|"Just wanted you to know how much we are enjoying the stroopwafels I recently ordered from coffeecakes.com. It is nice to know I can order them anytime and not have to wait for our sales rep from The Netherlands to bring some over on his rare
trips to the U.S. I will be ordering more of them from you soon and will also try other items, too. Thanks!"|

|Stroopwafel Dutch Cookies|
|Tradition says we may have Napoleon to thank for the Stroopwafel. In the early 1800's the French emperor dictated that sugar be grown in Holland, a part of the French empire at that time. Napoleon wanted to free France from reliance on foreign sugar and not long afterward the Stroopwafel appeared in the Dutch town of Gouda. Stroopwafels are delightful - crisp paper thin coasters held together with rich, gooey cinnamon caramel syrup. Available in quantities of 8, 20 or 40.
