Belffles Belgian Waffles
I bought these Belgian Waffles a week ago from Tesco and I bought the pack which contains four waffles (not one waffle as the picture would suggest). I had not tried Belgian Waffles before I bought these, but now I am going to have to get a lot more of them!
- About the product and some of the main ingredients
The pack contains four Belgian Waffles which are really quite big; I thought they would be smaller than they actually were. One of the best things about these waffles, and this brand, is that the four waffles themselves are wrapped and sealed in their own individual clear plastic pouch, so they remain fresher for longer. The waffles can be served hot or cold but I always have them warm as they are just nicer that way, in my opinion. The pack also contains a few serving suggestions, such as waffles with: ice cream, fruit or as a snack. The waffles are 60g each, these waffles are suitable for vegetarians (like me) and they do not contain artificial preservatives, colourings or animal fats. Some of the main ingredients of these waffles are as follows: wheat flour, sugar, vegetable fat/oil, egg, yeast, soya flour, salt. Contains gluten, egg and soya and these waffles may contain traces of nuts and milk products.
-Product description (from packaging)
"Belffles waffles are made in Belgium using an authentic 'liege waffle' brioche bread dough recipe using the finest GM free ingredients. The crisp, sugary texture is created by mixing peal sugar with the dough which caramelises on the outside of the waffle when baked, giving a unique flavour and taste sensation".

- Serving and taste
I always have these waffles hot, well warmed in the microwave, as they do not sound very appealing cold. I heat one up in the microwave for about 20 seconds, no more than this as it will be too hot (and this depends on the wattage of your microwave). On the back of the package there are microwave instructions - it also says that you can put them in the toaster too. After the waffle is heated up for 20 seconds I then add fresh strawberries and I then add quite a lot of maple syrup (Clarks maple syrup from Tesco). I really like the combination of the maple syrup and the Belgian Waffles as it does make it a bit sweeter (even though the waffles themselves are really sweet and contain quite a bit of sugar) but I just adore the taste of maple syrup and I try to put it on everything (well every sweet thing, like ice cream and these waffles).
The waffles have a nice smooth texture apart from sometimes around the outside of the waffles where you can get clusters of sugar grains, which I am not too keen on but overall these waffles taste great and they are not overly, overly sweet in my opinion. I also really like the combination of these waffles which are quite sweet with the strawberries which are fairly sour and the strawberries make the waffles are bit healthier. I have yet to try these waffles with ice cream, although as I have one left I may try ice cream and warm waffles later on today! I believe that these Belgian Waffles are actually served for breakfast but I have been eating them as desert as they are sweet and they are really filling in my opinion, so they would be really good for breakfast too. Overall, I really like these waffles as they are sweet, but not overly so, they are great with maple syrup and strawberries and the taste great - and they are really filling for me.
- Price and availability
I bought these waffles from a large Tesco store and they are currently priced at: £1.10 for the pack of four that I bought, which I think is an ok price as I do not eat these all of the time and they are like a treat at the end of the day.
*Taste gorgeous and in my opinion they are not overly, overly sweet but as taste is very subjective others may think they are too sweet (as my sister thinks these are)
*They can be combined with other foods, such as maple syrup and strawberries which is just gorgeous! And they can also be combined with ice cream
*They can be served hot or cold and they look yummy too, in my opinion
*Individually wrapped so they remain fresher for longer
*They are really filling for me and they keep me full for a couple of hours
*Does contain quite a bit of fat and sugar but they are an occasional/treat food for me

Thank you for reading my review
Wandering around my local Tesco Express store just last night I decided to pick up a few little treats for myself. I love sweet waffles and realised I hadn't had them in ages and so when I spotted these on the shelves and in single packs I remembered that I had a can of squirty cream in the fridge and some chocolate sauce and decided to be a little piggy and so grabbed one!
The waffle comes in a see-through and dark blue plastic wrapper and on the front of it we are told that it is Belffles Sweet Waffle 'Delicious hot or cold' and we are shown a few little colour photographs of the waffle covered in different toppings like with ice cream and fruit on etc. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice, there is a nutritional chart listed and heating instructions are given and contact details for Belffles are given as well as the weight stated of this one waffle which is 90g and these are available as well in different shapes, sizes and packet sizes too.
The waffle is thick and a rounded off oblong shape with lots of cut out squares all over it. You can eat this cold/warm/hot and to do that you can either toast it by palcing it in a toaster for about about a minute (I tried this but it was too fat to fit in my toaster) or you can pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds (as I did).
The waffle smells sweet in a natural sugary way though is smooth to the touch so doesn't create sticky hands really.
Taste wise I was so impressed with this! It tastes of wheat and sugar and is just simply very yummy indeed! I topped mine with chocolate and cream and it just felt so indulgent.
Suitable for home freezing I'm back off to Tesco later to buy more of these lol! Moist and yummy, filling and versatile these Belgian made waffles are simply gorgeous its as simple as that!
