The Kellogg’s promotion for the Star Trek movie has been one of the longer running for the feature film with items starting to appear in stores in March and continuing to this summer. While the Kellogg’s website lists almost every product featuring ST09 images or offers, there have been a few surprises not listed, with the most recent being a limited series of Eggo waffles
Kellogg Update on Kellogg’s waffles
(as reported by Ensign Kellogg submitted to John Tenuto)
This is Lt. Kellogg from the USS Enterprise 1701 E once again reporting for TrekMovie on my assigned mission to find all the Kellogg’s Star Trek promotional products.
Kellogg’s Has One More Surprise: ST Waffles
TrekMovie has already reported on the offer for a Star Trek Warp Plate on nearly every variety of Eggo Waffles. However, those boxes feature Star Trek art yet regular waffles. Now, Kellogg’s has surprised fans with waffles that have edible images on them of Star Trek characters, planets, logos, phrases, and technology. There are more than 25 different waffles available with this limited edition item. The packaging shows the Enterprise and some of the waffles, and includes a Starfleet Delta Shield Game.
Limited Edition Star Trek Eggos box
Those familiar with my career in Starfleet know that this isn’t my first experience with Earth’s past as I helped defeat the Borg during the First Contact mission. However, it is the first time I have eaten waffles with images on them. Amazingly, they taste exactly the same as regular Eggo waffles with the bonus fun of the Star Trek images. As you eat your Nero waffle, say things like "I would rather suffer the loss of Romulus a thousand times than not eat my Eggo Waffles!" I purchased 6 boxes of Star Trek Waffles and got 22 of the "more than 25" different designs (there are 8 waffles a box). For those desiring a checklist, here are the confirmed waffles.
Nero the waffle
Character Waffles: Kirk, Spock, Kirk & Spock, Kirk sitting in his Captain’s Chair, McCoy, Sulu, Nero, Uhura, Chekov, and Scotty
Kirk and Spock on a waffle!
Logo Waffles: Delta Shield, Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan Greeting
Technology Waffles: Communicator, others?
Toast me up scotty
Planet Waffles: Earth, Saturn with moon Titan, others?
Leggo my planet
Phrases Waffles: Live Long and Prosper, I’m Giving Her All She’s Got Captain!, Beam Me Up, Highly Illogical
Life long and Waffle
BY THEM…FREEZE THEM FOR 20 YEARS…THEN SELL THEM ON EBAY FOR $100 EACH!!!
FIRST! Yeah baby.
We have had no Star Trek tie-ins outside the US, quite a shame.
Is it April 1 already?
Seriously — I’d have trouble leggin’ go of these waffles; I’d rather frame them!
I tried these out last week, they don’t taste as good as the regular waffles, I guess whatever they use to print the pictures isn’t super delicious, but who cares when you get to eat Captain Kirk waffles! I wrote a blog about it: http://jeffowick.blogspot.com/2009/05/pick-me-up.html
Spock looks like he is wearing a yarmuke!.. I guess Adam Sandler was right Capt Kirk and Mr Spock are Jewish!!
What’s next, Klingon toilet paper?
Sucks – I sent away for one of the T-shirts, and they’re only available in the states.
My girlfriend just said, “They should make one with a whole in the center and call it [insert name of planet that meets terrible fate in STXI here].”
#7 If you try real hard, you can make your own Horta on plain toilet paper while using the toilet.
Okay…I think they are starting to go overboard with the tie-ins…
Tie-ins are a necessary component for generating income for the franchise.I hope they get as good at it as the starwars franchise,so we can have more JJTrek on the big screen.More models & action figures & glasses please, if that gets us more Trek on the big screen.
I bought a box like three weeks ago and have yet to open them up.
That Earth picture…
Apparently global warming has had a major impact by the 23rd century. South America is substantially narrowed; it no longer connects with Central America; and the U.S. southeast, most of Canada, and all of Europe appear to be completely under water!
All I want to know is WHY they didn’t make one with Uhura on it? THAT would have been hot ‘n tasty!!!!! With butter and syrup drizzled all over it and licked off… uh, sorry, got carried away!
OK, I just re-read it they they DO have her, just not pictured here. I’ll be buying them! Then I’ll be in my room…. enjoying my breakfast.
lol i picked some up Thursday….
Awesome!! I soooo have to get some of these…
These waffles are going to be worth heaps in the future; just make sure to keep them in their original packaging.
