People are Losing Their Minds Over This Pop-Tart and Cheese Sandwich

Folks on Twitter went crazy after a college student posted a picture of a sandwich made from toaster pastries and cheese. Sean Dowling (@seandowlingtv) has more.

DES MOINES - An Iowa State University student's Pop-Tart and cheese sandwich isn't sitting well with people on Twitter. 

Chris Jorgensen, a sophomore at Iowa State University, tweeted a pair of photos Nov. 9 of the breakfast-and-dairy product combination. The caption read: "You ain’t from Iowa if you never had one of these."  The tweet drew hundreds of retweets, quote tweets and comments.

Jorgensen told the Des Moines Registeron Monday he's come across similar "gross foods" posts in the past on his own social media timelines. So on a night when he opened his cupboards and realized he didn't have much to eat, Jorgensen wanted to experiment.

"I thought: 'What could be the grossest thing I could put between two Pop-Tarts?' " Jorgensen said. "So I went to the fridge and got a cheese slice."

But the internet had a terrible taste in its mouth and couldn't have disagreed any further than it did. These are some of the best reactions:

 

Jorgensen wasn't originally planning to take a bite, but he said his roommates told him he needed to if he was going to tweet about it.

"There wasn't much cheese in the bite that I got," he said, adding that the Strawberry-flavored Pop-Tart isn't his favorite.

Other than the common "disgusting" comments, he said people have complimented the quality of the photos as well as the plate the Pop-Tart sandwich is on.

"Apparently everyone's grandma has those plates," Jorgensen said.

But Jorgensen never thought the tweet would get as much attention as it has.

"I think I've done some damage to the state of Iowa," he said, laughing.
