Wafels and DingesPosted: May 20, 2011
Yesterday my coworkers and I were treated to free waffles all day from the Wafels and Dinges truck in honor of our store’s 5-year anniversary. The truck boasts delicious Belgian waffles and a variety of dinges (pronounced DING-guess), or toppings, that include everything from strawberries and bananas to ice cream and Speculoos, a graham-cracker cookie spread made from a popular brand of Belgian cookies (which are also called Speculoos). The company actually has a small fleet of trucks that are parked in various spots around the city that change each day – check their website for daily locations or visit their permanent Central Park location outside the entrance of the zoo.
I opted for a waffle with Speculoos spread and whipped cream. I forgot to take a picture until I was half done eating it, which is not shocking at all seeing as I wolfed it down in about .5 seconds. The Speculoos was sweet, delicious, and reminiscent of a box of Teddy Grahams mashed up into a gooey paste that evokes memories of childhood delight – and perfectly complements a hot, toasty waffle.
