Wafles and Dinges will offer free waffles on Monday, National Waffle Day
Publish date:

Like Tina Fey says in this 2016 American Express commercial, there will truly be "dinges for everyone" Monday at the Mall of America when the New York City-based business Wafles and Dinges celebrates its first out-of-state location.

In commemoration of National Waffle Day, they'll be serving up free Liege-style Belgian waffles from 12:30 to 2 p.m. 

The company announced it had chosen the Mall of America as its first location outside of the Big Apple in 2019. The store recently opened on level 3 in the west side of the mall. 

In a press release, company founder Thomas DeGeest, who is originally from the Belgian village of Bierbeek, describes his waffles thus: "It’s packed with sugar pearls, imported and made from Belgian beets, that burst into irresistible caramelized flavors and a subtle touch of vanilla aromas." 

Guests can choose from "dinges," AKA toppings, including: strawberries, Belgian chocolate fudge, maple syrup, whipped cream or spekuloos, which is a Belgian gingerbread cookie butter. 

Wafles & Dinges has been named "Best Belgian Waffle" in New York City, and holds a Vendy Award for "Best Mobile Dessert Vendor." It's been featured in television shows including TLCL's "Most Fantastic Trucks in America."
