ESPN’s Darren Rovell sent out several tweets Monday documenting how five universities — Michigan, Georgia, Arkansas, Florida and North Carolina — have partnered with Kellogg’s on limited edition, themed Pop Tarts specific to each school.
The college-themed breakfast treats won’t hit shelves until next month, according to Rovell. So for now we’ll have to gorge ourselves on the next best thing: Twitter users making fun of the whole concept.
Some of the gems are included below.

We’re most surprised that Arkansas put itself out there for this campaign after their rocky offseason. Our suggested zinger: “Do not consume Razorbacks pop tarts while operating a motorcycle.” Or “Can be purchased with food stamps by financially troubled football coaches.”