I guess they can’t be accused of Waffling on Product tie-ins
We got a box of Eggo Waffles a few years back that I swear had the image of The Virgin Mother Mary on them.
Everyone thought I was making it up until the letter from Kellog’s arrived. Turns out the box was part of a shipment destined for Mexico.
21- Now wouldn’t it be funny if someone found a Star Trek waffle where either Uhura was the Virgin Mary, or Kirk was Jesus (well neither being too terribly recognizable as the dieties like most food “signtings”).
They shall call him Kirkus!
Why are Kirk and Spock wearing beanie hats? They don’t wear hats ever in the movie or series.
Actually, I do like Eggo waffles and will probably buy these when I see them.
The most bizzare item since the DS9 yo-yo.
Egypt: the pyramids. Greece: The Parthenon. Rome: The Coliseum, China: The Great Wall. Peru: The Incan ruins. And five thousand years from now? U.S.A.: a petrified Star Trek eggo waffle. There is a point where this market b.s. gets truly ridiculous.
Based on the Nero and Kirk/Spock examples, apparently the ability to center images on waffles is just beyond the reach of our 21st century technology.
The print quality is low — I guess high-resolution breakfast food imagery just isn’t there yet. :-)
Sulu seems dubious about them: http://heroeswiki.com/Image:Mmm_waffles.jpg
I gotta get me some of these. Hope my local stores have them. I still haven’t been able to find the Star Trek cereal. Anywhere. :(
Advertisements… on food.
None on eBay…yet.
Maybe a dumb question, but is there any way to “save” these or preserve them somehow without leaving them in your freezer? I would like to collect and display them, as weird as that may sound.
Here in the UK all I could find was the burger king promos toys with kids meals!
You could contact Kellogg’s and ask perhaps?
I may not have a taste for Kirk n Spock waffles, but I know a few ladies in these threads who’d like to pour maple syrup over Zach Quinto and Chris Pine.
Hey… leggo my Spocko!
I want an Enterprise waffle!
#7 – Hahaha! :D
These things probably require no preservation techniques, but I suppose you could freeze-dry some and have them framed….Or get some of that clear craft resin sold at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc. and encase them in that stuff…
On the subject of Star Trek edibles, I still have a ST First Contact Beverly Crusher chocolate candy bar in my freezer. A friend gave it to me a while after the movie was released, and I didn’t want to eat it so stuck it in the freezer. It’s survived intact since then, even after moving to a new house!
Does the Nero one look as if he could be a rap star? The pose and the look suggest he’s about to bust some rhymes about some Romulan ho’s…or about some fly-by’s with his sawed-off disruptor in the quadrant-hood. He just needs a big Romulan medallion hanging around his neck.
Anyway, just don’t fiddle around and leave Nero in the toaster too long or the Romulan will burn…
Trek waffles, not canon!! Hahaha
The have the res of a newspaper comic strip.
The “Kirk and Spock on a Waffle” looks some fanfic K/S covers from the ’70s, LOL.
Oh my god…….
I want this.
Maybe I’m just old, but…huh?
They’re probably not aiming for my demographic. Just a wild guess.
The “badge hunt” on the side of the box is kind of cute, though. I like the “on/off’ symbol on one of them. It almost fits.
On a different rant, why don’t they go back to the original emblems inside the arrowheads? The science division was represented by two circles made to represent planets, either intersecting or orbiting one another. The services division (engineering, security, comms, etc.) was a curved lightning bolt, meant to symbolize man’s conquest of technology. The new emblems don’t appear to mean a thing. (The services emblem looks kind of like an old logo from some Channel 9 long, long ago.)
At least they got the star on the command emblem right….
I saw the face of Jesus on a waffle once. I ate it anyway.
Star Trek waffles; just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder.
7 – I’d need that paper if I ate one of those things. All that food coloring would give me the warps.
46 – People eat Him in church every week.
I have a bunch of these, including the alien from the Kelvin bridge, and the Kelvin. John, do you plan to try to preserve the waffles themselves for posterity? If so, how?
No thanks, don’t wanna eat the Trek pictures.
One site suggests preserving bread/pastry artwork by letting them go stale, then applying clear varnish.
I found these at a super Walmart. I never found the Star Trek cereal, just the regular brands with the Trek promotions on them.
When does the toilet paper come out??
