The day soon gained international recognition, with people across borders indulging in the pleasures of waffle making and eating, unified by their shared love for this versatile dish.

International Waffle Day encourages everyone to experiment with flavors and toppings, from the traditional syrup and berries to the more daring combinations of waffle sandwiches and waffle pizzas.
