Eggo Limited Edition Waffles

Eggo Pumpkin Spice Waffles (Limited Edition)

While shopping for regular and buttermilk waffles, I happened to see these new waffles on the shelf.  Considering we're now into the fall season, they sounded like a yummy edition to the breakfast selection.  On the front of the box, pumpkin is listed as the first ingredient, then the spices, so I thought these would taste like pumpkin pie. 

The aroma of the waffles toasting found me feeling warm and comfy; the taste, not so much.  Don't get me wrong, they tasted good, but nothing to brag about.  I likened them more to eating a mildly flavored with pumpkin, whole grain bread, then a pumpkin pie full of flavor, flavor, flavor.  On the back of the box, the ingredient listing found wheat flour as the first ingredient; in the middle were the cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger; just before the preservative and chemical listing, pumpkin finally showed up. 

Overall, as a change from regular and buttermilk waffles, these were a good choice.  However, as the box advertises "Spice up your morning with the flavors of fall" breakfast, I have to give it a fail.  Sorry, but this isn't my Eggo.
