Vintage Eggos Spot Turned Into The Epic ‘STRANGER THINGS’ Season 2 Teaser

Last night, during the Super Bowl, we were surprised to find an old Eggos commercial show up during the middle of the Big Game. Seconds later, the vintage scene at the breakfast table cut away and we knew what was about to happen.

It was the Stranger Things season 2 spot.

The hit Netflix series premiere its phenomenal first season on July 15, 2016, and for those of us who binged the whole thing in a day, we were left anxious to see how Eleven and the gang of lovable misfits would carry on into the next season. The Eggos opening is a reference to Eleven who developed quite the addition to the frozen breakfast item during the first season.

Now, like a plate of Eggos straight from the toaster, we had a sweet taste of what’s to come this fall.

Brayden Curtis, the mind behind the Foodbeast Katchup and admirer of meatball subs, had this to say upon viewing:

This will get me through the year.

You and me both, pal.

Check out the mind-blowing teaser for the upcoming season above which will premiere Halloween 2017. As if we needed another reason to love the candy-slingin’ holiday.

This Year’s Top Costume Is Stranger Things’ Eleven & Her Eggo Waffles

Halloween falling on a Monday means that a lot of costumes made their debut this past weekend. The most popular one, it seems, is the breakout character of Netflix’s Stranger Things: Eleven.

SPOILER ALERT!

Eleven, also knowns as El, is a young girl with psychokinetic abilities that escapes from a government facility and befriends a group of young boys looking for their missing friend. Along the way, they teach her things about the outside world.

Her experience leads her to discover a love for Eggo Waffles, the popular frozen breakfast item found in practically every grocery store in the country.

With the popularity of Netflix’s show spreading like wildfire, it was only a matter of time before people started dressing up as the characters for conventions and Halloween.

Check out some creative takes on El this year. In the meantime, we’re gonna see if we can hunt down a box of Eggos.

Mini Peanut Butter Maple Syrup Waffle Sandwiches

Big things come in small packages. These Mini Peanut Butter Maple Syrup Waffle Sandwiches are pretty tiny but are packed full of taste! The waffles I used are mini cinnamon Eggos, that I lathered with chunky peanut butter. I then poured just enough maple syrup to fill all those tiny squares on the top. These bite size sandwiches were delicious, to say the least. After the original two I tossed into my stomach, I made a couple more just for good measure! For those on a diet, low-fat peanut butter was used in the creation of this snack. Don’t feel too guitly!
