10 Tweets That Perfectly Capture Our Feelings About Eggo Waffles in Netflix’s “Stranger Things”
This month Netflix released hit TV series Stranger Things, a love letter to the ’80s that reads as a cross between The Goonies and E.T. While the heroes of the show might seem like Mike and his group of friends, or El and her superpowers, or Winona Ryder playing a mom (yes, she’s brilliant), the true unsung hero is actually a box of Eggo Waffles.
If you haven’t had Eggo Waffles ever (or in a very long time), let me refresh your memory: It’s a breakfast item that looks and tastes like a thin, round waffle. This popular breakfast item of the ’80s and ’90s makes a few key appearances in the show that can’t be underestimated. Twitter understands this fact.
