Are waffles supposed to be a little bit chewy, or not really?

I've been thinking of buying a waffle maker - but this is based on the frozen waffles my Mum used to buy when I was little. They were a bit chewy, and flexible. I really liked them.

Recently I bought some waffles in a packet (i.e. not frozen), but they weren't chewy or flexible (by this, I mean if you bent it, it would break pretty easily, a lot more easily than the frozen ones)

I'm wondering if the frozen ones are not actually waffle-like (maybe the freezing did something to them?), and the non-chewy, non flexible waffles I had will be closer to the results I would get from a waffle maker, (in which case, I'd better not waste my money because I will be disappointed)

Or does it depend a lot on the recipe? Of course, it does - I guess I'm asking, what should I expect from the average waffle recipe?
