@Stallion, I was about to reply that we musta received different kinds of goodies, but when I fn rechecked an empty package I was throwing away,…sure enough it has cinnamon & Burbon vanilla written right on the package!! I guess, maybe I Am getting old & senile!! Dammit,…My Bad!! BTW, I repeatedly mentioned in other damn comments that the earlier stroopwafels didn’t contain any Cinnamon!! Again, My Bad!!
@AVahne, No, they just cause PD [postpandrial diarrhea], aka da shits, aka, da runs!! I never eat more than two, or three, butt you don’t have to eat 96, just 5 -10 & you’re off to da races. If that does happen you can take some Pepto-Bismol, Ultra, or try the BRAT diet [Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, or Toast]!! Believe Me I Know!!
@Stevo32792 wait, what? Oh snap. My wife made me swear not to order more of these, but I feel like my office kitchen needs a supply of them, and buying them at a store and taking them directly to work is definitely not ordering them from Meh to my home. I feel it complies with both the letter and the spirit of the request.
My order of these from last time, Sept 22, did not arrive until Oct 9th. I emailed meh on the 8th because it had been 2 weeks, just asking what happened. They responded to me on the 9th, saying it’ll arrive that day, and they refunded me the shipping cost.
@madanthony, I used the Enhanced Shipping option & they were delivered via Fedx buy the Smart Choice delivery method, which means Fedx dropped the pkg at the local USPS! The Postlady delivered it on Spt the 29th & it came in a box, I think, but may’ve came in a white plastic bag!! I didn’t have to wait till sometime in Oct& they’re definitely Gggoooooooddd!!
@madanthony Mine just hit my mailbox today, apparently — I haven’t been to check yet, but I got the delivery notice on my phone. It seems it took a side trip to Northern Virginia to Charleston, WV on the way to me.
Bought these a month ago was $15 for 48 so this is a better deal by 6 bucks , took very long to get to my house was in my town for 6 days before it was delivered , worst of all they were not soft at all …more like a stale cookie …or wafer ,not stuffed full of ingredients, very disappointed ate 2 and really have no taste for them …Good luck with yours maybe yours will be a fresher batch …
@mellowirishgent As the other person said, they’re not supposed to be soft. If you want them soft and kinda melty you’re supposed to put them on top of your mug of tea and the steam softens them. Or you can microwave them as well.
Isn’t this what I get on flights on American Airlines? If it is, they really are delicious. And no one around me is ever willing to trade for the pretzels that the unfortunate ones in the back rows get.
@AuntMean67@warpedrotors yeah, and closing of restaurants created a surplus of pasta last Spring. Remember those fun 20-100lb shipments? The mailman sure does!
And also messed up distribution of wine that often went to restaurants and bars. The winemaker on the wine site for their current deal explained this was why we were getting a $30 bottle of wine for $13-$16,
Normal wine markup for an eatery. Producers facing storage issues with new vintages, if not smoke damaged, and need both the cash and storage is creating some truly amazing discounts; stock up if you have the room.
I bought 48 of these last go round. They survived being crammed in my mailbox without breaking. My first encounter with stroopwafels was in that international McFlurry what, last year? These are much better than the hard chunks of caramel that was, and I’m glad that the Meh talk about them made me want to give them another shot, and clued me in on warming them for optimum enjoyment. I now know what all the fuss was about.
@djslack Totally lol’d because the freezer is exactly where my lone package of thin mints currently resides. Technically the Lidl version of them, since they’re $.98 a package and likely made in the same plant. https://www.lidl.com/products/1064442
It’s pretty funny that these are being sold one day after mine arrived (from 21 September, no less). I was a little surprised how they were packed - just as pictured in lightweight plastic containers with a sealed cellophane wrapper (no retail box) and a three pack of Texas air on top (but only one with air in it). It clunked loudly when I flipped the box over to unpack it. When I realized it was my waffle order, I feared the worst.
So I needed to sample some. I tried them warmed by a) coffee vapor, b) microwave and c) at room temperature. In condition c, they are OK; in condition a or b they are Stroopid good.
I blame the goat @kykazaa that my favorite coffee mug is too wide to sit these on top, and I needed to switch to a smaller mug.
And none of the waffles I tried had even a crack in them. These are pretty tough cookies.
