I got a ton of it from there. OK it costs more because of postage, etc, but I can't get enough of the stuff.

Thanks for the idea, Bouncy! :D
Listen.

It isn't a fruit cake, it's ontbijtkoek (breakfast cake) ;)

Glad you like it :D

It's delish, but we didn't have it for breakfast though - what amateurs! :lol:

You need to place your stroopwafels on the top of a cup of coffee to let the steam warm them up and turn the stroop soggy. ;)

There's a little something in the post to you, too! ;)

Pity my dear old dad isn't still around. He'd have loved it.

I got my parcel from Sjoerd last saturday and it's great! I found out that there's cinnamon sweeties (delicious) and something that google traduction guess as butter sweeties, and of course the liquorice ones.
I do my best to prolong their agony ^^

I've sent my parcel last friday, too, I hope they will reach their new homes very soon!

My parcel from Sjoerd arrived just now! Stroopwafels! Boterwafeltjes (I had one of these straight away - yummmm) Coffee candies sound delish and some sort of cake? I haven't worked that out yet but am waiting for the rest of the family to come home before we try it :) Feels a bit like Christmas :)

Thank you, Sjoerd!

I got some coffee sweets when I was in the Netherlands as Sharlene liked then so much. When I was in Cardiff city centre the other day I saw the same ones for sale in a newsagent there. :D
