Recently, my wonderful Father brought over a package of Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes for me to eat. These frozen, fully – cooked pancakes can be heated in conventional or microwave ovens and they are very tasty. These pancakes are made by Kellogg’s and they are conveniently – packaged. Presented here, is one food writer’s honest and objective product review of Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes.
The net weight of the standard – sized box of Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes is 16.4 ounces. According to the package label, the box holds four 3 – pancake servings. I think that this serving size is realistic. Whenever I eat these pancakes, three of them are just the right – sized serving to satisfy my appetite. In physical size, the box is fairly large and requires a decent amount of storage space in one’s freezer.
The regular retail price charged for one 16.4 ounce package of Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes at Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is approximately $2. I definitely think that this price is reasonable, especially when the great flavor, convenience and overall high quality of the product are taken into consideration.
The texture offered by Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes is very similar to that of very good homemade, or restaurant – style pancakes. These flapjacks are light and fluffy, yet firm enough to offer some substance and they stand up to pancake syrup well, meaning they don’t get all soggy when syrup is poured on them.
Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes contain 280 calories, with 80 calories from fat, per three – pancake (116 grams) serving.

Taste / Flavor
These pancakes taste like flapjacks that are served in a breakfast restaurant. They are already expertly – browned, with no uneven splotches, or burnt sections and their sweetness level is just right. When topped with butter or margarine and pancake syrup, Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes taste like the type of pancakes I am never able to cook at home. If you like good, old – fashioned buttermilk pancakes, chances are, you will really enjoy eating these frozen flapjacks.
Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes are packaged in a fairly – large, yellow and blue cardboard box. The box features an appetizing illustration of the enclosed pancakes on the front label and a listing of all relevant ingredient and nutritional information on the rear label. Inside the box, the pancakes are further – packaged in two clear plastic bags, each of which holds two 3 – pancake servings.
The plastic bags are convenient and well – designed. If you use just one serving of flapjacks from one of the bags, you can twist or fold the open end of the bag, to re – close it effectively, ensuring the freshness of the remaining pancakes.
Eggo Buttermilk Pancakes are very tasty, fully – cooked, frozen pancakes. They offer the convenience of being able to heat and eat delicious pancakes in just a few minutes. These reasonably – priced flapjacks are stocked and sold at supermarkets across America and are highly recommended by this food writer.
