Kodiak Cakes Toaster Waffles and Enlightened Ice Cream—A combo so strong there is a national holiday for it!

Ice cream sandwich with Kodiak Cakes Toaster Waffles for National Waffle Day

It’s National Waffle Day, and if there’s anything we love more than pancakes at Kodiak Cakes, it’s waffles. To celebrate, we’ve partnered up with Enlightened ice cream to bring you five ridiculously delicious (and healthy) waffle & ice cream combos that you should definitely try at home. Keep reading to find out which one you’ll be treating yourself with this holiday.

Dark Chocolate Waffle & Sea Salt Caramel

Achieving the perfect balance between sweet and salty is no easy task, but this pairing hits the nail on the head. Our warm, Kodiak Cakes Dark Chocolate Waffle topped with a dollop of decadent Enlightened Sea Salt Caramel ice cream will have you smacking your lips together it’s that good. Bonus points for drizzling chocolate syrup on top!

Blueberry Waffle &
Cold Brew Coffee

These two may seem like an unlikely pair, but the phrase “opposites attract” could not be truer for our Kodiak Cakes Blueberry Toaster Waffles and Enlightened Cold Brew Coffee ice cream. This match-up is a one-stop breakfast creation—your daily cuppa joe and blueberry pastry all in one! The bitter taste of coffee in each serving of ice cream is the perfect complement to the sweet blueberries packed in our Blueberry Waffles. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Buttermilk & Vanilla Waffle & Brownies & Cookie Dough

The age-old debate of Vanilla vs. Chocolate ends here. You can actually have both flavor classics and eat them too by topping Enlightened Brownies & Cookie Dough ice cream over Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk & Vanilla Waffles. It seems only right to pair these two together. Plus, surprise brownie bits and cookie dough mix-ins will have you drooling for more.

Cinnamon Waffle &
Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich

Prepare your taste buds for a burst of flavor in this stacked ice-cream waffle sandwich. Our Kodiak Cakes Cinnamon Waffles offer the perfect kick to contrast the sweet taste of red velvet and cream cheese swirl in Enlightened Red Velvet ice cream. If you have a sweet tooth, and an appreciation for complex flavor profiles, this combo is for you!

Chocolate Chip Waffle
& Movie Night

“Life [is] like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Luckily, you know exactly what you’re gonna get when topping Enlightened Movie Night ice cream over one of Kodiak Cakes warm Chocolate Chip Waffles—a delectable flavor profile of buttered popcorn, caramel, and chocolate chips. This duo is the perfect treat for all audiences on “movie night.” As Forrest Gump would say, it’s “the only good thing about being wounded in the butt-ocks,” or something like that 😉

Now that all you can think about is waffles and ice-cream, we encourage you to try one, or all, of the creations above, or make one of your own. Tag us on Instagram with your celebratory waffles and ice cream at @eatenlightened and @kodiakcakes. Happy National Waffle Day!
