    I would not buy these becasue they are expensive.  I think I saw them for like 5 bucks.  You can make up a homemade batch of pancakes in about 10 minutes for what about a $1.50.  Anyways, they were giving samples of them out at the Ohio State fair last year and honestly, they weren't that bad.

      I saw these at Costco and bought a can for my grandson - - he is 10 and is a great breakfast 'cooker'.....  He had fun with this, but, even he said that scratch pancakes are easier and better....

        LOL.are these made in the USA?  There are some things that are just too easy to make at home (even if you do use Aunt Jemmima or Bisquick), than to fork over good money for that.

        Now, for funnel cakes, they may have a purpose!.....LOL

          I had extra $ one week and bought it (about $5.00) for fun.
          We did not like the taste, they are like whole wheat and the can didn't work like we thought they would.

            Can you BLAST the batter right into your mouth like whipped cream?

                Just about the stupidest thing I have ever seen. It's not like we have unlimited

                 space in our land fills for frivolous crap like this. The shaker pancakes

                packaged in the plastic jug is likewise stupid. How lazy do the American

                people have to be where they don't have time to put a few ingredients into

                bowl and mix? I personally buy pancake mix in bulk from a warehouse

                store. I can get about 200 cakes out of the package and there is not much

                packaging to be thrown away. Just a plastic zip bag that can be recycled.

                Just my humble opinion.

                  What an... interesting? idea. I just don't understand some of these so-called convenience foods. Speaking of odd foods in a can, I just ran across a link to a WHOLE chicken in a can (yes, like a rotisserie chicken, covered in some sort of broth, stuffed into a large can). Here's a link if anyone wants to check it out:

                  http://ihatemymessageboard.com/2009/04/23/a-whole-chicken-in-a-can/

                  Why would you need pancakes or a chicken in a can? Why do people assume that canned food is easier to make than the real thing?

                    When I lived in Alabama all of the local grocery stores sold "fresh" (not frozen) pre-made pancakes in a bucket, ready for reheating in a pan. I guess it's convenient for some people, but there's nothing like pancakes made from scratch, and it doesn't take much time at all.

                        Okay, I confess i fell for this product partly because it said organic and quite frankly I don't always feel like making pancakes when my daughter requests them.  I will try almost anything once.  Not for me they weren't like pancakes at all.  they were thin and nasty.  Filed under Live and Learn.  point taken from the poster that realized the environmental impact with me all excited about the organic aspect and all.

                          These were pretty nasty tasting.  Had a sour flavor, burned easily were hard to flip and the texture was all wrong.

                          I give them a big Thumbs Down!

                             I agree with others on the taste and the burn factor. Just not right.

                              How about the Bisquick pancakes in a bottle? You just add water and pour onto a griddle. I just saw the commercial the other day. Has anyone tried this product?

                              Oh, and I see the Flag Fairy struck this thread, too.

                                 I'm pretty sure the one in the plastic bottle is more like a pancake should be. The canned stuff is horrible!

                                  Who is the anonymous fool who keeps on flagging entries like this---please come out from under your rock and explain how pancakes---in whatever media do not belong in the breakfast forum.

                                        I love pancakes, but I sure wouldn't try a ridiculous product like this.

                                            Michael,

                                            I've tried the pancake mixes in the bottle several years ago when I was working third shift and would use those for a quick breakfast for the kids on the weekends.  They weren't too bad, but nothing like good homemade buttemrilk pancakes that I make now!!!  Oh, and those pancake batter cans....NO WAY!!  Haven't tried them and never will!!!
