I thought Eggo waffles were only good as syrup sponges, but after waking up from a syrup induced coma with my face in a pool of Mrs. Buttersworth’s, I found out they have redeeming nutritional qualities. There are vitamins and minerals in Eggo waffles, although I think they’re negated when I dump a 1/4 of a cup of syrup on them. But without syrup they’re like round Simpson yellow Flintstones vitamins.
Even though Kellogg’s are masters at providing consumers with essential vitamins and minerals in frozen waffle form, they’re not standing still and they’re taking it another step forward with their new Eggo FiberPlus Waffles.
It comes in two varieties: Eggo FiberPlus Calcium Buttermilk Waffles and Eggo FiberPlus Antioxidants Chocolate Chip Waffles. Eating two of these waffles provides 35 percent of your daily recommended intake of fiber. If you fear osteoporosis, two Eggo FiberPlus Calcium Buttermilk Waffles give you 35 percent of your daily calcium. If you want to boost your immune system, two of the chocolate chips ones will give you 20 percent zinc.
So suck it, milk and peanuts!
