Eggo Review and Giveaway

Waffles are the perfect start to a great morning. What's better than a scrumptious, warm blueberry waffle with a drizzle of maple syrup on it? Nothing if you ask me! Everyone loves waffles, they are a quick and easy breakfast in the morning when you are on the go.



Eggo is a brand of frozen waffles in the United States, Canada and Mexico, which is owned by the Kellogg Company. Several varieties are available, including original, blueberry, and chocolate chip. The waffles are bursting with flavor and truly delicious.

Eggo has recently come out with a new line of waffles, called Eggo Fiberplus. These waffles have a crispy, golden outside and warm and fluffy inside as other Eggo products, but they also are an excellent source of fiber, satisfying 35 percent of the daily recommended value. They are offered in two flavors: chocolate chip and buttermilk. The chocolate chip variety provides 20 percent of the recommended daily value of the antioxidants, Vitamin E and Zinc, while the buttermilk option offers 35 percent of the recommended daily value of calcium. Isn't it great to still have a great tasting breakfast while getting your daily intake of fiber too?




I was sent both varieties of the new line to try for review purposes. I've had the great pleasure of trying both of these flavors of waffles previously, but not with the new Fiberplus. Both waffles heat up quickly in the toaster and are ready to enjoy in just mere minutes. They have a perfect golden color to them. I love when the syrup pools up in the squares because each bite contains an equal amount of syrup-y goodness :). The warm waffle has the slightest bit of chew but is still firm and fluffy. Waffles are so comforting and bring you back to your childhood.

You can truly taste the chocolate chips in the chocolate waffle, but it's a very subtle hint of chocolate. It's not overly sweet and rich, but a fabulous treat in the morning. The buttermilk has a classic taste to it. If you still feel that you need a hint of flavor, how about adding some cut up strawberries or a few blueberries on top? That should kick-start your day instantly!

I think that it's excellent that Eggo has noted people's health concerns and stepped up to still make breakfast tasty, but include health benefits too.

I was also sent a $5 Starbucks giftcard with the waffles too which I'm sure will come in handy for breakfast :)
