Waffles are one of the ultimate snowy day breakfast foods. There’s something comforting about pulling crispy waffles out of the toaster and loading them with butter and syrup, or, if you’re feeling really indulgent, piling them with fruit, ice cream, whipped topping, sprinkles, or whatever else you want.
My family usually makes our own waffles from scratch using a waffle maker. If we don’t have time for homemade waffles, I sometimes buy them ready made from the freezer section at Aldi. However, I recently discovered that Dollar Tree also sells frozen waffles.
Creations Supreme Tradition Buttermilk Waffles cost $1.25 for a 7.5-ounce box that contains 6 waffles. That comes out to about 21 cents per waffle.
These are pricier per serving than the frozen pancakes Dollar Tree also stocks, which cost about 16 cents per pancake (and you get eight pancakes per box, while the waffles are only six to a box). These also cost more than a bulk box of 24 Great Value brand waffles at Walmart, which come out to about 16 cents per waffle. For additional comparison, a box of 10 Eggo name brand waffles costs about 28 cents per waffle at Walmart, while a larger box of 24 Eggo waffles at Walmart cost about 25 cents per waffle.
That means the Dollar Tree waffles are cheaper than name brand Eggo waffles, but you might find cheaper options if you go with other store brands such as Walmart’s Great Value.
These Dollar Tree waffles are distributed by Greenbrier International, Inc., which is the company behind Dollar Tree.
Ingredients are enriched flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, buttermilk, soy oil, soy lecithin, leavening (sodium acid pyrophosphate, baking soda, monocalcium phosphate), whole eggs, dry whey, sugar, and salt.
If you’re looking out for allergens, these contain eggs, milk, soy, and wheat.
One box contains three 2-waffle servings. One serving will net you 140 calories, 4 grams of total fat (5% DV), 0.5 grams of saturated fat (3% DV), 340 mg of sodium (15% DV), 23 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), 2 grams of total sugars, and 1 gram of added sugars (2% DV).
The box has directions for heating these in a conventional oven/toaster oven or a toaster. Microwave ovens are not recommended for heating these.
To heat in a conventional/toaster oven, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place frozen waffles in a single layer on a wire rack for 2.5-3 minutes or until crisp and hot.
To heat in a toaster, brown frozen waffles in a toaster at low setting. Serve on a warm plate with warm syrup and butter.
The side of the box also offers some serving suggestions.
Breakfast On the Go:
- Make a toaster waffle sandwich by cooking an egg to your liking and putting it between two waffles. Add a slice of cheese to complete your sandwich.
- Make a sandwich with two waffles spread with peanut butter with banana slices.
- Make a BLT by spreading cream cheese on your waffles and adding bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
Sweet and Simple:
- Make an ice cream sandwich by scooping ice cream onto a waffle and topping off with another waffle. Add sprinkles if desired.
- Dip waffles in melted butter and then in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon for a churro-style dessert.
- Serve waffles with fresh fruit, whipped cream, and a dusting of powdered sugar.
I opted to heat our waffles in a traditional toaster and serve them with butter and syrup. These have a nice buttery scent when you pull them from the toaster.
My family enjoyed these waffles, and they didn’t last long on the breakfast table. They have crisp exteriors and soft interiors like we expect with waffles. They’re not fluffy like homemade waffles or the kinds of waffles you get at a hotel breakfast spread, but they hold their own against other brands of frozen waffles. I’d buy these again if I needed waffles and happened to be at Dollar Tree.
Creations Supreme Tradition Buttermilk Waffles from Dollar Tree have a taste and texture that is similar to other frozen waffle brands. They cost less than name brands such as Eggo but more than other store brands such as Walmart’s Great Value, so they’re mid-priced as far as waffles go. You only get six waffles in a box, which is less than most other frozen waffle brands. These taste fine and are reasonably priced, so if you’re at Dollar Tree and need some waffles, these might be worth buying.
