We are love with a new food trend we’ve been seeing popping up ALL over Instagram and Pinterest, the WAFFLE POP! This confection is a delightful combo of freshly made waffles topped, drizzled and sprinkled with all kinds of sweet shenanigans perched atop a popsicle stick or skewer. It’s portable, festive, fully customizable and perfect for a wedding reception treat. And, best of all, no sticky fingers!
Sweet Combforts (aka Home of the Waffle Pop) in Irvine, CA is credited with inventing this fabulous festival food! We just adore the fact that the co-owners both used to work at Waffle House. They SERIOUSLY upped their waffle game for sure with their riff on crispy, soft Belgian Waffles topped with sooooooo much goodness. With a debut at Coachella, Sweet Combforts has made legions of obsessed fans with these indulgent street food treats. Each and every one is dipped in cookie butter, dusted with powdered sugar and/or cocoa powder, and adorned with awesome toppings. #numnumnum
Move politely to the side Cake Pops, cuz the Waffle Pop is takin’ over! With more flat square footage of topping access, the waffle pop also affords nice indented valleys to fill with decadence. And, I’ve never seen a Cake Pop in a Crazy-Amazing Shake. #BuhByeCakePop
We like that you can fashion your waffle pops out of different shapes as well. Bitty triangles, classic circles, or even sweet, small heart-shaped waffles would work so very well at your dessert station. #Options
Heck, a quick Google search even revealed a Texas Shaped Waffle Iron.
And you can top them with literally ANYTHING from nuts, dried fruit, crushed candies, cereal, marshmallows, sprinkles to coconut shreds. While the waffles are super delish as is (mainly due to the fact that they are made with pearl sugar, which, according to Geoff Manila, the co-founder of Sweet Combforts, is like “regular sugar on steroids”), it is what SURROUNDS them that has everyone obsessed!
Watch two adorable Vloggers, Kelsey and Annie, taste test their first Waffle Pops:
Here’s a look at Sweet Combforts Menu Board. What sounds good to you? A Strawberry Babe featuring Cream Cheese Frosting, Graham Crackers, Strawberries and Cream Cheese Drizzle? Perhaps you prefer to dream of cookies, specifically Oreo Cookie Butter, Oreos, and White Choco Drizzle? We will be having the Churro Crunch, consisting of Cinnamon Sugar, Cinnamon Toast Crunch plus Cream Cheese Drizzle. #OneofEachPlease
Show your family and friends a good time with a party on a stick in the form of Waffle Pops. Sweet, portable, memorable and fun…What a wonderful option for your guests on your wedding day. I can just imagine good ole’ Uncle Bob reminiscing to Aunt Laura about the reception now, “Honey, weren’t those waffle thingies on a stick good?” #Memories
