Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Waffles Review

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Waffles

Lately, the Freezer Meal Frenzy staff can’t get enough of fall-inspired foods. We’ve been sampling all of Trader Joe’s seasonal items, from their Harvest Spaghetti Squash Spirals to their Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese. When we spotted Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Waffles, we knew we couldn’t pass them up.

If you’ve ever made frozen waffles before, you’ll be able to prepare these waffles with your eyes closed. We chose to cook our waffles in the toaster oven, but you can also heat your waffles in a full-sized oven or a standard toaster. Your breakfast will be ready to eat in no time!

Unlike your standard frozen waffles, these pumpkin-flavored treats are anything but plain. The waffles have a pleasant, slightly-sweet squash flavor. Even though our waffles came out nice and crispy, there’s a richness to them that we really enjoy.

Since these are pumpkin waffles, not pumpkin spice waffles, we recommend adding cinnamon and nutmeg if you want to recreate the flavor of pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice lattes.

We paired these waffles up with Trader Joe’s Maple Syrup, but they were flavorful enough to be eaten plain. If you don’t have any syrup on hand, you should still be able to enjoy this slightly sweet treat. We also think these waffles would pair very nicely with savory ingredients.  They’d be perfect for a waffle breakfast sandwich.

If you’re not sick of pumpkin by now, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Waffles are a terrific autumn breakfast. They’re a big step up from your standard frozen waffle, but they’re just as easy to prepare. Whenever autumn rolls around, we’re going to search for these waffles at our local Trader Joe’s.
