Taste test: This individually wrapped waffle was pre-cooked, pre-sweetened, sold at room tempertature, and its "sell by" date was 16 days away when I bought it.
So can a packaged, fairly shelf-stable waffle be good? In this case, no. The waffle was thick, with large, deep square sections and an irregular edge. There was no crispness at all, the texture was very dense and bready, and though the whole thing was slightly sweet, most of the sweetness was concentrated into some small lumps of sugar hidden within. Worst of all, it left a greasy feeling in the mouth at the end. Not good. (The best waffle I ever had was from a waffle stand at a subway station in Brussels. Of course, unlike this one, it was freshly made, with an interval between waffle iron and mouth that probably measured in seconds. It was amazing!)
