Eggo Bites™: New On-The-Go Breakfast Option for Busy Moms, Families New product allows families to enjoy waffles, a favorite breakfast option, away from the table

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- School day mornings can be chaotic, to say the least. Moms must juggle a lot to prepare their families for the day ahead. One-third of moms consider their morning routines a 'Traveling Circus,' a new survey from Eggo finds. As a result, there just isn't time to enjoy the family's favorite waffles and French toast—until now. A new, away-from-the-table line of Eggo waffles and French toast, called Eggo Bites™, provides a family breakfast favorite on the busiest weekday mornings. [1]

"Moms have a tough job getting their kids ready for the day and on some of the crazier mornings, the opportunity to serve a sit-down breakfast just isn't there," said Andrew Loucks, president of Kellogg's Frozen Food. "Eggo Bites™ adapts to moms' needs and treats families to a quick, tasty, warm waffle breakfast option they can enjoy away from the table anytime, anywhere."

Eggo Bites™ are microwaveable, portable pouches of bite-sized, flavored waffles or French toast. They are available nationwide in grocery stores for a suggested retail price of $2.99, and come in maple flavor (waffles), and cinnamon and vanilla flavors (French toast). And without the need for syrup, plates or silverware, Eggo Bites™ are the easiest Eggo ever!

Findings from the new Eggo Bites™ survey reveal:

  • Thirty-three percent of moms say a portable, tasty breakfast option would help them serve their kids a warm meal on even the craziest of mornings.
  • Thirty-seven percent of surveyed moms described the morning routine as a 'Traveling Circus,' while 22 percent compared their mornings to a fire drill in a movie theatre or an intense cardio workout (20%).
