The pros: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Waffles are easy freezer waffles, some pumpkin present, but the taste of pumpkin will not overwhelm you. More pumpkin spice to this waffle than actual pumpkin. For $1.99 for the box, it was a good deal.
The cons: If you like completely plain waffles, then stick to them.
The verdict: I'd buy this again as a nice change to regular waffles. These had a touch of spice and were not overwhelming on the pumpkin flavor. If you want the strongest flavor of pumpkin in a breakfast item, you should reach for Trader Joe's Pumpkin Rolls and don't forget about the icing. Unfortunately, this is a seasonal variety and will not be in the freezer section forever. So if you enjoy these it is best to stock up.

After polishing off 2 waffles, I can't wait to eat the rest of them in the box. For 180 calories for two, it wasn't an unreasonable breakfast either. I enjoyed them, I think you might too.
