Waffle Facts for you:

Waffles have been around since the 14th Century and whilst they originated in France the word waffle originates from the Dutch Word ‘Wafer’.

The World largest ‘Waffle’ was made in 2013 in The Netherlands and had a diameter of 2.4 meters and weighed 50kg!

At the International Waffle eating competition (yes there is such a thing!!) the current champion ate 29 waffles in 10 minutes! Anyone fancy giving him a run for his money with our waffles…..?
