Hi Waldo! The “Microwave on high for 3 seconds” instruction you noted in the Pop-Tarts® Microwave Instructions is correct. As you can understand, we carefully review and test the preparation instructions of our products to ensure consumer safety. Also, microwaves can vary in wattage, size, and heating capacity which can cause hot spots and inconsistency in heat distribution.

For reference, the complete Pop-Tarts® Microwave Instructions are as follows:

1. Remove pastry from pouch. Place pastry on a
microwave-safe plate.
2. Microwave on high for 3 seconds.
3. Cool briefly before handling.

Steve's answer must be the 'official' one he has to give , but Waldo is absolutely right. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE for ANY microwave to warm up a Pop-Tart in 3 seconds! 3 seconds won't do anything to anything in any microwave! Get real! Maybe 30 seconds, but not 3! Steve, try it yourself and see!
