FROM OUR FOUNDER
At Lopaus Point we make the most delicious waffles. My company is named after where I grew up on the coast of Maine. My most fond childhood memories are those spent with my mother, Eva, in our Lopaus Point kitchen. I recall picking wild blueberries in the summer, canning fresh garden vegetables for the long winter ahead and the smell of the salty ocean air on Lopaus Point. The name Lopaus Point is a tribute to the love we shared for one another and the joy that came from cooking together.
I am a food allergy parent and advocate. My son was diagnosed with special diet needs at a young age. Disappointed with the options that were available, I created our delicious and nutritious waffles in my home kitchen with ingredients you likely have in your own pantry. Since the beginning, our team has included differently abled people. We are partners with GoodWill Columbus to support our mission of being an engaged employer in our community.

SOME TOASTY DETAILS
Gluten free dedication
Our waffles are prepared in our dedicated gluten and peanut free facility. Our everyday line of waffles is certified gluten free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO). The GFCO requires we test for the presence of gluten at less than 10 PPM (parts per million) which is lower than the FDA standard of less than 20 PPM for gluten free. We take gluten free very seriously. Our everyday waffles are certified OU Kosher. Limited Batch flavors may not be labeled GFCO or Kosher due to their limited availability. All waffles are made using the same gluten free guidelines at all times.
Of the 9 major allergens, as defined by the FDA, our facility processes and our waffles contain 2 allergens: Egg and Almond (tree nut). Our founder’s family has been impacted by both food allergies and intolerances. We take both very seriously. If you have a question or concern regarding an ingredient or processing, please email us at email@example.com.
We are different!
Our waffles are handmade in small batches. For this reason, our shapes and sizes can vary slightly. We flash freeze our waffles shortly after being baked to lock in freshness and flavor. Lopaus Point waffles do not contain preservatives. Over an extended period of time in natural products, it is expected flavor may deteriorate. Your best taste experience will be prior to the best by date——if they even last nearly that long!
Ice happens (for a good reason)
Lopaus Point uses whole, organic fruit to lightly sweeten our waffles. Due to the higher moisture of whole fruit, ice will likely form, especially if there has been a slight temperature change. This will not affect the flavor or texture of your waffle after toasting. Other companies use either sugar or fruit juice concentrate (industry pretty word for sugar) to sweeten and therefore they have a drier waffle with less nutrition.
