New Foods I’m Loving: Kodiak Cakes Flapjack On The Go

Full Disclosure: I paid for this with my money and am not being compensated for this post in any way.  As always, all opinions are my own.  

I’ve always been a fan of pancakes.  Growing up, we made pancakes for breakfast pretty much every weekend.  My tastes about how I like my pancakes has changed a bit though.  I used to be a fan of the Bisquick version, and throughout the years I’ve grown to like a slightly sweeter, eggier, and thinner pancake.  (If anyone has the recipe for the 49er flapjacks at The Original Pancake House, I will be eternally grateful!)

For quick pancakes, my go-to choice now is Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix.  (I’ve reviewed these before – here) Recently while browsing the food aisles at Target, I came across a “flapjack on the go” version of Kodiak Cakes, and thought I would give it a try.

Calling these “flapjacks” (aka pancakes) is a bit of a misnomer in my opinion.  To me, no matter the flavor or texture, being flat is what makes something a pancake.  These are definitely not flat.  As you can imagine by the size and shape of the container, they are more like the shape of a muffin.  Which is totally fine with me, I just think it is a bit deceiving if someone thought they were going to get a flat pancake out of that container by the name of the product.

I have tried the Cinnamon Maple, and Buttermilk Maple varieties. (Those links are to Target’s website because I can’t seem to find them on the Kodiak Cakes site.  Maybe they are just that new?) While both are good, the Cinnamon Maple is definitely my favorite.  It tastes like a really light and fluffy cinnamon muffin. I like that it is a little bit sweet, too, in times that I am wanting a sweet snack.

Aside from the flavor, I also really like that these are full of whole grain and pure maple syrup!

Taste: A+, so good.
Cost: A-, you do pay for the convenience, but at $1.99 (and they actually were on sale for $1.79 last time I was there) I don’t think it is too bad to have a convenient, quality, food.

Would I buy them again?  Absolutely.  I have, and I’m sure I will again.
