Experience the Artisan Waffle

lewaf.pngEuro Snack was created in 1997 in Monterey, California, where they started selling Belgian Waffles out of a push cart at the local Farmer's Market; the success was immediate.   

The secret is the European pearl sugar folded into the dough that gives an unbelievable caramelized flavor. During the baking process, this speical sugar gives their authentic Belgian waffle its unique caramelized and crunchy taste. Eat on-the-go or serve with toppings, Euro Snakc's 'Le Waf' is available in dry mix, frozen dough, and baked waffles (bulk or individually wrapped).

Euro Snack is a proud sponsor of the Food Integration Lab and can also be found at Coffee Fest Chicago at Table Top #16. Don't miss the ultimate waffle experience!
