Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles
Any company that has been around as long as Van's has must be doing something right. For the few of you who don't know of Van's, they are a true pioneer in the prepared, ready-to-eat gluten-free food world. I've known of their products and have been gladly eating them for close to 20 years now, and chances are, so have you. When Van's got in contact with me recently to review one of their top gluten-free waffles, "Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles," I jumped at the opportunity.
The base ingredient of Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles is whole grain brown rice, which is probably why just two of these waffles contain a full serving of whole grains. This is great for those of you who, like myself, are trying to reduce cholesterol by eating more fiber. In addition to being gluten-free, these waffles are also egg-, corn-, and dairy-free, which is great for those of you who must also avoid one or more of these ingredients. (In addition to gluten, I also avoid chicken eggs.) A quick look at the ingredients indicates that they also do not contain any artificial flavors or colors, and they are Kosher and free of cholesterol.
Preparation is as simple as dropping them in a toaster for 3-4 minutes until they are crispy and hot. The true greatness of these waffles becomes apparent with your first bite—they are just like perfect versions of their wheat-based counterpart, and even have a delicate, light texture, yet they hold together perfectly—even with your favorite syrup and toppings. Even though I made them in a toaster they taste just like homemade waffles that came fresh off a hot waffle iron.
I would recommend Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles to anyone, and not just those who avoid gluten. These waffles are truly a cross-over "home run" product that will be enjoyed by everyone who tries them.
