Review- Waffletops Lemon & Strawberry Fudge Waffles

Waffles! Does anyone actually eat Waffles regularly? They have always been one of those things I buy on a whim, once in a Blue Moon. I spotted these Waffletops Waffles in Asda priced at £1.50 and thought I'd give them a go as they looked a bit different! 

The box contained 3 different individually wrapped Waffles with their own quirky character name. Each 80g Waffle contained 309 calories, a whopping 9.5g of Saturated Fat and 19g of Sugar. It stated that they could be eaten cold, straight out the packet or warmed up in the microwave.

These are some not so suprisingly, seriously sweet Waffles! It was apparent as soon as I opened the packet so I was expecting throat burning to ensue but it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. The Vanilla Fudge was definitely my favourite out of the 3. The Strawberry Fudge I found quite artificial tasting and ended up leaving half of sadly. The Lemon Fudge wasn't particularly zesty - I am a lemon fiend though so that could be why I was disappointed. The sugar crystals were quite tasty and gave a nice crunch. Texture wise, I am not sure who would enjoy these Waffles cold as they were so dense. Microwaving them made them much more appetising. They were softer and the fudge icing melted - even if it then could have passed as melted butter! 

Overall these weren't great but I enjoyed trying something I'd not seen done previously. I imagine they would be popular with kids although looking at the Nutritional Information, they're probably best kept as a treat. Waffletops also do a Chocolate & Coffee version I'd be keen to try. I wonder what will occur first, me having a hankering for Waffles or the next Blue Moon?! It's a 2.5 out of 5 from me!
