Ah, waffles. Other than pancakes, I can't think of a more ubiquitous breakfast food item. And now we have a limited run of Trader Joe's Strawberry Waffles available on shelves.
So easy to make, and yet it is so easy to pop a few of these in the toaster and call it breakfast. At Trader Joe's they've had a number of varieties over the years.
Some are better, but they've all been pretty consistent and solid overall. Mango and chocolate chip were my standouts, but both have since been discontinued. The mango one I still remember. They used basically freeze-dried mangos and mango puree to give it that punch of flavor.
Here I went into this thinking it would just bit of freeze-dried strawberries. But I was pleasantly wrong. Here, the strawberries used to remind me of small chunks you might get in a jam. It was very fresh tasting for something that came out of my toaster. But the strawberries were sometimes more pronounced in some and I wasn't tasting them in others. Overall, there is a pleasant sweetness to these.
Best of all, the directions yield a pretty decent waffle each and every time. So, whether you bake them or toast them, these are pretty good. Just be sure to flip for evenness in cooking. Now, there is one thing that I was surprised to see.
On Trade Joe's website, it does mention this as a limited run item. This is one of those flavors that would work year-round. And honestly, I thought these were way better than the blueberry. But Trader Joe's has been known to change their minds on what a seasonal product is and what a year-round product is.
This is basic frozen waffle packaging. It is packaged in a bag inside the box. Could the bag be eliminated? Probably.
So Trader Joe's doesn't just sell this variety, they have sold many other varieties. Some seasonal, some year-round, and others have been discontinued. Here is a quick list of what I've tried over the years:
- Gluten-Free Waffles (year-round)
- Multi-Grain Waffles (year-round)
- Belgian Waffles (year-round)
- Chocolate Chip Waffles (winter seasonal, but was discontinued)
- Mango Waffles (discontinued)
- Pumpkin Waffles (Fall seasonal)
- Blueberry Waffles (year-round)
Where to buy
Since Trader Joe's Strawberry Waffles is a frozen item, this is only available at Trader Joe's stores.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe's Strawberry Waffles again. These have been my favorite since the Mango Waffles and Chocolate Chip Waffles were discontinued.
