Are Poptarts dairy-free?
Oh my goodness,
why am I just now writing this blog post?
We have been eating Poptarts for over a decade!
Not all flavors are safe for our milk allergy.
So let me show you the ones my kids have been eating for 12 years.
And hopefully these may work for you, too.
We also have nut allergies.
And be sure to scroll all the way down for a dye-free option we recently found, too!
While I know Poptarts aren’t the most nutritious breakfast option ever known to man,
it’s definitely a fun treat for the kids…
and a convenient option for vacation, caregivers, etc.
Not to mention, imagine how normal you will feel! 😉
So let’s get to some dairy-free Poptart flavors and labels, shall we?
As always, read labels for yourself as ingredients can change.
Starting with fruit flavors…
My youngest likes frosted Strawberry best.
Unfrosted Strawberry should work, too.
I wish I had won the no-frosting battle years ago.
It’s a lost cause.

My husband loves cherry Poptarts best.

Maybe blueberry would be my favorite Poptart flavor.
But I don’t eat them.
I’d rather eat real frozen blueberries.
Here is blueberry flavor.

This bulk box of fruit flavors is pretty handy.
And often a good value, too.
I get this box on Walmart Pick-Up.
Now this is the favorite of my food allergy kiddo.
Brown Sugar Poptarts
Sometimes they can be found dual packaged with strawberry.
Then both kids are happy.

Now here’s the exciting part.
The other day I was in a discount bread store with my kids,
and one of the boys pointed out this different looking Poptart box.
What do you know…
That kind of seems like an oxymoron, but sure!
When I posted this new fin in our membership group,
one of our dye-free mamas pointed out that these contain no artificial coloring.
And she was so excited to hunt these down for her dye-free kiddos.
See the ingredients below.
It’s still a long list…
But again, sometimes food allergy families just want a normal treat.
I found these at Walmart. 🙂

SOME LIKE IT HOT, SOME LIKE IT COLD
Now here’s the real question, allergy friend.
Do you eat Poptarts hot or cold?
I grew up eating them toasted, always.
But when my kids were toddlers, I somehow skipped that step.
Probably because we mostly ate these on the road.
So now my boys think Poptarts are supposed to be eaten cold.
PREFER HOMEMADE POPTARTS?
If you aren’t keen on long ingredient lists…
or are craving a certain flavor you don’t see here…
you may love this dairy-free poptart recipe at Allergy Free Mouse!
Now tell us in the comments if you know of other dairy-free Poptart flavors.
We would love to hear.
PS: If you serve these with some bacon and fruit, you’ll feel less guilty.
You’re welcome. xo
