Everything You Wanted To Know About Waffles (But Were Afraid to Ask)


The Waffle That Unites Us All is sure to catch on.  It is the symbol of our discontent.  Puck Daddy just wrote about it and it just appeared on Deadspin.  This thing has gone well beyond the Barilkosphere and I'll be thoroughly disappointed if I don't see a few waffles tonight against the Habs.


If you're going to the game tonight, please... bring waffles.  We need this.  We need something... anything.  Waffles are perfect.


But really, what do we know about our new tasty hope?  From Wikipedia, here's everything you wanted to know about the waffle (but were afraid to ask).

A waffle is a batter- or dough-based cake cooked in a waffle iron patterned to give a distinctive and characteristic shape. There are many variations based on the type and shape of the iron and the recipe used.
Other waffle-shaped foods exist, and are sometimes referred to as waffles because of their shape. Most are actually potato products.
Eggo Waffles
Waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium and the United States. Common toppings are strawberries, chocolate, sugar, honey, syrups, ice cream and more. Waffles can be desserts and breakfasts.
Waffles are also traditionally thrown at Toronto Maple Leafs home games by fans fed up with 43 years without a Stanley Cup.  This tradition began following a loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on December 9, 2010.

Ladies and gentlemen, pelt the ACC ice with waffles!!!
