Eleven steals some Eggos

Eleven and her relationship with Eggos might be one of the most complicated, nuanced and important aspects of the whole show. Eleven does love her Eggos, even though she knows that they maybe aren’t the best for her. Eggos have been a hilarious calling card for fans who can now always associate the frozen breakfast food with their favorite Stranger Things character.

One of Eleven’s best scenes that has to do with her favorite frozen treat comes in the first season when she enters a grocery store, is accosted by the store manager (whom she not-so-lovingly calls a “mouth-breather”) and steals some Eggos.

It’s a great power moment for Eleven who, up to this point, was always controlled by those around her wherever she met them and was still on the run from her captors at the lab. Eleven never had anything for herself but knows she loves Eggos. When she sees them in the grocery store, she goes for them despite the store managers protests. This time she won’t let someone tell her “no” or control her.

Eleven steals her Eggos, walks out of the store, gets yelled at by the manager, and with a bit of a telekinetic push stops him in his tracks. Oh and she doesn’t even take one glance behind her as she confidently walks back onto the street while destroying the sliding glass doors of the store.

This is absolutely a fan-favorite moment, not only simply because of Eggos, but because it is just a small victory for Eleven in life where even small victories were hard for her to find. Way to go, Eleven. You deserve those Eggos.
