The Creators Of Montreal's New Penis-Shaped Waffles Told Us Why TF They Decided To Do This

The ultimate solution to your bachelorette party — or just day-to-day — snack game has made its way to Montreal in the form of Zizi Pop MTL's penis-shaped waffles.

MTL Blog spoke to Alix Andreani, communications officer for Zizi Pop, to ask a few key questions, including... why?

Andreani said the idea for Zizi Pop came from similar concepts around the world — and since penis-shaped waffles can't be found anywhere else in Quebec, owner Salvatore Armonia decided to share the experience with Montrealers. 

The waffles can be eaten sweet or savoury whether coated with Belgian chocolate and gourmet toppings or as a pseudo-escape to Mexico with a salted waffle and guacamole.

Zizi Pop settled exclusively on penis-shaped treats as a symbolic gesture of solidarity with the LGBTQ2+ community so that no matter your sexuality or gender, you can eat a penis, Andreani said.

"In order to represent women in our adventure, we created the Bubble Lemonade, whose recipes contain Tapioca 'pearls,'" Adreanni told MTL Blog.
