Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas from Kellogg's

Update: It appears that this product has since been discontinued - As of 12/2011 I cannot find information on either fruit pizza on the Eggo website. Please visit to view the other fabulous Eggo products.

Oh my goodness, you cannot possibly tell me that that doesn't just look yummy!! Thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program I had the opportunity to give these new Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas a taste test in both the Strawberry Granola and Mixed Berry Granola flavors.

With school just about to kick in and the hurry-up rush that always seems to come with it ... no matter how organized you think you are ... these are gonna be a great way to get a nutritious meal in your kids - or yourself before heading out the door.  I'll be honest. I had initially planned to try these out on some youngsters myself, but decided to go ahead and give them a spin myself - and boy, I'm really glad I did! I honestly wasn't sure how this product was going to translate taste-wise, but gotta say I really was impressed!

These are individual sized personal pizzas, so they're perfect to keep on hand in the freezer. The crust, which I initially expected to be an Eggo waffle, is actually more pizza-crust like, except that it is lightly sweetened with cinnamon and maple flavors. That's topped with what appears to be a flavored, neufchatel cheese base, and then crunchy granola and real fruit.

One minute in the microwave on the crisping tray that is provided and you've got a quick, tasty and convenient breakfast option for those rushed mornings.  I'm not a big fan of cooking in the microwave, particularly with pizza crusts, so I chose to cook mine in the oven for a crispier crust, but these are a perfect size for the toaster oven too.  It takes only 5 to 7 minutes, placed directly on the oven rack and allowed to cool for about a minute. Loved that crunch!

These really would be a nice change from cold yogurt, cereal, or even a snack bar - give 'em a try! I have a feeling you'll love them too.

Disclosure: As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received Eggo Real Fruit Strawberry and Mixed Berry Real Fruit Granola Pizzas to try.
