Eating the Globe: The Netherlands

Stroopwafel! There's a local food stand that just sells these sweets, but it's never open. Now, it appears that it's shut down forever.

I had kind of given up on stroopwafels but my wife bought a tin of them from Trader Joe's today, not knowing that they were on my list.

It's sweet and dense. End of review.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Algeria, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Liberia, Madagascar, Morocco, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa, Tunisia, Zimbabwe
Asia: Afghanistan, Armenia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, China, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen

These things can sometimes become dry and hard.
My recommendation: place it on top of a fresh cup of coffee (preferably dark, strong, no sugar), leave it for some minutes, then enjoy your coffee+softened biscuit.
(The Netherlands is rather a coffee-drinking country)
Some people suggest the shape and dimension of stroopwaffels are devised for covering a coffee mug.
