WHAT? No Blueberry Waffles at Waffle House?
“Dear Waffle House, For the Love of Every Hungry Traveler… BRING BACK THE BLUEBERRIES!” Any weary traveler knows… when your adventures lead you deep into the night, there is nothing more reassuring than those big, black and yellow, unmistakable letters acting as a beacon in the depth of your hunger. Waffle House has been filling the bellies of gazillions with an “unbeatable combination of good food with outstanding service since 1955,” and has become one of the most recognizable signs frequenting the sides of interstates around the country (especially the South). Waffle House is known for their American diner fare and all day breakfast (including their signature waffles), and with over 2100 locations, has become a literal cultural icon in many parts of the US. And, get this. It doesn’t matter what time it is; every Waffle House is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In our line of work, we call that a big traveler WIN!
That is, until last year. Sometime in early 2016, the chain removed blueberries and strawberries as optional toppings for your waffles. What?! Crazy, we know. As a chain known for their delectable waffles and toppings, taking these off the menu was a crime against loyal patrons who had grown to rely on this food source whenever the witching hour arrived and hunger struck. The classic fruit toppings have since been replaced with options like peanut butter, chocolate chip (ok, this is still classic), and pecan. But let’s be honest, none of these can stand up to good ol’ berry waffles.
So what now? Well, there have been a few petitions online, but none have gathered enough signatures to make a difference. We at YetiNotherAdventure want to be that change! Sign our petition to “Bring Back The Berries!” on change.org. Help us reach our goal and bring back the beacon of hope for those of us who live a life on the road!
