Story

Belgium Liege waffles are a traditional street food that's typically eaten with your hand. When waffles were first created, they didn't have those square patterns we're all familiar with, instead they had honeycomb patterns; hence the name Sweet COMBforts. The team behind Sweet Combforts has created a way for foodies to enjoy liege waffles without getting their hands messy โ€“ they made waffle pops. What makes Sweet Combforts' waffles so special though is their use of pearl sugars, which gives a nice caramelized texture that is unlike anything else. Their use of premium toppings help make these pops an eye-catching dessert. Debuting at Coachella Arts & Music Festival in 2017, the dessert concept has gained tons of momentum towards their grand opening at TRADE Food Hall in Irvine, CA. Overall, this culinary team's goal is to make everyone's liege waffle experience a delicious and memorable one.
