Hi everyone, it’s Megan from the Food team. I’m very excited to share with you, a new addition to our packaged treats this summer. You asked for it to come to the U.S. and so I’m happy to say; the Caramel Wafer Cookie is back! This cookie has long been offered in Europe but with so many people telling us how good it is, we decided to bring it to the U.S. and Canada again this summer.
The Caramel Wafer Cookie is made up of two thin, round waffle-like wafers. Between the two wafers is a layer of rich caramel filling that gives a sweet chewy texture to the cookie. This cookie is so delicious with a hot cup of coffee. Here’s a little tip; if you let the cookie sit on top of your lid of a warm latte or coffee, the heat from your drink will warm it slightly and make it soft and gooey as the filling warms up.
I couldn’t give you the mouthwatering details without a little history behind this cookie. The Caramel Wafer Cookie originated in the Netherlands in the 1700s. Its Dutch name is “Stroopwafel” or “Syrup Waffle”. Traditionally, they are prepared by slicing a fresh waffle in half horizontally, spreading the filling and rejoining the two pieces. With a long standing history like this, why wouldn’t you want to try it?
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. They will be around for just a short time so be sure to stock up!
Keep the ideas coming!
