Stranger Things – Where can you find your own Eggo?
Eleven’s obsession has spread worldwide with people dying to find Eggo’s here in Europe. Made by Kellogg’s and sold in the United States – it’s going to be a difficult task.
I’m not going to use click bait to make you stay and promise you Eggo’s at the end of this blog – BUT WAIT! We have basically the same thing. We have quick and easy to make McVitie’s Waffles, which taste delicious. Or, we at least have the perfect ingredients to make your own. Let me explain the differences and help you get your dream waffles!
At its core? It’s a waffle. Kellogg’s finest frozen waffle was the only thing Eleven could steal to eat on the hit TV show Stranger Things. Sold in America, you can get the classic frozen waffle everywhere you look. Want a twist on the original? You can look out for all the various versions including miniature, blueberry, chocolate chip, strawberry and more! Easy to prepare, all you need to do is pop them in the toaster or heat them up in the grill and you have waffley goodness on the go.
McVitie’s holds a dear place in the heart of Brits everywhere. The maker of possibly the best biscuits in the world, they have now branched out into the world of waffles. To show you the comparison to Kellogg's Eggos, we've simply but them side by side, you be the judge!

The way of preperation is identical as you toast the waffles between 30 and 40 seconds on a low setting in your bread toaster.
Add some chocolate chips, whipped cream or drizzle some maple syrup on top for the perfect serving. Autumn is fast approaching and there’s nothing better than a toasty waffle on a cold morning to get you going!
