The pros: Trader Joe's Belgian Waffles are extremely light, airy, tasty like a crepe waffle.
The cons: Only 4 in a box which is half of what you get with other Trader Joe's waffles. Each waffle is also very tall.
These waffles are unlike any other of the waffles I've tried at Trader Joe's. Clearly here there are difference that go beyond the appearance of a larger thicker waffle. This is a totally different batter than what you would find in Trader Joe's Gluten Free Waffles, Trader Joe's MultiGrain Waffles or any of the other flavored waffles available.
For $1.99, this won't go on my weekly shopping list, but it was good. I really enjoyed the waffle that was presented here. It was light as a feather. It came out of the toaster oven crisp. It would make a really great dessert waffle. As a breakfast waffle however, you'll probably be hungry before lunch and need a snack. My final thoughts are below the picture.

Would I buy this again? For dessert purposes yes, absolutely. This would be a wonderful, crispy, light as a feather compliment to ice cream, fruit, whipped cream, even possibly fried chicken. As a breakfast item, I'd say skip it. Since it is so light and airy you won't feel full or you'll have to eat most of the box to feel full. Better choices for breakfast are the regular varieties of waffle: Chocolate Chip Waffles, Blueberry Waffles, Mango Waffles, or even Pumpkin Waffles.
