in the picture you see a ravioli. And you see Pop-Tarts. Are they they same thing? To answer this question, we go to the source of all knowledge and silly arguments...The Twitters and the Reddit. 

Before it was, "Is a hot dog a sandwhich" which, of course, gets a "Sure, if you wanna call it a sammich, go ahead." After all, it's bread and a thing with bread around it. At the least, a hot dog is in the same ballpark (heh heh)...bread and filling.

But a Pop-Tart and ravioli?

A Reddit user explains why they are the same...

Ingredients do not define a type of food such as ravioli. Nobody is arguing that an ice cream sandwich isn't a sandwich, are they? Or that spaghetti with anything other than marinara sauce isn't spaghetti, right? Right! So let's take a look at a ravioli. A ravioli has a rather plain casing filled with delicious filling as well as usually a yummy sauce of some kind on top.

Now, let's look at a pop tart. A pop tart consists of a rather plain casing containing some delicious filling, with a yummy topping on the top of it! The only difference is in the ingredients, and, as I've said before, ingredients don't define a ravioli.'s hard to argue with that. But let me try,.


Merriam Webster define ravioli :  "pasta in the form of little cases of dough containing a savory filling (as of meat or cheese)"

Huh. So it turns out ingredients DO define a type of food.

I can't believe I'm even arguing this.

PS - If Pop-Tart makers are reading this...more filling, better frosting, more "oooey-gooey" when toasted. Thank you.

PSS - I HAVE to go eat ravioli now. DANGIT!
