I have always been a huge fan of breakfast! Ever since I was a little boy I have always looked forward to enjoy my first meal of the day. What is your ideal breakfast set up? Mine is two steaming Eggo waffle straight from the toaster. Topped with bananas and strawberries with a little bit of syrup. So when I was contacted by the cool folks at Eggo Waffles to tour the Eggo Kitchen in San Jose I just wanted scream #LeggoMyEggo for no reason!!!
How I Went to San Jose to See a Man About an Eggo Waffle
The day of our tour we were greeted by one of the head chefs at the Eggo Kitchen, and then prepared to tour the kitchen. Now I use the word kitchen loosely, because this is nothing like a typical kitchen. We wore full lab coats, hard hats, gloves, masks, and shoe covers. Our first stop on the tour is a white room full of digital scales, sifters, ingredients, and mixers. This is where all the ingredents come together to create the dreamest waffles ever know to man. I have to say this was the best smelling room in the building.
Next as to the best technological piece I have ever seen! Hundreds of waffle makers, hundreds, in a circular conveyer belt pressing waffles into shape. Moving on from there we witnessed the waffles coming from cold storage, getting packaged and boxes up for delivery.
Playing With Our Food – Eggo Waffle Style
The second part of our Eggo experience was more of a hands-on event! Our group was told that we were a part of the an Eggoji making an experience. In celebration of the new Eggo Eggoji app on IOS and Android smartphones. We had the challenge to create fun ideas that expressed us through the use of Eggos. As we all accepted the call, we used Eggos, fresh fruit, chocolate, candy, syrup, and many other items to recreate popular emotions.
I started off a cute winky face that I wold normally use when texting my wife, Staci. Then experimented with Nutella, whip cream, blueberries to create a Ninja. Together we all created our own idea of emotions, only to shared with the creative team at Eggo Waffles.
We finished the afternoon off with a few fun food ideas using Eggo Waffle. So keep a look out on the blog!
