Trader Joe's Gluten-Free Toaster Waffles Review

She says (sister B, age 8): Although these waffles were a bit dry, they managed to still stand rewarding: they were gluten-free, cheap, and not to mention that the pack contained eight whole waffles! My overall conclusion is that these waffles weren't the best tasting waffles you could buy, but because of their other standards, I would still encourage you to buy some. 
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

He says (brother N, age 12): These waffles are an exciting treat for someone who is gluten-free, but they have some drawbacks. I was ecstatic when I discovered these waffles; finding gluten-free waffles is very rare. It also came as a surprise that the normal batter was infused with small amounts of fruit concentrate, e.g., pineapples and peaches. This was integral to the taste of the breakfast food because it would have been dry and uninteresting without that special kick. However, it still needed some maple syrup and butter to taste good.

The instructions are a bit flawed if I had to quibble. The front of the box indicated that these waffles could only work if you had access to a toaster, which I do not. Only when I looked on the back did I realize that there were also instructions on how to bake them in the oven. It suggested cooking them for 2-4 minutes, but they tasted just fine when cooked for five minutes. There was not a description on the back of the package. I wonder if this was just a simple mistake (like a spelling error I found in the heating instructions) or something else, such as not having enough space or not having anything good to say about these waffles. The prices are spectacularly low, or at least lower than some waffles I have seen. In addition to that, they also come with eight entire waffles! My final evaluation is that they are a good treat for the gluten-free but are naturally a bit dry and bland.
Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars

Will they buy them again? 
(B): I would probably buy these again, only because it's rare to find a pack of gluten-free waffles.          (N):  If I could find them, I would definitely pick these up, not because of the taste, but mostly because of how rare gluten-free waffles are. 

Trader Joe's Gluten-Free Toaster Waffles: Maybe not the most spectacular tasting, but a treat for those who need a gluten-free option.
