“Eggo is warming up the frozen food aisle with a special morning delivery: Eggo Real Fruit Pizza.”
As the school year is quickly…like far too quickly…approaching next week, here begins the regimented morning routine. The one that requires me to be out the door EARLY when my natural rhythm is to have my kids in their jammies until at least 9 – and sometimes all day.
I digress – sorry. Back to breakfast.
Princess A and Mr. C are pretty easy to please at breakfast, but it is always fun to try something new. Enter Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas. Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas are available in two flavors: Mixed Berry Granola and Strawberry Granola. The oven baked cinnamon and maple flavored crust is topped with real fruit and warm toasted granola. With Real Fruit Pizzas, Eggo brought some consumer favorites together in one easy to make product.
Kellogg’s Eggo products are abundant in the frozen section. Our kids love their Nutrigrain Waffles, but having another breakfast option is always a good thing. Variety is key for our kids, although I must admit that low prep time and convenience rank right up at the top with variety. I mean – let’s get real. It seems there is never enough time in the morning when getting out the door for school…thus the one minute prep time on Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas is a major bonus. Just imagine – serving something warm for breakfast without a mess and you don’t even have to wake up thirty minutes early? Need I say more?
The Strawberry Granola Fruit Pizza is 400 calories and contains 12 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, and 4 grams of dietary fiber. The Mixed Berry Granola Fruit Pizza is 390 calories with 13 grams of fat (would love to know where that one gram difference comes from…), 10 grams of protein, and 4 grams of dietary fiber. At 390-400 calories for the entire pizza, portion control is important to remember. If you are eating just this for breakfast, 400 calories could be an appropriate amount. If you plan on eating anything else, make sure your pizza cutter is ready and waiting.
I was really interested to see if the topping was honestly ‘real’ fruit. I can happily report that it is. I took a close up shot of the texture and fruit so you can see for yourselves.
The overall taste of Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas is really quite good. By nature, I am a fruity girl so putting fruit on top of a slightly sweet tasting crust is right up my alley. The granola warms up nicely without getting mushy and the crust stayed soft as well. So overall, Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas get a thumbs up for a tasty and convenient breakfast option.
