Valleyfair is excited to announce that Nordic Waffles is joining the 2018 dining experience. Nordic Waffles will be moving into the building previously occupied by Rita’s Ice near the entrance to Soak City Waterpark.

Nordic Waffles approached Valleyfair in February of 2017 about an initial partnership. “They served our whole staff and I was just blown away,” Executive Chef, Luis Carrillo, said, “It is a unique concept that our guest will enjoy.”

Nordic Waffles’ thinner, sweeter waffle is one of their main distinguishing factors. Different from the large fluffy waffles you will find at breakfast chains, Nordic Waffles’ waffles are more like a crèpe than a typical waffle.

In Scandinavia, locals do not top their waffles with butter and syrup but stuff them with savory toppings such as cheeses, meats, and vegetables. “With the large Scandinavian and Norwegian influence that Minnesota has, it was a no-brainer to bring this unique food experience to Valleyfair,” Luis said.

Unique waffles that will be available at Valleyfair for the 2018 season include an All Day Breakfast Waffle, filled with eggs, bacon, and cheese, a Turkey Chipotle Waffle, and a Cinnamon Sugar Waffle.

Nordic Waffles partnered with Valleyfair for special events in 2017 such was Food Truck Fest and ValleySCARE. “People were shocked at how distinctive and delicious these waffles are,” Luis said, “We’ve tested this product and our guests loved it.”

Luis’ favorite Nordic Waffle is the Salmon Waffle which is filled with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and green onions.

Nordic Waffles originated in Oslo, Norway by entrepreneur Stine Aasland. She had spent her spare time creating the ever so popular concept of the Nordic Waffle, a simple and fresh fill up that used organic ingredients. The immense success of Aasland’s unique concept in Norway led her to journey overseas and establish her new product here in the United States.

We’re looking forward to a sweet and savory 2018.
