Why are crepes not as popular as pancakes and waffles?

When you think of breakfast foods, some of the first things you might think of are pancakes and waffles. They are some of the staples at least when it comes to American breakfast foods. But what about crepes? They are also available but seem to be lesser known and just not nearly as common.

For a long time I never really gave them a chance, but recently I tried them out at one of my favorite breakfast places, and they are really good! I would say I like them a lot more than pancakes and waffles now. The taste and texture is just better compared to the other common alternatives. This got me thinking, why are crepes not more popular?

I went looking for some frozen crepes in store and they are very hard to find. There are are dozens of options when it comes to pancakes and waffles, but where are the crepes? I did manage to find 1 brand called Belgian Boys with one offering of frozen plain crepes. They were a little pricey, but they were on sale so I decided to try them out.

I did not expect much but surprisingly they were very good! You just have to microwave them for about a minute and they are ready to ego. They are certainly better than any frozen waffle or pancake I have tried. I would buy them again if I see them on sale.

If you are not familiar with crepes, I recommend trying them out next time you go out for breakfast. If you are able to find the frozen crepes in store, I also recommend them as well.

As for the answer to the original question, I'm not sure exactly why crepes are not as popular as pancakes and waffles, because I think they should be just as popular if not more! Maybe they are just not as well known since pancakes and waffles tend to dominate the menus and the store shelves. I think if more people give them a chance, they could catch on in a big way!
