Image via Pop-Tarts
Joining the ranks of Coca-Cola’s campaign that accidentally wished “death” on drinkers in New Zealand, Pop-Tarts has rolled out an image that isn’t quite family-friendly in countries outside of the US.
Social media users from the UK have had a field day poking fun at a half-baked social media post published by the Pop-Tarts US Twitter account.
“I like my tarts where I like my money,” Pop-Tarts writes along with a photo of a waist pouch fronted by its logo. “Right in my fanny.”
If the joke has flown over your head, that’s probably because it’s district-specific. In the UK, and perhaps colonies of the country, “fanny” is slang for vagina.
“I don’t know what the f*** you think we’re doing over here, but we’re definitely not inserting Pop-Tarts in our vaginas,” says Twitter user ‘stillicides’.
“Well, I gave it a go but the corners were a bit scratchy, to be honest,” jokes user Helen Honeybun.
It’s strange how words can be interpreted so differently in places that speak the same language. Have a laugh at some comments from confused social media users below.

All of my British friends wondering why they’re talking about shoving Pop-Tarts up their vaginas right now https://t.co/0RdethpgWw
