It's been 27 years since the last peanut butter Pop-Tarts were available, but Kellogg announced Tuesday it would bring back the flavor in two new versions of its popular breakfast treat.
Marketed as "Gone Nutty!", Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts and Frosted Chocolate Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts feature fillings made with real peanut butter.
"Peanut butter has long been the most requested flavor by our fans,"
said Dick Podiak, director of marketing for Pop-Tarts, said in a statement. "We think everyone will agree it was worth the wait once they taste these delicious new varieties."

To promote the new peanut butter flavors, a "toasting team" has hit the road in a toaster-shaped truck to introduce the product to fans nationwide. Customers are encouraged to voice their opinions on the peanut butter Pop-Tarts via Twitter (#CrazyGoodPB).
Pop-Tarts discontinued their last peanut butter flavor, the Peanut Butter & Jelly Pop-Tart, back in 1986.
Kellogg is also rolling out more nutritious cereal options to draw in more adult customers. The Battle Creek, Mich.-based company said it's introducing Raisin Bran with omega-3 and a multigrain version of Special K later this month.

The company is also trying to find innovative breakfast-on-the-go options. This year, a "Breakfast To Go" dairy drink will be available as a sort of liquid cereal.
General Mills Inc., which also makes cereals including Cheerios and Lucky Charms, is introducing a similar product called "BFast" that promises the nutrition of a bowl of cereal and milk.
