Frozen waffles are one of the better breakfast creations in recent history. The most popular brand being Eggo. But how did they come up with that wacky name?
When Eggos first launched in stores they weren’t even called Eggo. They had a totally different name that was actually kinda awesome. They were called “Froffles” which was a combination of the words “frozen” and “waffles”. Brilliant. But what ended up happening is they realized most people were just calling them “Eggos” for short because they had an eggy flavor to them. This made them switch the official name to Eggo.
I dunno… I’m way into that original “Froffle” name. They should bring that back, at least for some throwback promotion.
