Aa microwaveable meal of cheese and meat wrapped up in a flaky crust that was first introduced in 1983. Hot pockets became famous for their "crisping sleve" which allowed the pocket crust to become crispy in the microwave, and for their repetitive advertising jingle consisting of just the words "Hot Pocket".
Interest in Hot Pockets had a revival of sorts with a comedy routine where Jim Gaffigan talks about his love-hate relationship with this less-than-healthy food product.
What was the idea behind Hot Pockets? Was there a marketing meeting somewhere, "Hey I got an idea: How about we take a Pop-Tart and fill it with really nasty meat? You could cook it in a sleeve thing, dunk it in a toilet."
