We were out and about early to pick up the granddaughter so that’s what I chose for my breakfast!
This is what it looks like on their website:
This is what it looked like in my lap while driving (sorry, its blurry) :
Pretty much the same, right? Not a total lie like Amarula.
The first thing we noticed as we (Hubs and I) unwrapped them, was the smell. Solid maple. Oooooh. Then we took our first bites.
Solid sugar! Which I guess is to be expected but I was a little confused because there was no real maple flavour.
Weird, but OK.
The next thing I tasted was that pepper. I think it comes from the sausage which other than the peppery tastes was pretty much non-existent flavour wise. The egg was also there but not there and thank Goddess for the cheese because I really think its fake salty creaminess cut through some of the sugar taste. I appreciated the cheese! The waffles themselves were not entirely crisp all the way through, only so at the cross hatches. I liked that, the hubs did not. It wasn’t falling apart soft, just sort of mushy in spots and the whole thing held together well. There was an over all texture of sugary graininess. It was like eating a breakfast sandwich made between two doughnuts. It was like someone had dipped the waffles in a grainy simple syrup.
In the end, the Hubs said ,
“It’s not horrible. I imagine its hard to keep the waffles crisp when you’re cooking for so many customers”
I liked it. I’d eat it again, if for no other reason than to see if Tim’s is consistent. I wish it was less sweet and less peppery with a more savoury profile but I thought it was good. I really liked the crisp bits at the crosshatching and the way the cheese cut through the whole thing.
I kinda wanna make my own version. Maybe watch for that here!
