Review: Six salad-plate-sized pancakes that cost about 50 cents apiece seem like a bargain to me on busy school mornings. Of course, with a 4-year-old, I can stretch the pancakes to last for nearly six breakfasts. But even if this container of pancakes lasted for just one meal, I'd be pleased. On an especially hectic morning, I'm not sure you can put a price on flavor and convenience. The buttermilk pancakes tasted fresh (they're packaged in plastic pouches to keep them that way). And they were piping hot and ready for syrup after just 30 seconds in the microwave. Find Mama Mary's pancakes in the refrigerator case.
