Pop-Tarts are VERY sweet.  I like the strawberry ones myself.  Also the
brown sugar and cinnamon ones (spicy and sweet).  They are also pretty hard
unless you toast them...the pastry part is almost a soft cracker instead of
pastry.  I would think you could make them, though I'd be worried about
committing a homemade one to a regular toaster.  I use a toaster oven (so
they lie flat) and I bet that would work.
