Kodiak Cakes Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix: Perfectly Delicious
A quick reminder about my food reviews (and other reviews) on the Get Cooking food blog: I am sent products to review. I am not paid for these reviews nor encouraged what to say in the least. Over the years I’ve learned this, If someone has a product that’s great, they don’t mind sending it out into the blogosphere to be reviewed. They have confidence in the quality of their product and, it’s been my experience that it’s for a very good reason! All of my reviews are written entirely by me, with all of my own opinions and rambling. I respect you too much to ever be anything but completely honest with you – so if I encourage you to try something, you can rest assured that you should do just that.
I take this stuff almost as seriously as I take my morning coffee!
A recent product I was sent to review is pictured here: Kodiak Cakes 100% Whole Grain Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix (Buttermilk & Honey). I was sent two boxes and only one remains… and it’s almost half gone. Yes, it’s that good.
The first thing I noticed was the cool box. Though I wouldn’t care to meet one face to chest, I have a STRONG fascination with bears so I was smitten by the guy on the front right off the bat. Leave it to me to be impressed by a box, but this is one cool box. Don’t judge me, please.
Naturally, I had to make some flapjacks right away. I grabbed my bottle of Log Cabin Syrup and didn’t waste a minute. I made some with blueberries and some without and every single flapjack was fantastic. I even gave the flapjacks the old “How do you taste without butter and syrup” test and they passed with flying colors.
To be honest, I really wasn’t expecting flapjacks from a mix to taste this good. Seriously, how could anything that’s so easy and so fast to make actually taste great? Fortunately, they taste fantastic!
Kodiak Cakes Flapjacks have SO much flavor!
Most people today need their meals to be fast, easy, and accomplished in as few steps as possible. With Kodiak Cakes Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix, the steps couldn’t be simpler:
- Add water
Kodiak Cakes has a great tutorial called 10 Tips to the Perfect Flapjack that’ll serve you well. Normally, I make my pancakes as thick as possible, but (in my strange little mind) I envision flapjacks thinner than pancakes, so I made them thinner on my first batch. The next time I made flapjacks, I made them thicker. I wanted to see how a mix would hold up to the normal way I make pancakes.
It held up like a champ!
Kodiak Cakes 100% Whole Grain Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix (Buttermilk & Honey) scores a perfect 10 on my chart for packaging, nutrition, price, and taste. As a bonus, they’re easy and convenient to find. Nothing’s quite as frustrating as trying and loving a product, then being unable to find it anywhere. You can order Kodiak Cakes online or find them in a store near you. They’re available in Target, which is like a home away from home for me, so I’m set. They’re also available in other stores around the country. (See: Where to Buy Kodiak Cakes for stores near you!)
Some people mix their fruit into the batter, I just place them on top as they begin to cook. Less chances of getting blue pancakes that way.
