Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat Waffles Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Jan 4, 2008

Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat WafflesFirst thing I noticed about Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat Waffles was the numerous health claims on the packaging - for just a waffle! On just the cover of the box, it says, "Now with white tea, can help reduce cholesterol, supports healthy arteries and nothing artificial." Furthermore, the American Heart Association's stamp of approval makes an appearance.

Well, how could I not buy them after all the hype on the box, so to begin my healthy breakfast (also good for dessert), I snapped the box open and pulled out 2 waffles. Their appearance and size is comparable to a "normal" waffle and after two rounds in the toaster, they appeared to be ready - the outside was a crispy brown and slightly burnt in a few little spots (just like I like it). I cut off a small bite and realized that the inside was a bit gooey compared to the crust. Maybe it is my cooking technique, but every time I make them, they turn out that way. In the end, it doesn't matter! After adding a drizzle of syrup (have you tried the delish Aunt Jemima Butter Lite Syrup), I was set. It tasted like a delicious, healthy version of the waffles I used to eat as a kid at Denny's. The taste is refreshingly subtle and sweet, and does not leave you with that gross overstuffed feeling, like many other waffles.

The Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat Waffles make you want to eat waffles every day, which would not be too bad with the nutritional stats that Kashi presents. First, the serving size engages your attention by offering 2 waffles. Each serving has 160 calories, 3 grams of fat (5% of the RDA), no saturated fat, 3 grams of fiber (a helpful 13% of the RDA), only 6 grams of sugar and 6 grams of protein. They are also fortified with many vitamins and mineralsc. The only turn off I can find is the sodium count at 370 milligrams (15% of the RDA), which is fairly high for breakfast, but it is worth it!

A box with 6 waffles (3 servings) cost $1.97 at a local supermarket. That is an amazing price for 3 tasty fortified breakfasts. Here are a few of my favorite toppings: peanut butter, syrup, yogurt, slow churned ice cream, Smart Balance buttery spread, fruit preserves, pumpkin or nothing! No matter what topping you choose, the tasty base stands strong!

Taste: 4.5
Nutrition: 4
Price: 5
Overall: 4.5
