Beer and Crush soda mash-ups Pop Tarts on shelves.
