For most, Waterford is most famous for its crystal.  The crystal that is used for the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop in NYC!  That being said, I’ve been here for a few months now and I keep stumbling upon this baked good that everyone here seems to love. It looks like a powdered bun and it is literally everywhere!  Naturally, I had to try it and find out what the fuss was all about.

It is actually really good and perfect for a sandwich or even just by itself.  It is a novelty here in Waterford and rightfully so!  A few weeks ago I was riding my bike through the center of town and they were having a Blaa fight.  Yes, you heard me correctly…a Blaa fight!  I guess it is about the history of the Blaa, and people were all dressed up throwing the Blaa’s at each other.  I’m not 100% sure what the even was but it looked like a lot of fun when I passed by.  If you were walking through the throwing area you would have been caught in a flower storm.  I was literally choking on flower walking through town!  To say the people of Waterford love their Blaa is an understatement!  It looked like good fun even though everyone was covered in flower!

If you ever stumble upon some Blaa, I definitely suggest you try it!
