FREE Yogurt & Organic Frozen Waffles

Today is "National Waffle Day" and like last year, your Chocolate Priestess is going to review some frozen and quick mix varieties you might be looking at.

Van's are a brand that I find in our local Kroger and at our local co-op so I know it meets the local criteria for all natural, organic and supposedly healthier foods.  I bought these on sale with a coupon as you know I often buy things.  As with many all natural foods we have to be aware of possible allergens such as wheat, egg, soy and milk in these.  Frankly that's just normal for any frozen waffle I've seen.  The chocolate chips are made with cocoa butter and chocolate liquor so a nice high quality chocolate taste should be for the enjoying.
 
These are small, about three of them equal one large waffle I could make in my waffle iron but 4 of them equals one serving.  That serving has 210 calories, before any syrup you might want to use, made up of 1g saturated fat, 490mg sodium (whoa!), 1g fiber, 8g sugars, 4g protein, with 30% of the calcium and 10% of the iron an adult needs daily.  As you can see I made these in our oven not the toaster because they are too small to safely get out once hot.

They were nice and crisp coming out of the oven and the chocolate was good.  I didn't want to use syrup on them but if you do, I recommend not too much or you'll drown the chocolate and we don't want that.  Over all for frozen waffles, these pleased us greatly.

Not related to waffles really, though I suppose you could add this product to them in some fashion is a FREE off from Dannon Activia Yogurt.  Here's the legal: "This sponsorship is brought to you by Activia Selects who we have partnered with for this promotion.
