While some people might joke about what cannot be made in a waffle iron, National Waffle Day 2023 is the time to celebrate that tasty, crispy deliciousness. From the simple toaster variety to a freshly made one, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy a waffle at every meal.

Although the waffle might have been around for centuries, the food has been transformed into many ways. While some people might never stray from a little syrup, which pools in all those little squares, others prefer to over the top creations. From the brunch mainstay of chicken and waffles to well-stacked waffle desserts, culinary creativity is unlimited.

For some, the waffle is a breakfast delight when traveling. Hampton by Hilton has leveraged its waffles in the best way. Even if a Paris Hilton has given her spin on the breakfast favorite, many people choose the hotel brand for their stays because of the waffles. Although not every location has the infamous waffle lady from Jacksonville, anyone and everyone can create their ultimate waffle in the Hampton by Hilton kitchen.

Even if those waffle makers might look a little precarious, they are quite easy to use. Fill a cup, pour, and let the waffle iron do its magic. The fun comes once that cooking is done.

Beyond the syrup and butter, a variety of food choices can top that waffle. From fresh fruit and nuts to even eggs and bacon, breakfast becomes a form of personal expression. Grab a cup of coffee, milk, or juice and dig in.

And, sometimes Hampton by Hilton offers seasonal flavors on their breakfast menu. Everyone might be thinking about that PSL, but there could be some pumpkin waffles on the plate, too.

While those hot, fresh waffles can be a highlight of staying at a Hampton by Hilton, the fun and deliciousness does not have to end at check out. The Hampton Waffle Collection has a variety of waffle-inspired items for people to showcase their love of the food. Available while supplies last, the food fashion items include a waffle insulated fanny pack with built-in syrup holder.

And, since every great meal is more than just the moment around the table, Hampton by Hilton is donating $75,000 to World Central Kitchen. This amount, which includes proceeds from the Collection, will help fight food insecurity.
