It's National Waffle Day❗

Pass the syrup! Today we celebrate an iconic and international treat. The Waffle!!!


According to nationaltoday.com, "the contemporary waffles we enjoy today hail from France and Belgium. Earlier versions of the waffle, made of grain flour and water, date back to Ancient Greece. At that time they made obelios, or flat cakes, cooked between hot metal plates. 


In the Middle ages wafers were made using round plates with images of Jesus, The Crucifixion, and other religious scenes and symbols. Through the centuries both the ingredients and cooking methods of waffle making evolved until finally landing on one of the dozens of common varieties we love today.


With so many varieties —  Belgium, Hong Kong, stroopwafels, galettes – to enjoy in countless ways from adding classic toppings like butter and syrup, fruit, and chocolate, to waffle sandwiches and hotdog buns, I know you can’t wait to eat them at every meal.


FUN FACTS:

📍81% of southerners say they love waffles, more than any other region in the U.S.

📍6 out of 10 Americans think chicken and waffles belong together."
