Stroopwafels (Nl-stroopwafels2.ogg pronunciation (help·info)) (English translation: syrup waffles) are thin Dutch waffles with a syrup filling. They were first made in Gouda in the Netherlands, in 1784. Large versions are sold in the streets as a snack........beats rat on a stick surely!

If only I had known this before....they would definately have been on my love list...even without tasting them.


The ones the street vendors sell are delicous (and big) :D You can still try them minna I.m sure you can order them somewhere :D

Tuna - ok so long as the dolphins are happy.

Here are my love/hate food relationships....

Weetabix - hate hate hate...just the thought of it's consistency - yeuk!
Celery with salt on - love love love - nowhere near as nice without the salt.
Chocolate - love
Olives - hate
Red peppers - hate
Parma violet sweets - love

By the way....what is a stroopwaffel?


:?


:D Sorry to change the subject slightly, but does anyone remember or has anyone heard of the parma violets that were kind of different ? Like, they were small and different shapes and colours ? I remember them in a plastic box ? Can anyone remember what they were called? :D

I instantly wanted to send Terry a case of Stroopwafels... then I had the mental image of every Pratchett Fan around the world inundating his poor cottage, surrounded by crates and crates of Stroopwafels, muttering about how crazy we all are...
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

I used to like "Lovehearts" with each having a tacky word or phrase on them, and you'd always save the romantic ones to give to some girl you fancied.

I always thought they should have been more sexually explicit. Or "Hatehearts" with things like "go and stick your head in a mincing machine" on them.
"Disliking Carrot would be like kicking a puppy."
"You kicked a puppy," Lobsang said accusingly.
