Van's 8 Whole Grain Waffles - Review & #Giveaway - 5 Winners!



If we didn't eat waffles at least once a week, you'd know something was wrong! 99.99% of the time, I make them from scratch. In fact, I constantly change the recipe and add all sorts of crazy things. It's been years since we've eaten a toaster waffle. Well, until this week. 

We were given the opportunity to sample Van's 8 Whole Grains waffles. My feelings about them are mixed. First of all, let me tell you that I've eaten them before. Back when I used to buy freezer waffles, I thought Van's were the cat's meow. 

And here's why:
Van's waffles are found in the "organic" department of my grocery store. And for good reason. The do, indeed, make organic waffles, but all of their waffles (organic or not) contain quality ingredients. Whole grains, no hydrogenated (or partially hydrogenated) oils, non aluminum baking powder, no high fructose corn syrup.....

The problem for me....I am just such a fresh food snob. I like having control over what goes in each and every thing I make. And I like the fresh, just made taste/feel. 

The best part though....my kids made breakfast! And they loved the fact that they could get out the box, toast them, and serve the family....all on their own! 

I'd buy these again - if I was going on vacation and didn't have stove access. But for every day, I've got plenty of time to make my own. 

Want a chance to try them? Van's is generously giving (5) Suburban Jungle readers a FREE box of Van's waffles. Each winner will receive a Voucher good for (1) Free Box of Van's waffles. Any variety, any flavor - even organics.

To Enter: Leave me a comment telling me why you'd like to win.
