Iowa State Student Goes Viral For Tweeting About His Disgusting Snack
When you're a broke college student, gourmet food options can be a bit hard to come by, but this Iowa State student's snack is seriously gross.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, Chris Jorgensen decided to tweet his less than savory meal with the caption "You ain't from Iowa if you never had one of these." The picture shows a piece of American cheese between two generic pop-tarts. Um, yeah. He just did that.
I have a lot of opinions about Chris' snack of choice, but mostly I'll say that no, I am not from Iowa originally, but I don't think I've met one single person who finds this combo to be delicious. If you do, I think I feel sorry for you.
Apparently, Chris is somewhat in on the joke though. He told the World-Herald that he knows pop tarts and cheese are not really an Iowa staple, but he got the idea for making the snack after reading tweets about weird food pairings and thought it would be funny to tweet one that's totally over the top.
So far, Chris' photo has gotten over a thousand retweets and 1,500 comments, most of which are not very positive. However, after Chris tweeted Hyvee thanking them for the "cheap cheese and toaster pastries," the grocery store chain responded and told him to enjoy, with absolutely no twinge of irony. Gotta love it.
