Forget store-bought varieties--new foodie Pop-Tarts taste nothing like what you'd find in the cereal aisle. These little pastry pockets of sugar, fruit--and sometimes meat--are fresh and often even healthy. Here are six around Los Angeles that everyone needs to try.

C + M at LACMA
The craft coffeehouse at LACMA serves pastries as creative as the art: lavender-sprinkled lemon and bacon with dates are among the offerings. Location.
