I love how the house smells when I bake a pumpkin pie. It brings back good memories of Thanksgiving with family: my parents healthy & energetic, my grandmother managing the event and my cousins & siblings playing our annual flag football game.
Our sense of smell is the strongest sense of memory. “When nothing else subsists from the past, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered· the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls· bearing resiliently” -Marcel Proust “The Remembrance of Things Past”
Eggo® waffles has captured my Thanksgiving memories with their limited edition pumpkin spice waffle. Pumpkin Spice is one of my favorite flavors, but not until I smelled the pumpkin spice aroma in my kitchen, did I truly understand how pumpkin could be considered the new bacon. http://www.cnbc.com/id/49122238/Pumpkin_Is_the_New_Bacon Pumpkin is more than healthy, it’s an American tradition that has deep memories associated with it.
How does the Eggo® Pumpkin Spice Waffle taste? With butter, Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup, whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg, the waffle is absolutely delicious. Wonderfully custardy and eggy with a light pumpkin spice follow through. The dash of nutmeg increases the custardy effect. Nutmeg is extremely effective in increasing creamy notes.
My children enjoyed these waffles as well. We have a new seasonal favorite! The kids were somewhat traumatized by the pumpkin pancakes I made a few weeks ago. The recipe I made was too healthy, requiring a large portion of canned pumpkin and oatmeal. Eggo knows what kids like and will eat. Moms try their best.
The nutritional benefit of the pumpkin spice waffles is adequate if served with milk. If my children manage to eat breakfast before starting their day, I am happy.
