I visited my mother in New Jersey this week and found myself at Target. A freezer on the end cap was filled with Kellogg’s Eggo Seasons Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Waffles. I figured I like waffles and love pumpkin so into the shopping cart they went.
Kellogg’s says “Spice up your morning with the flavors of fall. Made with pumpkin spices–cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.”
Taking the waffles out of the box the first thing I noticed was the pleasant pumpkin spice scent. I thought to myself if these taste anything like they smell they are gonna be awesome. The color was somewhere between yellow and brown with visible spices speckled throughout. After toasting them I took my first bite…what a let down! I was expecting an explosion of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger but I got a whimper instead. Barely a hint of pumpkin spice flavor, I felt ripped off. On a positive note they were soft and had the same texture as other Eggo waffles I’ve tried.
I had high expectations for these waffles but I was disappointed. I liked what little taste they had but felt it was far too subtle.
Skip these and go for the Dunkin Dounts Pumpkin Munchkin.
