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.
