Review: You're family will find time with Eggo Bake Shop Twists

Do you eat breakfast as a family?

In my house, this usually only happens on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Weekday mornings are spent rushing abou
t, the girls getting ready for school, wolfing down some cereal, while I pack their lunches. I usually don't eat breakfast until I am home after walking them to school.

On the rare occasion we have a few calm moments before heading out the door, I notice we all smile a little more on that mornin
g walk. It seems to set the mood for the day, and it's so much nicer to start the day with a smile, instead of stress.

I was reminded of this when I was given the opportunity to review Eggo Bake Shop™ Twists by Mom Central and Kellogg.

Eggo Bake Shop™ Twists, are microwaveable pastry treats made of soft, pull-apart dough sprinkled with sugar crystals and Strawberry or Apple filling made with real fruit. Here's what the Twofer said:

M, "Mommy these are YUUUUUUMMMME

L, "mmmmmmmmmmmmm" as she polished off her strawberry twist faster than I could say "smile!" as in, for a picture.

Wait, smile!

I tried them as well and the first thing I noticed was the yummy bakery-fresh dough. Then I noticed they were delicious without being overly sweet - something I was concerned about. Just enough filling, but not too much.
The sugar sprinkles were just that, sprinkled -not a heavy glaze of icing or anything.

Eggo Bake Shop Twists & Circus clown cups bring the family to the table!

I realized as I popped 2 more into the microwave (25 seconds per the directions but I did 40 seconds for two) that a yummy treat would encourage all of us to find the time to sit down for breakfast together - mainly because we'd be fighting over the last Eggo Bake Shop™ Twist - but whatever gets you together, right?

My only suggestions to Kellogg:
I wish the twists were bigger.
I wish there were more than 4 in a box.
I wish they were made with whole grain like the Nutri-grain Eggo Waffles and Pankcakes.

How does your family find time for family breakfasts either during the week or on weekends?

  1. Love Eggo for the weekday morning breakfast when we are rushed to get the kids to school! Try to stick to home made on the weekends, waffles, pancakes, bacon, eggs....
