@Funkthulhu@Stallion These were the first ones I had ever had (while on a flight) and I started buying the other ones from Costco afterward. I do like these a little better. They’re not quite as crumbly as the ones from Costco and being individually wrapped is a definite bonus. Sometimes trying to get the ones from Costco separated in those bags is a real pain.
@cinoclav@Funkthulhu So I just looked and the Costco ones are 31.5g a piece, vs these ones at 29g each. However, the Costco ones are NOT the same brand as these Meh ones. I haven’t tried the Costco ones but I’m guessing they are worthy. I think I paid $6 on sale for a 40 pack of those. I’d say both are worthy, these Meh ones are from a company that’s been making them for over 100 years so I take nothing against them at the higher price.
So the Meh ones reign supreme even at the higher cost.
Just the fact that if you like these and eat them regularly, may as well also check out the Costco ones. Here is a link to them for comparison.
Seconded on the Costco variety. $6 on sale ($9 regular price). They are melty goodness, not overly refined HFCS sweetness either. A bit chewy and dry eating them cold, but that’s the point, they steam and soften as the caramel melts.
I would say the only difference is the individual wrapping, and the much higher price. Age of a company doesn’t always indicate quality.
The Costco variety are also more accessible in general compared to random offerings across the Mercatalyst diaspora.
@haydesigner I just saw them yesterday at my local high-priced grocery. They were individually wrapped and smaller than I had visualized. They were selling for like $2 or $3 each, which makes this deal seem pretty good.
@craigcush, make good eattin n a LURP bag for the Army Rangers!! They can get me back when They are Veterans!! Don’t Get Mad Just Get Even, Comrads! BTW, If There’re Any Other Vets Out Fn There, “Thankya, 'Thankyaverymuch For Your Service, Guys & Guyettes!!”
@Fodder650@hchavers , here’s 1, cause I’m still shittin candy corn & still have some left [from 2 years ago?]!! I’m also having fn nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach & diarrhea from da last 96 $troopwafles I bought, butt at least they smell awesome!
@Cerridwyn@decoratedwarvet now there is a crazy fun idea. Never did the hot chocolate dip thing with double-boiler and all but would be fun to try. Problem is getting it with high-quality chocolate and not that corn syrup stuff they buy in gallons and put in the chocolate fountains for weddings.
@decoratedwarvet@ocifersven Note that this is largely FUD as Ketoacidosis, a serious medical condition as the TV ads warn you, has very little to do with a Keto diet if not done stupidly. When I took a Keto class I was warned that people, including some doctors, would panic at the word “Keto” and flip to that false narrative of fear and doubt. Not to say that any diet shouldn’t be done with care and medical advice, just that sometimes “medical advice” is ill-informed as yours might be. BTW I am not doing Keto myself, just wanted to say to not loosely associate the two terms.
@decoratedwarvet@pmarin I feel like I need to point out how I was joking, hence the ridiculousness of my 1200 (meant to originally read 1200g) net carbs. I’m a long time Keto dieter pushing 2 years, having lost over 100lbs and corrected all medical concerns such as hypertension, GERD, and any focus on my being pre-diabetic amongst others. My labs are checked every 6-months, and they are the best they’ve ever been. Combine that with me wearing clothes smaller than I wore in high school (I’m 41 right now), I’m a believer in it for my situation. I’m very aware of all Keto concerns having done it this long, and am not one who thinks everyone can benefit as I think our dietary needs vary based on genetics and other situations.
But again, I was joking. While they look delicious, I wouldn’t touch these Stroopwafels with a 10-foot pole. I think just looking at them kicked me out of ketosis.
I really don’t know if I’m going to like these. I do like other Holland things. Licorice well thats about it except opium that comes to mind. I see similar items sold at members only stores and always just resist. Maybe I should buy them there at least they look out for their shoppers and will refund. I’m pretty sure this site won’t let me return after zi eat one and share a few with family. That’s the only real thing I’m worried about ending up with a box of snacks no one will eat. I don’t like eclairs are these something along that line?
@whomeyesu You can get smaller quantities at Target or Walmart and see if you like them; they’re chewy so it’s better to soften them a little over a hot cup of coffee or in the microwave for a few seconds.
@ShotgunX seriously Twix? We eat snickers, reeces, m&ms, 3 musketeers and try to avoid Twix unless assorted bag has them we tend to eat those last or just bring them to work. I already regret this purchase.
@whomeyesu E-mail support and ask to cancel the purchase. It’s not like it will be shipped out tomorrow. Or give them out to friends/co-workers/etc. to make friends. Most people do enjoy these. Like I said, it’s essentially just a semi-crumbly cookie glued together with caramel. Combined together, they have a chewy texture that softens with heat. You should be able to imagine how that should taste.
I still have half of my last order left. Tasty, but household consumption has slowed.
I may order another set and have it shipped to my brother, though… his household has been on lockdown for months, and he recently lost his job, so morale could use a boost. I PastaDropped him this summer; it’s time for another Mediocre pick-me-up!
