Paul Frank Pancake Mix Delicious (And Yes: It has Some Bananas)

I'm weeks late on my post about the Natural Products Expo that happened at the Anaheim Convention Center, but I did want to mention the following since I had it for breakfast: pancake mix endorsed by OC's own Paul Frank.

The fashion maven announced his foray into the world of breakfast last year, but I never got around to trying it because I'm more of a French toast type of guy. But Frank did have a display at the Natural Products Expo (I'd provide a photo, but the damn iPhone wasn't focused that day), and I managed to score some later on.

The flavor after the jump!

Unsurprisingly, given Frank's most famous creation (Julius the Monkey) adorns the pancake mix, there is a heavy banana flavor with a nice cinnamon aftertaste. The end result is springy, fluffy, consistent--this is not a novelty gift ala any number of celebrity-released hot sauces but worthy of anyone's morning.

Daddy Cakes is the distributor, and good for them! We'll only fault Frank for not coming out with something more original--maybe Julius' take on Salvadoran-style fried plantains with beans and cream?
