REVIEW: Kellogg’s Eggo Cinnamon Churro Waffles

I have great news for you if you want a waffle with less flavor than Eggo’s original Homestyle waffles. These new Kellogg’s Eggo Cinnamon Churro Waffles will satisfy your unadventurous taste buds. But if you’re craving something with a delectable cinnamon and/or churro flavor, look elsewhere in the frozen food section. Or visit one of the fairs, carnivals, or festivals happening this summer because you won’t satisfy your sweet tooth with these frozen waffles.

In a frozen state, they smell faintly of cinnamon, and while being toasted, they emit an equally quiet cinnamon scent that’s only noticeable if you’re standing about two or three feet away from the toaster. After pulling them from the kitchen appliance, they seem to have an even weaker smell. But what my nose could detect by putting it just over the waffle reminded me of cinnamon swirl bread, but the parts that aren’t even close to the swirl. All this was not a good sign, but it prepared my taste buds for the disappointment that was to come.

If you offered this to a complete stranger and told them it was a cinnamon churro flavored one, any chances of you earning their trust and going from a stranger to a friend (or lover) would go out the door because they would see you as a liar since these have a taste that’s even lighter than its aroma. Because I know what these are supposed to be flavored, I kind of notice the cinnamon, but it’s not enough to convince me it’s also supposed to have a churro taste. Oddly, adding regular pancake syrup somehow unlocked some more cinnamon, but that still made them less flavorful than Eggo Homestyle Waffles. So, if you plan to eat these sans syrup, I pity your taste buds.

I thought about drizzling chocolate syrup on these, like what’s shown on the box, but I didn’t want to be disappointed anymore.

I don’t find Kellogg’s Eggo Cinnamon Churro Waffles to be awful. At least they don’t taste like the box they came in. I’ll finish them with disappointment and syrup. Definitely syrup.

  1. I can’t recall the last time I had a “good” Eggo waffle, aside from the Liege-style waffles. I’m pretty sure they changed the formulation a while back, and they’ve been disappointing since then. I’ve switched over to the store brands and found them to be much tastier.

  2. If I get these, I will make my own fun and serve them with Dulce de Leche and a sprinkling of CTC Cinnadust 😀

  3. Hey Baby, wanna taste my cinnamon waffle? Does that really work ever?

    Here you go Marvo, hit up Walmart (your rock in the ocean price may be higher!)
