1956, Eggo

(We’re sorry for the nightmare fuel.)

Did Ya Know?

What was Eggo’s original name?


a. Froffles

They were invented in 1953 by Frank Dorsa and called the fraken-word meaning “frozen waffles.” Eggo was a food company that sold condiments, potato chips, and frozen foods. The name “Froffles” never really caught on, but “Eggo waffles” was here to stay.