@thumperchicken What is the return policy on meh for such goods? Just never bought edible goods from meh especially waffles that have carmel,cinnamon and vanilla fill. Don’t know if we will like them. I actually see many like them. We’re not into fancy dancy treats. We normally eat Little Debbie treats. Not ding dongs or vanilla twinkies. Fudge Rounds or Wafers, Pumpkin faces and sometimes strawberry swirls are my favorites.
I bought two cases the first time and handed them out to my teachers at school for a little pick me up. Literally the next day they came up the second time. I bought two more cases and one of my teachers bought one case here. I passed them out in all my beggar’s night bags and had people return for more before the night ended. Watch a co-worker go through a few a day at work. Still have an unopened case but tempted to grab another case. Y’all are killing me!!
They are very good. Bought some the last two times they were offered but still have some left so I’ll have to pass for now.
Also, these are not the ones that make you poop. These, again, are the yummy ones that go well with a hot tea/coffee. Feel safe in your purchase and enjoy a scrumptious treat! We all need one after what this fucking year has been.
@aperfecttool72 I bought a case after Auntmean determined the dozen pricing and mind control. Another buyer describes as Twix. I hope that is not accurate at all. Family dislikes Twix. Even a Butter Finger is accepted though.
@whomeyesu A Twix? I don’t think so, but I like a chilled Twix myself. The only thing it’s really in common with a Twix is the fact that it has caramel. No shortbread or chocolate. The vanilla comes through quite a bit. That’s the sweet part of the waffles.
These are very good. Already did two previous offers; first was 2 boxes, next was 4 boxes, so just don’t need more. BTW don’t worry too much about “use by” date since these are individually sealed and actually will be tasty for a long time. Just keep in a cool place.
Remember to enjoy them the most, warm up over a hot beverage cup or microwave for 5 seconds.
My son and I like them a lot. My wife hates them. I’m not sure if my daughter tried them. Several of my co-workers are hooked on them.
They don’t taste like Twix but I really can’t come up with a better comparison for the masses. The flavor is unique. As someone else mentioned, the vanilla flavor is prominent and the cinnamon is more subtle. Good Lord. I sound like a stroopwafel snob. Might as well go full bore…
“Daelman’s Stroopwafelry brings together caramel and cinnamon undertones and a sugary chewy essence with a strong vanilla finish in their 2019 Stroopwafel.”
@Trinityscrew If you say your wife hates them, which is OK I suppose though I don’t understand it, just make sure it is these specifically and not the other “healthy” Canadian version, AKA “Poopwaffel” that have also been sold here which are OK but very different.
@pmarin Thanks for the feedback. I know about the "poop"wafels. (heh, heh.) I didn’t buy those. I did buy 96 of these the last time they were for sale with the intention of giving them out for Halloween. My wife put the kibosh on that after tasting one. She actually spit it out. I actually already knew she had poor taste. She married ME.
So I took them to work. Someone just took the last one a few minutes ago.
@steeltoesenator I seem to recall someone mentioning it wasn’t a good use for them, as since they get softer when you warm them, they get harder (or maybe it was chewier) when chilled. They suggested not to try it. Too bad, as the pic does make it look intriguing…
@burckhartjack I would agree that other than ones brought over on a plane from Holland (Netherlands is the same place! some don’t know…). You can buy them at the airport and they are fresh though they still have a long shelf-life. I think the key is that the wafer/caramel interface is more distinct as they have not had a chance to merge together as they inevitably do. Which is OK too.
I’m not quite halfway through the last 96-pack I ordered, which presents a real dilemma: do I assume that, hey, looks like these come up about once a month, and at my current rate of consumption I probably won’t run out before they come up again? Or… (shudder)… could this be the last time, and I should stockpile while I can?
@swhall05 My wife almost didn’t let me give out the last 96-pack for the fancy dressed imps on All Hallows’ Eve. Thankfully we had fewer visits this year and we had a sleeve for later. Now I must buy more, even though I’ve been forbidden from these “small” purchases. She’ll thank me later.
/giphy awkward powerful oyster
The only tricker treaters I saw this year were dressed (sloppily) as recently unemployed airline workers and they were trying to sell stroopwaffels, which was also evidently the only thing they’d eaten in weeks. My girlfriend walked up and said “aww that’s a cute little former customer service desk person that now sleeps in his car until it gets repossessed.” Then she asked me “Did you give them some stroopwaffels?” Which elicited an in-character chorus of very convincing sobbing from our suspiciously tall treat seeking guests. I wouldn’t normally take special requests, but they were dedicated to the part so in lieu of stroop i gave each of them a celery and a shiny nickel, which they started at muttering before scampering off like gollum. Heh crazy kids.
@abillmann yeah, I checked earlier and it seems like the usual 2-wafel packets weigh 1.375 ounces per wafel meaning these 1 ounce ones are either thinner or overall smaller, same as those other ones >.>
I still have 24 left from the last time. I love these things like no other. Handed out some to friends for Halloween. Can’t decide if I should pull the trigger for more… is there ever too much of a good thing?
Since Meh was kind enough to make up for the missing Kind bars in my other order and these still haven’t sold out yet, I might as well get some for holiday snacks. I hadn’t realized these were the same as the ones I’ve previously gotten and liked from Wal-Mart.
Let’s hope we won’t have to take a recount of these as well.
