A toast to Pop-Tarts, the childhood treat I couldn’t resist

There’s a scene in the campy 1980s flick “Earth Girls Are Easy” in which Geena Davis picks through her fridge to find something to eat for a trio of hungry, hirsute, primary-colored aliens who just parked their spaceship in her backyard pool.
