A stroopwafel is perhaps one of the most convenient and underrated snacks on the planet. The thin cookie sandwich, which is made of two wafer cookies and a gooey caramel filling, is not only handy and stores for a long time, it is also utterly delicious and pairs well with just about any hot drink imaginable – tea, milk, coffee, or even hot coco.
But did you know that there is more than one way to enjoy this perfectly sweet, caramel treat?
Former NFL player John Bronson, (Arizona Cardinals) and Dutch native, Femke Veelenturf are the co-founders of Finger Licking Dutch, one of the country’s leading stroopwafel brands. John and Femke, tells the five of the best ways to enjoy this all-day, all-season Dutch snack.
- Paired with a hot drink
Bronson remembers the time he first encountered stroopwafels. It was during his and Femke’s first date. Originally from The Netherlands, Femke was working as a school teacher then. She handed him a hot mug of coffee with a cookie on top. After having a taste of the warm caramel surrounded by two crispy wafers, he was hooked. It was all thanks to this moment that Finger Licking Dutch was born. To this day, Bronson still thinks that the traditional way is one of the best ways to eat a stroopwafel, especially in the mornings.
