The pros: Trader Joe's Organic Silver Dollar Pancakes are very quick to make and you get to eat a bunch of these teeny tiny pancakes in one serving.
The cons: As always, it's cheaper to make your own than to have them pre-made in a box.
The verdict: Most weekends I'll make my own pancakes. During the week I wish for them. My morning routine is a well oiled plan down to the second. None of that time includes time t really cook. It's pretty much grab and go. I picked up Trader Joe's Organic Silver Dollar Pancakes to mix things up. They can be ready from the microwave in mere seconds.
When they say silver dollar it's as literal as you get. These are teeny tiny pancakes. While it looks like a lot in the box, it's really only three servings worth. Served plain these are everything you would expect a pancake to be: soft and cake like. These are a good substitute for the real thing if you don't have the time.
Speaking of value, this box costs $1.99 and so does Trader Joe's Buttermilk Pancake Mix. Which is a greater value? On price alone, the mix. However, if time is at a premium to you, then yes, there is value in this product too.
I'd buy this again to keep on hand for those busy mornings.
