THE BOMB of 2009
My kids LOVE commercials. Once upon a time, I didn't allow them to watch any tv stations that aired commercials, but those days are long gone. Now they are EXPERTS on all sorts of crazy as-seen-on-tv products like the the magnetic necklace clasp they really think I need. But of all the commercials, one has been the most talked about for months: Pancake Puffs. I have been called into the living room on numerous occasions to watch how cool and totally awesome this pan is. So when we were shopping at our local drug store the other day and I happened upon an offical pancake puff maker on clearance, I bought it.
The excitement in the check out line was amazing as was the volume level in the van on the ride home. I wish I could have recorded it. They told me EVERYTHING about it. It's great finger food, not just for breakfast - it makes a great snack and sidedish too, we can turn our favorite recipes into pancake puffs, cornbread puffs, blueberry muffin puffs, brownie puffs, powdered sugar puffs, pigs in a blanket puffs, it's a snap to clean up, it's non-stick, it comes with an injector to make pudding filled puffs, they even included a whole bag of 'flippin sticks' (aka wooden skewers) - and for 15 minutes they continued reciting the many wonders of the pancake puff pan.
So when we tried it out, did it live up to the hype? I think Gwen spoke for all of us when she said, "Pancake Puffs are THE BOMB of 2009!"
I think it's going to be a great year.
