About Daelmans Stroopwafels
Hi, we are Daelmans Stroopwafels. We’re a Dutch family bakery and we make – you guessed it – Stroopwafels. It’s what we’re good at. And what we love doing. You only have to bite into a Daelmans Stroopwafel to experience why this Dutch classic is now a worldwide favorite.
Ever since Hermanus Daelmans opened up his little family bakery in 1904, we’ve stayed true to his words: ‘When you indulge, do it right’. It’s our family’s well-kept tradition of honest, dedicated craftsmanship. It’s the quality ingredients you taste in every bite. And it’s why we believe that some things should just never change. Ever.
So, what’s the waffle? Well, let’s start with saying that words cannot describe what happens when you bite into a Daelmans Stroopwafel. We’ll give it a try nonetheless, as you’re already reading this text and may not have a Stroopwafel at hand!
Here we go. Each and every Daelmans Stroopwafel is made of a delicious caramel syrup filling – ‘stroop’, as we say in Dutch – squeezed in between two thin layers of freshly baked dough. Stroopwafels are soft, fragrant and rich. Very, very, very, very, very rich. Each Stroopwafel is loaded with caramel that gets all mixed up and chewy once you bite into it. As it starts melting on your tongue, you’ll be carried along by a thick stream of lava-like stroop.
Don’t worry, this only takes a couple of seconds. After that, you’re back on earth and ready for your next bite.
Experience the magic of stroop
One more thing. You might have heard that the Dutch created land out of sea with feats of engineering. We’d like to add that they – actually, we – also created Stroopwafels! Okay, so how do you get the most out of your Daelmans Stroopwafel? Our favorite way to thoroughly enjoy a Stroopwafel is to warm it up over a steaming hot cup of coffee or tea. It’s an old Dutch ritual called ‘Wake the wafel’, which only takes three steps:
1. Rest a Stroopwafel on top of your hot cup of coffee or tea.
2. Wait for about two minutes to allow the caramel to get all soft and melty.
3. Your wafel is now awake. Go on then, bite into the gooey goodness!
Of course there are many more ways to enjoy your Daelmans Stroopwafel! Just experience the magic of stroop and check out our stories and recipes for more inspiration.
That’s it for now, dear world citizen. Thanks for visiting our website. Hope to see you soon. Either online or somewhere along the curvy roads of our wide, wide world!
Best wishes from Holland,
Team Daelmans Stroopwafels
