2 pancake mixes from Costco

I didn’t know which pancake mix to purchase, so I got them both. But I had a higher expectation on the expensive yet smaller pancake mix by Coach’s Oats. Per pound, the MultiGrain Pancake Mix was 4 times more expensive than Buttermilk.

Krusteaz Buttermilk (cheaper, bigger one) has a classic pancake house taste. This is a solid, good pancake mix.

Coach’s Multigrain Pancake mix is different. You may find this too fancy for your taste. I can tell this pancake mix is a high class with a lot of grain. It’s grainy and breaks down easily. This doesn’t have that classic taste. It’s a very good pancake mix.  It’s richer and fancier compared to Buttermilk. But if you crave that classic pancake-house taste, this is not for you. 

Personally, I am happy I got them both. My next purchase will be the Krusteaz. I like the price, taste, and that it doesn’t require an egg to prepare.
