NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 19: Boxes of Pop-Tarts sit for sale at the Metropolitan Citymarket on February 19, 2014 in the East Village neighborhood of New York City. Kellogg, maker of Pop-Tarts, has announced that it will only buy palm oil - a minor ingredient in Pop-Tarts - from companies that don't destroy rainforests where palm trees are grown.

Iowa isn’t necessarily known for any signature food.  A sophomore at Iowa State University named Chris Jorgensen just tried to change that…

He made himself a grilled cheese sandwich last week, but instead of bread, he put the slice of American cheese between two POP-TARTS.  And he tweeted, quote, “You ain’t from Iowa if you never had one of these.”

Now . . . lots of other people from Iowa have chimed in and said they’ve never heard of this sandwich before.  But Chris’s tweet is going viral . . . so maybe one day, we’ll look back at this moment as when Iowa’s signature dish was created.
