Number Three Son was the first to ask.  “Have you heard of everything they are cooking in waffle irons?” “No,” says I.

Have you tried Briannas (it does not have an apostrophe on the bottle) Poppy Seed Dressing?  I did not know about this delicious dressing, and just in case you haven’t heard about it either, well….
