I Love Stroopwafels!

One of my favorite things about Aruba--Stroopwafels. Originating in the Netherlands, Stroopwafels are waffle-like cookies made from two thin layers of baked batter with a carmel filling in the middle.  Sweet, but not too sweet; chewy, but not too chewy, these goodies are extremely addictive and you "can't eat just one."  Dean Mihalik of USC's College of Hospitality, Retail, & Sport Management goes into hysterics when I mispronounce the name of these tasty treats.  Tip-of-the-day:  place a stroopwafel over your coffee cup until it starts to melt a little and morphs into a gooey, coffee-tasting confection.  Beware, the grocery stores here are filled with delicious cheeses, breads, and baked goods.

  1. Great story! It can be difficult to pronounce it correctly, yes :)

    If you get back to the USA, you can get your daily stroopwafel at

    Have fun in Aruba!
