Food at the Fairs - Part 2
If you talk about food and the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair you can only come to one conclusion. The math is easy:
1964 World's Fair + Food = Bel-Gem Waffles
The waffles were unquestionably the food hit of the Fair. Belgium waffles had been seen earlier at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, but these were a lighter mixture that just were wonderful. As soon as word got out about them lines started forming at the first shops to carry them, like this one. Soon, it seemed that just about every place selling something to eat was also selling Belgium waffles.
Tomorrow we'll see why.
