Make the best pumpkin pancakes by using Hungry Jack pancake mix

See also

We were recently asked to sample a few Hungry Jack products. Since our family uses many of their products, we were excited to see what they sent our way.

The first item we had a chance to try was their Hungry Jack Pumpkin Spice pancake mix. We make pumpkin pancakes from scratch all the time. While they are good, they can be heavy. After following the mix instructions which were 'just add water', we heated up a griddle and added the batter. We love pecans in pumpkin pancakes, so we added some to the mix.

The pancakes baked up beautifully. When they were done, we added butter and some syrup which just happened to be Hungry Jack brand, too. The pancakes were light and fluffy. They were definitely much better than many of the other pumpkin spice products that have been released this year. The pumpkin and spice flavors were delicious and didn't have that 'fake' taste so many products have. After trying them, my family asked for more. That is always a good sign.

Hungry Jack created this as a seasonal offering so be sure to get to your grocery store soon while they are still available. Hungry Jack products are sold in Fry's, Albertsons and Safeway which are all found in Mesa.

We have other products to try and will let you know how we like them once we have tried them.
