- A​ Stroopwafel in Eindhoven.

I​nternational Goodies: Dutch Stroopwafels are so good

E​specially when they are freshly made

I​ still remember the first time I had a Dutch Stroopwafel, aka a Syrup Waffle. It was back in 2015, and I had just stepped off the train on my first ever visit to Amsterdam. There, I headed right for the VVV (Tourist Information) to get a map.

Since those foreign objects looked very intriguing, I bought a two-pack of Stroopwafles right there. And they were very good!

T​hat year I had actually visited the Netherlands twice, once in July, and the other time for New Year's Eve.

O​n my second Visit, I was staying at a Friend's in Utrecht, and there I had my first ever freshly made giant Stroopwafel. It was much better than anything I had ever bought at any VVV or Supermarket.

T​he Waffle was much crispier, and the Caramel Syrup was still nice and warm and extra gooey. It was very awesome!

F​or the next Years, I would only be able to have Supermarket ones though, as I did not visit the Netherlands again until 2019. I also did not want to miss out on the Goodness though.

W​hen I then visited again back in 2019, I discovered something I had never heard of before: Stroopwafel Liqueur!

Usually, I am not that much into Alcohol, but this Stuff was very delicious. It was also not too sweet, and that is hard to achieve considering the Base of the Booze.

I​ could buy that Stuff online, but just like the other Dutch Liqeour I had discovered on that Trip, it is a little pricey here in Germany. But then again, it does not cost much more than a Bottle of Bacardi, around 13€. So maybe I will actually order some.

A​ few Days ago then, I had to buy tiny Stroopwaffels at the Supermarket. The normal sized ones were sold out, and I was having a major 'I want that' Moment, so I could not go back Home without any.

A​nd I have to admit: I kinda like those Kleintje Stroopwafels much more than their normal sized Counterparts. The Syrup to Waffle Ratio seemed to be much better. I liked that.

B​ut fresh made Stroopwafels still reign King. Sadly, the last Time I was able to have those was back in 2019. That was in Rotterdam, in the local Markthal.

A​lso, should I buy that Booze and the other Dutch Booze I know to 'Review' them? That would cost me around 28€ + Shipping.
