Watch The 7 Best Eggo Waffle Commercials From Our Childhood

It’s astounding how three words so easily became synonymous with a brand for decades. Whenever we hear the phrase uttered, we immediately picture two people in a kitchen fighting over the last Eggo Waffle. Those three words:

L’eggo my Eggo.

In honor of the upcoming National Waffle Day on August 24th, we found some of the most iconic Eggo Waffle commercials to ever air. No joke, chances are you’ll probably find us at a freezer aisle of a supermarket with a mountain of Eggo boxes in hand after watching these vintage ads.

See how many you can remember seeing on TV!


L’eggo My Eggo

One of the earliest ads, if not the very first, this 1972 Eggo commercial popularized the famous catchphrase that would become a pillar for the frozen breakfast brand for years to come. Here, a lippy kid is arguing with his bill-paying father about who deserves the golden brown disc smothered in maple syrup. Homeboy’s act of defiance lit the match of childhood waffle insubordination for generations.

1980 Jason Hervey

You may remember Jason Hervey as the obnoxious older brother to Kevin Arnold in the classic Wonder Years. Before he made it big as an ‘8os-’90s actor, Hervey was the star of an Eggo Waffle commercial. Watch as this adorable tyke tricks his sister into staying away from his waffles by pretending there’s some kind of something on her arm.

The Eggo Waffle Man

In 2005, Eggo Waffles aired a slightly disturbing commercial that featured an anthropomorphic Eggo Waffle walking along minding his own business. Suddenly, a giant fork comes out of nowhere as the golden-brown humanoid runs for his life. Sure it was hilarious at the time, but looking back at those shots of a fork cutting through that crispy waffle soon after, it’s actually pretty dark.

Hey, Squirt

As a kid with older siblings, you tend to have to fight to get the last serving of breakfast upon occasion. Eggo Waffle’s 1994 commercial featured a kid who wished he was bigger than his brother just so he wouldn’t lose out on that breakfast waffle every morning simply because of his small stature. Note how much this kid looks uncanny to the one from the 1972 Eggo ad that ran nearly 20 years prior.

Until Today

The ’90s were a time of unnecessary complicated Rube Goldberg machines and dimwitted parents. A time when kids got to shine. This Eggo commercial featured a teenage boy annoyed that he’s always last to get a breakfast waffle. Instead of simply waking up earlier, he decides to build a machine from his bedroom that essentially steals an Eggo from his unsuspecting father. No respect.

Monster Girl

With each commercial we see, the general theme is to not stand between someone and their Eggo Waffle. In this ad from the early 2000s, a little girl is playing with her doll and enjoying a nice plate of Eggos. Her older brother, who already finished his, attempts to steal a bite. The seemingly sweet girl transforms into a monster and terrifies the shit out of her older sibling.

Don’t Steal Eggo Waffles From The Baby

As we’ve seen from our previous Eggo commercials, it’s best to keep your hands to yourselves when it comes to Eggo Waffles. This sneaky dad just wanted a bite or two of the crispy, golden-brown waffles. Since his son was already wise to his shenanigans, he decides to steal some from his baby girl. Unfortunately, this exposed him to a superhuman beatdown. Poor fella.

How Bad Do You Want These Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bites?

General Mills just announced what could possibly one of their sweetest additions since the original Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal: Bite-sized mini donuts.

In their recent announcement of new Summer 2017 products, the breakfast cereal and snack company revealed that they’ll be launching Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bites.

While probably still good with milk, these warm donut-hole like pastries are dusted with cinnamon sugar and filled with a sweet cinnamon filling and can be eaten on the go. All you have to do is pop those balls in the microwave for 30 seconds.

You can find the bites available at the frozen food aisle of your local grocery retailer in boxes of 18 pieces. The bites will presumably be around through the end of summer.

Velveeta Is Now Selling Stuffed GRILLED CHEESE In The Frozen Foods Section

We don’t see as many grilled cheese options as we’d like in the frozen foods section of our local grocery stores. This is more likely because they are so easy to make, with minimum effort. If you’re looking to quell those grilled cheese pangs without having to fire up that stove, however, then there’s a box of liquid gold at the end of the rainbow of frozen food packages.

Velveeta has introduced a new line of Stuffed Grilled Cheese, reports Brand Eating.

Essentially, its a biscuit turnover that’s filled with Velveeta cheese. You pop it in the microwave and the cheese becomes a molten gold ooze hidden inside the flaky crust. Simple, yet effective.

Velveeta also introduced a line of Cheesy Bites, which are crispy breaded poppers filled with original cheese or salsa con queso. Might as well fire these up, too , since your microwave’s already warmed up.

You can get the new Grilled Cheese and Cheesy Bites in 8-oz and 16-oz boxes at participating grocery retailers now.

Watch Korean Girls Try American TV Dinners For The First Time

You may know DigitalsojuTV as the channel that chronicled Korean women trying various Western dishes for the first time. These foods included various types of American pizza, American BBQ, and authentic Mexican food.

In their latest video, a panel of Korean girls try TV dinners for the first time. The different dinners include the iconic Salisbury steak, fried chicken, and a roast turkey Thanksgiving dinner.

Prior to this, the only frozen foods they’ve eaten at home were chicken nuggets or dumplings.

Watch these women try classic frozen foods they normally wouldn’t have bothered with outside of this experiment. As they dine on the microwavable meals, albeit not in front of a TV, they provide some pretty thoughtful opinions and insights to the frozen dinners.

Can’t even remember the last time we’ve had a Salisbury steak.

London Pop Up Lets You Pay for Dinner By Instagramming It

insta

Broke Foodie Hipsters Who Have No Business Eating Out So Much When They’re So Severely Underemployed, take heed: a new pop-up restaurant in London wants to put your particular talents to good use, by letting you pay for dinner not with your wallet, but with your Instagram account.

Frozen food company Birds Eye is hosting a pop-up in Soho called The Picture House, where food-loving Britons will be allowed to pay for their dinners simply by Instagramming it with the hashtag #BirdsEyeInspirations. It’s a silly gimmick, designed to improve people’s perceptions of frozen foods as part of the company’s “Food of Life” campaign, though aspiring food-tographers will benefit from the guidance of pro-photographer Marte Marie Forsberg, who will be on hand to help diners arrange their oeuvres.

As it stands, it seems all diners will receive the same treatment regardless of their Instagram followings.
