If you’ve never had a stroopwafel, you haven’t lived. We recently demonstrated the calming magic of Dutch “rush hour”, but since I was only in AMS for a short layover on the way to Cairo, these tasty treats would have to suffice.

They were originally made using leftovers, like breadcrumbs, from a bakery in Gouda. Today there are websites for fans coping with their addiction, as well as videos by devotees showing how to properly eat them.

If you find yourself in the Netherlands, do yourself a favor and try a fresh stroopwafel for us. The hipmunk shan’t lead you astray.
