(50) Days of Pumpkin: Day 35
Eggo Thick & Fluffy Pumpkin Spice Waffles are definitely #THICKE. Are they fluffy? Sure. But are they pumpkin spice? No, not really. The pumpkin flavor is so light that it’s barely detectable. Oddly, the spice is much more prominent, and it’s heavy on the ginger. This has the bizarre effect of making the waffle almost taste more savory than sweet.
Unfortunately, Eggo Thick & Fluffy Pumpkin Spice Waffles are just doughy, wheaty waffles with the tiniest hint of pumpkin and a strong burst of ginger. They don’t really taste like pumpkin spice, and there’s very little sweetness to them at all. Luckily, that last part can be remedied.
