It’s National Waffle Day! Do You Prefer Waffles, Pancakes, or French Toast?

It’s National Waffle Day!  So here’s a question, What do you like best?  Waffles, pancakes, or French toast?

A recent poll asked 45,000 people to name their favorite breakfast food.  But they only gave five options:  Pancakes, waffles, French toast, eggs, or something else.  Here’s how people answered:

1.  Eggs got 43% of the vote.

2.  Pancakes, 18%.

3.  French toast, 16%.

4.  Waffles, only 13%.  So they’re the LEAST popular of the three.

5.  “Other.”  So things like bacon, sausage, and toast.

Even though waffles didn’t rank that high, most of us DO enjoy them.  Another recent survey found 76% of us like waffles.  That includes 80% of women and 69% of men.  Southerners and people over 65 love them the most.

(By the way, Eggo is giving away limited-edition boxes of vegetarian “Chik’n” and waffles for National Waffle Day.  You can enter to win at
