Twitter user suggests Ranch Pop-Tarts, Twitter goes bonkers

Patrick Varine
A Twitter user suggested Ranch Pop-Tarts earlier this week.

As Little Debbie’s Twitter feed put it, “There are times when people need to be saved from themselves.”

That time was earlier this week, when a Twitter user’s suggestion that Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing and Pop-Tarts team up gained far too much traction on the social-media platform.

Far be it from the folks at Hidden Valley to challenge the notion that you can put ranch on anything.

Reaction was swift and merciless from across the Twitterverse.

This was our personal reaction.

And then, after we thought about it for a minute … No, we still felt the same way.

And while there was the occasional supporter…

Many Twitter users wisely chose to immediately try and wipe the thought from their minds.

Luckily for all of us — and possibly for mankind in general — Pop-Tarts and their parent company Kellogg had their wits about them, tweeting “lol no” back at the Hidden Valley folks.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
