While people can debate their favorite filling flavor, most people agree that the Pillsbury Toaster Strudel is always better with one ingredient, more icing. MEGA Icing is back and it is time to indulge in that sugary goodness.

Mary Poppins might have sung about a spoonful of sugar, but some people want more than just a little sprinkle of sweetness. When it comes to toaster pastries, the sugar icing on top is a requirement. Who hasn’t broken away the bare edges just to get to the center that has the most icing goodness.

In 2015, MEGA Icing hit store shelves. Instead of that little packet where every last drop was squeezed from the plastic packet, the bigger version was almost double the size. From an extra layer of icing, to giving each bite its own drop, or smothering the entire pastry with sugary goodness, every possibility was covered.

To the delight of many people, the Pillsbury Toaster Strudel MEGA Icing is back. Whether people choose to draw a smiley face, make a pattern, or just shovel all that icing in their toaster hole, there is plenty to go around.

While this larger packet makes the food sweeter, it is more than just icing. It invites people to have fun with their food. Young and old need time to just play. It might not be a huge lifechanging moment, but it can be a well-needed break to make a rainbow on that pastry or lick icing off your fingers. Life is too short to stay tucked into a tight box.

Although the MEGA Icing will be available for just a limited time, many people can hope that it will return again. Maybe for the next version, that icing can come in another flavor.

The Pillsbury Toaster Strudel MEGA Icing is available in Strawberry and Strawberry Cream Cheese. Check with retailers for availability and pricing.
