There’s no limit to the number of ways you can tell the world about your fandom, from writing fan fiction to getting a tattoo. But perhaps one of the strangest ways to show your love, albeit one of the most rewarding, is by making fandom-inspired waffles. And luckily for those who have always wondered what it would be like to eat a waffle in the shape of their favorite character, it’s not as challenging as it sounds. There are dozens of novelty waffle irons celebrating nearly every fandom that will let you live that dream. Besides, the only thing that tastes better than a round Belgian waffle is an anthropomorphized Belgian-style waffle, especially when it comes in the shape something adorable that you love. Plus, a cute waffle can make for a great Instagram post—always a bonus when it comes to brunch.

It’s time to up your waffle game and celebrate your fandom in ways you didn’t even know were possible. Even though they feature cartoon characters and superheros, from Hello Kitty to the Hulk, at the end of the day, these thirteen novelty waffle irons are for serious fans only.
