Leggo My Eggo!
Eggo, the quick and easy breakfast company, has come out with a new, non-waffle offering: Eggo Real Fruit Pizza. These frozen "pizzas" consist of a cinnamony crust (somewhere between a biscuit and shortbread in texture) topped with fruity cream cheese, fruit and berries. This is what it looks like straight out of the package:
They can be cooked in the oven or heated in the microwave for a minute if you're in a hurry; the paper tray has a thermal finish that keeps it from getting too soggy. I thought it tasted better cooked in the oven, although I'm not sure it would be an everyday thing for us since we don't have a toaster oven and it seems wasteful to heat up the big oven for such a small item. I cut it into wedges and garnished with more blueberries for the kiddos.
The kids approved of the cream cheese and fruit but were skeptical of the granola. I thought it tasted pretty good and made a welcome change to our everyday cereal or bagel routine.
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Eggo Real Fruit Pizza and received a sample of the product and a $20 Amazon gift certificate to facilitate my review.
