Waffle House boycotts Belgian waffles to support U.S. soccer
In support of the U.S. Men’s National Team’s upcoming match against Belgium on Tuesday, the Waffle House restaurant chain has called for national support against the rival nation’s breakfast of choice: TMZ originally reported that Waffle house called for a boycott, and now the chain has begun to rally support on Twitter.
“We’re America’s place to eat, so of course we’re supporting Team USA,” a representative for the chain told EW.
Of course, Waffle House doesn’t feature Belgian waffles on its regular menu, serving up sweet-cream waffles instead. The American variety has a smaller grid pattern (due to a differently shaped waffle iron) and a creamier flavor, according to their rep.
Team USA faces off against Belgium at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow, giving you plenty of time to prep your very American, small-grid breakfast in the afternoon. And while no one’s come out and said it yet, some argue that French fries were invented in Belgium. So maybe it’s time for the freedom fry to return, too.
