Let’s start with something not too crazy.
Vegetables on your waffle might not be an entirely new concept for those who are looking for healthy alternatives. But vegetables IN your waffles can raise some eyebrows.
This waffle is made with batter that has an added fresh, healthy ingredient; shredded zucchini.
While this combo is quite unusual, it is good for you because it is doubly rich in fibre which aids digestion. Also, zucchini is rich in nutrients that can contribute to healthy vision and can lower your risk of age-related eye problems.
It is rich in vitamins A and C, and lutein, manganese, and zeaxanthin – not bad for a “weird” waffle.
And now, the crazy situation just went up a notch.
Chicken and waffles are a staple for many people.
Spicy chicken and waffles are something that adventurous foodies love.
But this is a monstrosity.
The Carolina Reaper is the hottest pepper in the world, measuring more than ONE MILLION Scoville units (the metric used for spiciness). And to put things into perspective, a Carolina Reaper is 100x hotter than a Jalapeño pepper.
When you pair your waffle with a chicken battered and dredged in Carolina Reaper-infused ingredients, you will have a treat straight out of Hell.
Some people claim to experience being high or drunk with this much spiciness while feeling the relentless and inescapable heat.
To put things in perspective, you can watch these two guys “enjoying” the painful pepper.

And now, for a real high – a, for real “dude” kind of high.
Marijuana today is being studied for its use in medicine, especially for dealing with stress, depression, and anxiety. But of course, it is verily and widely used across tolerant countries as a recreational substance.
Weed is known to give people a pleasant euphoric feeling and, of course, “the munchies.” So, for many people, there is nothing better than to combine the sticky icky with food.
Weed chefs extract Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD), the active ingredients in weed, from the plant’s oils and use them as ingredients for this stimulating waffle.
A few bites of this snack, and you’re in heaven.
Here’s something that will get the Italians swinging their gestures in a way that can be translated into machine gunfire.
Pineapple on pizza is a controversial topic. Simply go to YouTube, Quora, or Reddit to find warring comments about its legitimacy. Now, pizza waffles are another gear grinder for the traditionalists.
And then, you put them all together.
While many people will be offended by this combination, there’s also 50% of the population that will stand by this creation.
Some people find the sweetness of the pineapple complements the saltiness of the ham and cheese and love the bite of its waffle bed. But some spit curse words at the mere idea of it, like Gordon Ramsay.

Gourmet food in starred restaurants are on their own level of incredible, and it is not uncommon for chefs to make things extra fancy with luxurious edible ingredients. There are pasta, pizzas, cakes, and other dishes made extra decadent by adding toppings like truffles and, of course, gold.
And chicken and waffles are not safe from this trend.
For whatever it is worth, someone thought that it would be amazing to wrap the entire chicken skewer with edible gold leaf and serve it on a bed of waffles. Doing this turns your dollar waffle into a serving worth at least a hundred.
While the picture above doesn’t seem to show anything unusual, with just a stack of waffles with caramelised bananas as toppings, this waffle uses a sustainable ingredient.
For thousands of years, many cultures have considered insects as a standard part of their sustenance. And for almost a century now, the western world has opened the possibilities of using them for sustainable ingredients.
Yes, the title is not about the sport of cricket but rather the insect. These waffles are made with an additional protein – cricket powder.
Insects are a potent source of natural protein, and they are significantly sustainable and good for the environment to produce, unlike what we get from our current meat selections.
How about you? Are you looking forward to a future where eating insects will be normalised?
“The King of Fruits”, as known in southeast Asian countries, the Durian is a popular staple that divides people.
While using fruits as toppings or fillings with waffles is uncommon, the choice of fruit can be highly subjective, especially this one.
Durian is known for its significantly potent and disturbing odour – some say it smells like sewage or stinky foot cheese or worse. However, when you get over its stench, the taste and flavour are creamy and indulgent, which is why almost everyone in its countries of origin loves the fruit so much.
In fact, in 2019, the global durian fruit market size was estimated at USD 18.72 billion.
While durian and waffles are almost unheard of, maybe it has something to it, and you would only have to try to know why.
So that’s it for our top 7 list of the craziest waffles you can find on the internet.
