Review: Eggo FiberPlus Waffles! And Giveaway!

[ 22 ] 05/07/2011 |

By show of hands, who loves breakfast? (Come on, raise those hands high!) Better yet, who loves waffles? Yeah, I thought so. Me too.

In fact, I love waffles way more than I should, so I don’t eat them often. However, when I was contacted by Kellogg’s to give their new Eggo FiberPlus Waffles a try, I really couldn’t resist.

I fully admit that receiving frozen waffles in the mail is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me. I’m pretty sure I heard angels sing when I removed the dry ice (Note: You have to be careful with dry ice. It’s super cold. You’re welcome.) and saw those two boxes filled with chocolate chip and buttermilk yummy goodness. Yes, I had waffles for dinner that night. Yes, they were awesome.

I’ll bet most of you think that you “can’t have” waffles. I will be the first to tell you that throughout my weight loss journey, I have yet to give up anything that I love. So, while I may not smother my waffles in syrup any longer (OK, sometimes I use a little bit of syrup), I still enjoy my waffles. When you add waffles that have 35 percent of your daily recommended allowance of fiber (and! without sacrificing taste!) and excellent sources of antioxidants (chocolate chip) and calcium (buttermilk), there is no guilt in having the things you love. Just don’t eat the whole box in one sitting. It’s tempting, believe me.

So. Now to the fun stuff. Who wants to give yummy Eggo FiberPlus Waffles a try? Well, today is your lucky day because we’re going to choose one lucky reader who will get a chance to do just that because Kellogg’s has been kind enough to include us in the Eggo FiberPlus Better Your Morning Blogger Giveaway!

About april: I'm a brand new cyclist! In just a few short months, the sport has reminded me that it's all about the journey, and I need to enjoy the ride. I live with my two dogs and two birds, and love to spoil my nephew. Oh yeah, and I'm 32. View author profile.

    I like to give my kids strawberries (and cream) with their waffles, these look delicious.

    I use “I can’t believe it’s not butter” spray – which is 1 calorie per spray. I also have found that sugar free syrup isn’t terrible. So that is how I would choose to make waffles a healthier choice for breakfast. (along with eating an apple & having a glass of milk!)

    I just pile up the waffles with all kinds of fruits. The natural sweetness of fruit makes a great substitution for syrup. I personally like to top waffles with orange, tangerine, & grapefruit carpels for a contrast in sweet and sour then add blue, black, rasp, & sliced strawberries if I can for the Antioxidant boost.

    Love my LF waffles like this: a few sprays of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray, sprinkle on some cinnamon, and drizzle on Smuckers SF syrup. I’ve tried every SF syrup I can find, and this one is my favorite. Cary’s is my second favorite.

    My new favorite breakfast is 1 nutri grain eggo toasted with ICBINB spray. Then I’ll cube up an apple and sprinkle with 1 packet of splenda and cinnamon, then microwave for 1 min 30 sec and eating along side the waffle. SO GOOD!

    Healthier waffles?? I just use a bit of fresh fruit and I still get the yummy sweetness that I’m looking for! Love waffles, too!

    My son puts peanut butter on his. Peanut butter may be high calorie, but it’s got the fiber!

    I like my waffles with peanut butter and sometimes banana on it.
    If I’m craving something sweet I will put a little bit of sugar free grape jelly on them.
