It’s National Waffle Day and we are hoping that you have been in the gym all week and have saved your cheat meal for a syrupy treat. When it comes to waffles, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t enjoy them. In fact, 8 in 10 Americans love waffles. With today being National Waffle Day, we thought it would be cool to look at the numbers and see just how people really feel about waffles. Luckily for us, we didn’t have to do the work. NationalToday.com actually did a survey on Waffle Day. Here are some of the findings. Grab your fork, dig in, and read up.
To conduct the NationalToday.com National Waffle Day Survey, the researchers at National Today asked 2,000 Americans about their waffle-eating habits.

80% of women like waffles, while only 69% of men say the same.
AS INCOME RISES, WAFFLE LOVE FALLS
Of people who earn $0 – $25,000 per year, 78% like waffles. Of those who earn $50,000 – $75,000, 73% like waffles—and of those who earn over $100,000, only 70% like waffles. Seems like the taste of the rich and famous isn’t that refined after all.
