11 Reasons Why Waffles Are The Superior Breakfast Food

Sorry, pancakes, but the syrup runs right off of you. That's barbaric.

1. Syrup pockets

There are literally compartments to hold in the syrup, so it doesn't run down the side, off the plate, onto the floor and onto your toes. Few things are worse than syrup in your toes.

2. Stackability

Waffle irons ensure that every golden square is roughly the same shape and size as the last. That means a tall, steady heap of near-symmetrical waffles every time. Last time I checked, pancakes don't offer that same guarantee.

I'm sorry, when's the last time two of the most powerful women in the world gabbed over a plate of flapjacks? Never? Right.

6. Top-tions (topping options)

The batter may be basically exactly the same, but something about waffles makes it so much easier to load 'em up with every other food ever.

7. Portion variability

Not that hungry? Too bad, you have to eat that whole pancake. But! You can only eat 3/4 of this conveniently sectioned waffle, if you'd like.

Yes, French toast has the whole French fry equivalent thing. But what do pancakes have? What's that? Nothing? Exactly.
