Made in Boulder, Colorado, these plant-based waffles are an energy bar alternative, great for snacking in-between meals, after a workout, mid-trail or mid-ride. The modern take on a centuries-old tradition uses a brioche-based dough that cold-ferments overnight. It's then infused with pearl sugar imported from Belgium and finished in an authentic Liège waffle iron. They're best toasted in a conventional toaster, and you should never microwave them. If you're taking them on the go or you're just short on time, let them thaw for a few hours and enjoy at room temperature. They arrive partially frozen in environmentally friendly, compostable packaging and should be thrown in the freezer immediately. Available in original and gluten-free varieties.
