    If I absolutely had to eat a frozen waffle, it would be Roman Meal, not Eggo.
    I can't remember the last decade I ate a frozen waffle.

    Thanks for setting off a craving! I still have my mother's old (1950's)
    waffle iron so maybe I'll make waffles for breakfast. Later... it's too
    early to eat

    I had home made waffles when I was a kid and my wife likes to make them.
    They are a bit of work, but they sure are worth it. I tried frozen
    waffles once, decades ago. I was not impressed.

    Can't imagine eating a frozen waffle but apparently for some people it's
    going to be the end of breakfast as they know it. Poor them.

    I'd rather make French toast.

    I've never liked waffles or pancakes either. For that matter, I don't
    even like french toast.

    I guess people are going to have to start actually cooking real food.
    Oh, darn. I can't even remember when I last had a frozen waffle. Maybe
    15 years ago? 20?

    Ah, but did you freeze any you made? I'll have to modify my original
    response. I have eaten plenty of frozen waffles, but they were the
    extras that we froze in bags with parchment between them. Toast them
    up, and you have a great quick breakfast on a weekday. We usually make
    four to six times the recipe of pancakes or waffles and freeze the
    extras.

    We do that as well. Any time that we make a batch, we make enough batter to
    stick a bunch in the freezer. They do toast up nicely :-)

    Toaster waffles rank up there with frozen fish sticks as kid food.

    Pop tarts rock! Blueberry nonfrosted with butter all smushed into the top. I
    know it has been decades.

    Maybe you have never had good ones. Over the years I have reluctantly
    tried pancakes, waffles and French toast in restaurants, usually pancake
    specialty places, and they never fail to disappoint. The worst pancakes
    were some in a pancake joint about a year ago. The worst French toast
    was in a local restaurant that used fresh cheap white bread dipped in
    egg nog <?> It was wretched. We eat all three at home on a fairly
    regular basis, making pancakes and waffles from scratch, and making
    French toast with good quality bread that has gone stale. They are all
    delicious.

    We just make single batches and wrap up any extras and keep them in the
    fridge for a day or two and toast them lightly, just enough to warm them
    up. They aren't as good as freshly made waffles, but they are better
    than Eggos.

    Yeah, but it's damned near impossible to find nonfrosted
    Pop Tarts any more, at least around here. I liked the brown sugar
    and cinnamon ones without frosting, but haven't seen any in the
    stores in years. Of course, I haven't really been looking too hard
    either, but every once in a while I'll check out the Pop Tarts
    section in the grocery store hoping to find some without frosting.

    My mom used to make pancakes and waffles from scratch all the time.
    She grew up on a farm and learned to cook at a very early age. Her
    waffles and pancakes always looked pretty and everybody else would go
    after them like a bunch of pigs but I just never did care for them.
    I'm sure they were good. I just don't like waffles or pancakes. The
    same goes for french toast. I don't like bagels either. Now I will
    eat any of that stuff if I have to. I would just never choose to eat
    it. For me a good breakfast is a bowl of cereal, a glass of fresh
    squeezed orange juice, and two pieces of cinnamon toast. If I don't
    have cinnamon toast I like to have a homemade croissant with either
    honey or strawberry preserves. Sometimes I'll indulge and have
    homemade cinnamon rolls or danish pastry.

    To tell you the honest to god truth, it probably won't shake them up
    any more and probably less than the pumpkin shortage.
