Potato waffles are a staple of any Irish household. Want some breakfast? Potato waffle. Want a snack? Potato waffle. Want to have a wholesome dinner? Potato waffle. Mammy too lazy to cook? Potato waffle.
Sadly those days could be over if the words of Birds Eye Australia are anything to go by: they have shared the news that potato waffles are discontinued. WTF WHY.
A young Irish man, nay, hero, named Brian Nooney petitioned for potato waffles to be sold in Australia a couple of years ago via a Facebook page but it seems that the dream was short-lived and the hole-some food will be no more.
Are you kidding me?!!
The Bring Birdseye Potato Waffles To Australia Facebook page admin Brian then broke the news to his loyal Irish friends:

Based on a typical Irish family's waffle eating habits, she'll run out next month. Dear lord have mercy.
Pray for our Irish brothers and sisters in Australia who are going through a true hardship.
