If a Pop-Tart and a Toaster Strudel had a baby and sent it to finishing school, it would probably taste a lot like Starbucks’ newest bakery creation.

According to Brand Eating, Starbucks approached Ritchie in 2014, when she was selling her pastries from her front stoop. The coffeehouse chain tested the Megpies in New York City before distributing them to roughly 7,500 locations in the U.S.

The treats cost $3.95 each and come in two flavors — Cinnamon + Brown Sugar and Strawberry.