@mehcuda67 my two trays came in one of the white plastic bags, which was folded and forcibly stuffed into my mailbox. I feared I would have a bunch of individually wrapped packets of crumbs but there is something magical about these. Even the ones that were rolled into a taco shape are intact. Some have squeezed out some of the caramel inside the package, which leaves a tasty mess, but that’s about the worst problem with them.
@mehcuda67 I accept the blame for your coffee mug and the unblame (while not noted) for the spare, yet appropriately sized coffee mug so that you can still have the full coffee heated stroopwafel experience. Also, I believe I am owed some unblame for how stoopid good they are.
@kykazaa I fully grant the (tacit) unblame for finding the appropriate sized coffee mug!
I am not sure how the unblame goes for the stroopid good waffles. Does @Weboh get the unblame? do you? or is the share of the unblame amortized over the number of days of tenure for each goat? I defer to the experts in goatisprudence for the answer.
These are really nice. I am surprised to see them here again so quickly. I think it is about as cheap as you’ll ever see them, but then again they will kill you. For me, last time, the delivery was very fast (still Pitney Bowes --> Post Office). I am thinking about getting while the getting’s good.
Ordered these because neighbors give kids large-size Lindt chocolate bars and have been feeling a bit inferior. Especially while M&M MARS are shrinking their product. But how does "enhanced delivery " work???
@Meraxus119, what about either wear a Hazmat suit as a 1st responder costume, a Space-man’s outfit as an Astronaut, or some cartoon character as a silly costume,…maybe Big Bird, or Big Foot, yeah,…Sasqwatch!!
@Cerridwyn Yes.The ones you get in the Netherlands, even at the airport, are better than most of the ones available in the US. I was told by some natives that the key is making sure they’re made with real butter (and apparently a lot of it). Some of my coworkers used to have business trips to the Netherlands and always brought them back for those of us who didn’t get to go. Those were the best stroopwaffles.
Aldi has them available for a few weeks once a year and those are pretty good as well. Sadly stroopwaffle season came early at Aldi this year (it was in like August. Normally it’s sometime October through mid-December.). So we’ll have to wait a while for those. The ones Meh is selling today are still pretty good.
I made stroopwaffles myself once. It was a lot of work and kinda messy as it required making individual waffles in a waffle cone maker. While still hot, I had to slice the waffles in half the hard way (so I had two thin pieces of waffle) and then slather a still warm cinnamon caramel mixture between the pieces. They were really good but I haven’t made them since that one time.
I bought these the last time they were on offered on Meh. Very tasty. And as one of the purveyors of full size candy bars on Halloween, (fun size - bah, gotta give the kiddos the full sugar rush) these would be great to hand out. I can also confirm that these are best when consumed warm.
I’m assuming these are being bought from United Airlines, based on the weird packaging. United is probably happy to get whatever they can for them at this point. Bought them last time they came through, they’re great!
Bought these last time, don’t need more yet. They are awesome warmed up, but don’t even think of trying to make ice cream sandwiches with them like one of these photos shows… you could pave a road with these when they’re anywhere below room temperature.
I have ~90 from last time too, but wasn’t thinking that they’d make good Halloween treats, along with the case of fidget spinners. I think I’ll put a fidget spinners atop stroop wafels on our trick or treat table
@RiotDemon@sammydog01 thank you i figured! but since it took all 3 times already without success, i think i will sit this one out. Ha Ha Ha! i will just make do with the poop inducing stroople wafels i hoarded last 2 times it was on sale.
You think your pretty funny right?? NOT!!! I was going to make a comment about your wife’s appetite but I will not sink that low. Maybe!! She only consumed one. That is all it took. LOL Want to buy some??
I discovered these originally on my World travels. Fell in LOVE LOVE LOVE with them.
Now for any of you that have not figured this out, there’s a suggested common way they are eaten. I mean, straight up and or warmed in a microwave is good, but the traditional way is with a cup of tea or you can have with coffee. The trick is, you lay the cookie over your cup of hot beverage, resting it on the brim of the cup. A cookie lid! The heat from your beverage will soften the caramel. Others go for the dunk. Another yummy idea with the cookie is to make an ice cream sandwich.
FYI, There are 2 other flavors too.
