So You Don't Have To

I love cereal for breakfast. It's quick and easy to get a decent meal and get on with the day. But sometimes, I want something else that's quick and easy to make and that's where Toaster Strudels come in.

These have been around for a very long time. It's got to be pushing 25 years because we started buying them when Carole was a kid. There used to be over a dozen flavors but they have scaled that number back to around 6. Every so often, they try a new flavor. Some of them are good and some are of the "what were they thinking" nature. I stumbled upon this new to me flavor recently and thought I'd give it a try.

Snickerdoodle, a flavor that reeks of childhood and cookies and warm aromas in the house. But how does it taste?

I had high hopes for this. It wasn't pumpkin, although I wouldn't be surprised to see a pumpkin flavored strudel in the fall. I hope not. Pumpkin has been done to death. Enough already! These were good. They had a hint of the cookie. The cream was reminiscent of the sugar cookie while the center jelly had the cinnamon-flavor. They were satisfying for a quick breakfast on those mornings when I didn't want cereal. I would accompany them with a glass of orange juice and felt it was a good start to the day. They aren't my favorite. I prefer their berry flavors, but I'd buy these again for a change of pace. Plus, they give "Boxtops for Education" and I save those for my niece's kids' school. That's a win although I don't buy things just because they have box tops.

Bottom line is, if you want something that's quick to make while you are scrounging up your lunch for a work day, these are good. Don't expect them to taste like a warm snickerdoodle fresh from the oven, but the flavor of the cookie is there.
