Waffle Around

Look what I found at the local supermarket:

Maybe these little packaged Belgian waffles are nothing new to you, but today was the first time I came across them out here on the west coast.  And any time I spot Belgium's black, yellow, and red flag it catches my eye, because it's a very rare sighting, so of course I bought some.  The taste was okay, just a little sweeter than an Eggo Waffle, but the idea was to bring back memories of the freshly baked, lightly browned, golden waffles we had in Antwerp, Belgium, last summer.

The ravishing waffles above, just out of the oven, were in a bakery we passed while walking near the Groenplaats city square.  They're street waffles, just a little snack you pick up while shopping or strolling, like an ice cream cone or a hot dog.  And you don't need syrup, because they are absolutely, deliciously tasty just by themselves.  Take a look at the waffle my daughter is holding below:

It's dipped in chocolate.  Can I just say it was to die for?  Oh em gee.  


  1. One of my favorite things to tell people is that I have enjoyed a Belgian waffle in Belgium--piled high with the FRESHEST strawberries ever and a mountain of real whipped cream.
    My mouth is watering just thinking of it!!

  2. This looks delicious and now I'm hungry lol!

  5. Wow, that chocolate dipped waffle looks wonderful! I can't wait to check out more of your blog. Thank you for visiting my blog through Tiggerific Tuesday! I'm following back. :)

  6. Dear Sonja, what an absolutely delightful blog - I love the theme! Of course being European I feel flattered that you love Europe enough to dedicate a blog to travels through it.;) With kids.;)
    I too love Belgian waffles, but never been "realy" visiting Belgium, only driven through it.;)
    Thank you so very much for your recent visit and such kind words, I am so glad you enjoy my writing. Please do come back again.;)
    Have a lovely rest of the week and nice to meet you,

  7. I don't know what's more deliciously sinful, Belgian waffles or Belgian frites. Maybe I should go again soon to make a final decision. :-)

  8. Oh my goodness my mouth is watering just thinking about Belgian waffles. The first time I had one was in Brugges and we asked for syrup. We didn't realize that you hold them in your hand and walk around eating them as street food. =) I have never found anything else that comes close to the real thing. Though later that year in Amsterdam I had a delicious Belgian waffle from a vending machine! (Can't find anything like that here in the states, though.)

  9. You know you're in Belgium when you can smell the waffle booths everywhere :)
