Waffles are so beloved in this world that the Belgians have basically claimed them for their own. Pancakes must be mad jealous. And because tomorrow is National Waffle Day, we're not just going to press some batter in our waffle iron and call it a day -- we're seeking out these wonderfully weird variations.
Trust us: once you've had waffle nachos, you'll never go back to regular ones.
These so-called wafflers are stashing cheesecake filling and berries in the middle, and chopped nuts and melted chocolate on top. They're also fresh outta the freezer, because, much like Snickers, these suckers are better frozen.
Continuing the important work started by Popeye's, the reliably great Host the Toast made these nugs with waffle batter, and dipped them all in a maple honey sauce. Great news for everyone... although we're not sure why Heinz is ignoring our requests for a mass-market version of that crucial condiment.
What do you do when you've got Eggo Minis, Reese's peanut butter cups, chocolate, ice cream, and an endless imagination on your hands? You craft this ice cream sandwich, which might've just edged out the Choco Taco as our go-to frozen treat.
