Having a hot cup of coffee and a sweet treat for breakfast is a time-honored tradition across the world, including the Netherlands. In fact, in 1810, stroopwafels were first created there by a baker named Gerard Kamphuisen who wanted to make use of some leftover baking ingredients that he had. His creation was a big hit, and soon, word spread of the delicious little snacks. Luckily, you don't have to travel all the way to Holland to find a good stroopwafel anymore though. Here at Waterfall Gourmet Beverages, we always have a fresh supply of them in stock for our customers. Here are a few reasons why you should make stroopwafels part of your next coffee shop supply order.
The Perfect Size
Stroopwafels are intentionally made to be just slightly bigger than the surface of the average coffee cup. The reason for this is that it is customary to set the treat on top of the cup for a minute or two before eating it. That way, the steam from the hot beverage gently warms and softens it up.
The Perfect Flavor
The center of a stroopwafel is filled with a delicious maple syrup that offers just the right amount of sweetness, and the outside is buttery and rich. So these treats taste similar to a regular waffle. But for those who are looking for something a little different than the traditional stroopwafel, we also offer chocolate and gluten-free varieties of them.
One of the best things about stroopwafels is their portability. Unlike other coffee shop treats, they are soft, and their syrupy center doesn't drizzle out onto your clothing with every bite, which means that they can be enjoyed virtually anywhere. This makes it easier for people who are in a rush to head out on their morning commute to take them along for their drive.
The waffle irons that are used to make stroopwafels have different designs embedded in them, which are transferred onto the dough as it is heated. So some say that they are one of the fanciest waffle treats that a person can offer at a brunch, office party, or any other get-together.
