Review: Great Day Foods Piggies ‘N Pancakes on a Stick
I think I mentioned some of the food shopping I did for New Years Eve. While doing that, I also decided it would be smart to pick up something easy for breakfast the next morning; both because I knew we would be tired and because we had to be some place later that same day.
I ended up buying a big box of Piggies ‘N Pancakes on a Stick from the brand Great Day Foods.
This isn’t the first time I’ve had a product like this. It’s essentially a corn dog; only there’s a piece of sausage wrapped in a pancake. In the past, I have had other brands and have liked this particular breakfast treat both because of the convenience and because of the great taste. But, I have found most brands were a bit too expensive for me.
What attracted me to the Great Day Foods brand was the fact it was actually affordable. I was able to buy a box of 10 Piggies ‘N Pancakes for under $5. However, I did find the quality wasn’t quite as good as the more expensive brands.
In terms of making these, you couldn’t ask for anything easier. All we had to do was wrap one in a paper towel and put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds and it was done. We were able to have breakfast and didn’t even need to dirty a dish (except for my wife, who used a small plate so she could dip hers in syrup.
The Piggies ‘N Pancakes were also surprisingly filling. I thought it would take at least two to provide me a full breakfast but I was full after only one.
But, I also noticed this particular brand of this product didn’t taste nearly as good as other brands we have purchased. For one, the sausage was a bit too spicy for me. I don’t normally mind spicy foods; I just don’t like them at breakfast.
I also noticed the pancake portion seemed to be a bit sweaty after making these. It didn’t really affect the flavor much, but it did make them seem a bit less appetizing in my opinion.
Overall, I feel this wasn’t a bad purchase. They weren’t the best I have ever had but I got OK value for a reasonable price. The next time I’m looking for something easy to make at breakfast, this will be something I will consider buying again.
