Many die-hard fans will recognize the Pop-Tart app from Season 1, Episode 13, “Concert Interruptus,” when Rory has Paris, Madeline, and Louise over to her house to study. Lorelai presents the girls with the Pop-Tart appetizer with an apple in the middle.
“There, Pop-Tart appetizer to tide you over until the pizza comes,” Lorelai (Lauren Graham) says.
But the apple also has a very symbolic meaning in Stars Hollow. In a later season, Lorelai is convinced she’s pregnant when she is suddenly craving apples.
