Hi Emily

Okay, playing Devil's advocate here...

The fact that the toaster instructions were so precise seems to
indicate that perhaps the company has received more than a few
complaints that folks managed to get it wrong. Now it's anyone's guess
as to whether the instructions are worthwhile, as the same folks that
get it wrong probably also aren't reading the info, eh?

I compare this to those stupid "common sense" items. Like the little
silica gel packets with the large "DO NOT EAT" on them. Who in their
right mind would open packaging and say: Looky here! A treat! Or the
information about not using the blow dryer in the shower. Sheesh...

On the microwave bit, what if a toaster isn't available? I'm sitting
here in a room at a Holiday inn. I have no pop-tarts, but I DO have a
microwave and a fridge. But no toaster. Maybe having a guide as to how
long to reasonably microwave the product would be handy.

Cheers and happy Thursday all... Rick :)
