“ Brand: Belffles / Type: Bread / Cakes „
I first fell in love with cinnamon treats when I went to the USA, as they are really big on cinnamon over there, have you ever tried the hot rolls at Cinnabon? They are the best, so I'm always on the look out for anything containing cinnamon at home, whether its a candle, coffee or cake, so when I came across these little treats in my local Tesco Express, I bought one to pop in my bag to take to work for my lunch break that day.
Belffles Belgian Cinnamon Waffles cost a bargain 51p each, and contain 448 calories per 100g (the waffle is 90g) so is calorie laden. The package states that there is 23.2g of fat per 100g so this product is not that healthy and should be regarded as a naughty treat.
These waffles come packaged in a single serving, the wrapper is transparent with the Belffles logo in one corner and some rather delicious looking serving suggestions in the other. These waffles can be served hot or cold and are suitable for freezing. On the reverse of the packaging you'll find all the nutritional information, however, it does not state how much saturated fat each portion contains which I find a little bit of a let down, but that is the only downside to this product.
When you first open the packet you are met with the most delicious smell of sweet cinnamon, its not overpowering but does get your taste buds going. I like to have mine toasted, it states on the instructions to toast for 1 minute and leave to cool for a further 30 seconds. I like to toast mine for a little longer as it gives the edges a lovely crispy crunch, and keeps the middle really soft and fluffy.
When I pop them in the toaster, the kitchen fills with the delectable scent of candied cinnamon, this is the only way I can describe how mouthwatering they smell. You can also hear a slight sizzle when they are toasting.
After letting the waffle rest for a minute, as they are really really hot, what you are left with is a golden brown, slightly irregular shaped sweet waffle ready for any topping you can imagine, delicious with maple syrup, ice cream, fresh fruit or as I have mine, just as they are, hot from the toaster.
One bite and you'll be hooked. They are absolutely delicious, bite through the crunchy caramelised sugar sprinkled crispy outside, and let the cinnamon dance on your taste buds. There is also a sweet buttery taste to the fluffy dough on the inside. Total heaven.
I've had these regularly for breakfast since I found them, but more often than not they are out of stock when I return to replenish my little hoard of them. On my last trip I bought every one on the shelf (20 of them) but don't tell my other half, he thinks I'm mad anyway!
Go on treat yourself, they taste as good, if not better than any fresh made waffle in any continental restaurant/cafe!
