My Saturday mornings always consist of the same routine: Sleep in, pour myself a cup of French press, and make pancakes. Pancakes on a Saturday morning was a tradition in my house growing up, and I honestly have a hard time picturing my weekends starting any other way. However, while it is delightful to make pancakes from scratch, I do find myself reaching for those easy-to-make pancake or waffle mixes you see in stores, especially if they come in different fun flavors. So you can only imagine my excitement when I found out that Trader Joe’s is now selling a Strawberries & Crème Pancake & Waffle Mix to kick off summer at just $3.99 a box.

This Strawberries & Crème Pancake & Waffle Mix makes it easy to whip up a tasty breakfast to serve with all of your freshly picked strawberries this summer. The mix is made with sweetened dried strawberries and white chocolate chips to give it that mix of tangy, creamy flavor. Buttermilk powder is added to make those pancakes and waffles extra fluffy. Vegetable juices are used to give this mix that aesthetically pleasing hint of pink. To whip up this breakfast, all shoppers have to do is add milk, eggs, and oil to this mix, then flip or fry away. Each box will make up to 7 servings, or 14 pancakes with a 4-inch diameter.

While these pancakes would already be tasty with the classic toppings of butter and maple syrup, you can serve a number of other delectable dishes with this mix. Keep it on theme with billowing homemade whipped cream and either fresh or canned strawberries. Trader Joe’s says a waffle sandwich with fried chicken is also particularly delicious with this mix.

Shoppers are already looking forward to stocking their pantries with this new delectable breakfast item. “NEED that waffle mix,” writes one shopper on @traderjoesobsessed’s latest Instagram post. “Oh my gosh yum!” writes another.

Be sure to stock up, though; Trader Joe’s is only offering this Strawberries & Crème Pancake & Waffle Mix for a limited time.
