Thank you so much for joining me and kicking off the Finger Licking Dutch stroopwafel project.
Finger Licking Dutch is a stroopwafel company, that is bringing stroopwafels to America.
* Stroopwafel literally means “syrup waffle.”
The delicious taste of caramel surrounded by two waffle wafers is sure to make everybody happy. :)
Hi, my name is Femke Veelenturf and I’m the Co-Founder of Finger Licking Dutch. I am from the Netherlands - a small European country about one two-hundredth the size of the United States.
I have visited the United States many times and have many friends around the country and I always have to bring the REAL Dutch stroopwafels when I visit.
Growing up in the Netherlands, I was exposed to many typical Dutch things like windmills, cheese, tulips, bicycles, and wooden shoes...
But one of my favorite things is called the stroopwafels - or translated into English - the caramel waffle.
What Is A Stroopwafel?
A stroopwafel is a waffle cookie made from thin layers of dough with a layer of special caramel in the middle.
Stroopwafels are a popular treat in the Netherlands that were first made in Gouda during the 1900's.
Stroopwafels are great with pretty much anything. You can place them on a hot cup of coffee or tea, eat them for breakfast, lunch or dessert. You can even eat a stroopwafel before a workout or a bike ride.
As a school teacher, I see that Stroopwafels are also a great snack for kids when parents are on the go.
All of the ingredients are produced in Holland to bring you the authentic Dutch taste that can only be made in the Netherlands.
Why Are We Crowdfunding?
I’m on a mission to make stroopwafels widely available to local retailers and customers across the U.S, bringing smiles and happiness to customers along the way.
My goal is to properly introduce stroopwafels to the U.S and make them widely available for everyone to experience this delicious real Dutch treat.
How Did I Come Up With The Idea?
About three years ago I started experimenting with the idea after my long shifts as a school teacher.
Finally, after much research, I came up with a way to bring stroopwafels to the United States.
Every day after work, I started testing and meeting with suppliers who have successfully produced high-quality stroopwafels.
I managed to convince some colleagues to help me and give me the support and guidance that I needed to make this dream a reality.
Join us as we start this journey by supporting our project today. We have some great gifts to offer in return.
You can be one of the first to receive samples of our products.
You can receive an autographed package of stroopwafels by some of my former NFL football friends.
Bring Smiles To Elementary Schools
As a BIG bonus, Finger Licking Dutch will be donating stroopwafels to at least 5 elementary school classes in 2019. I have a soft spot for school kids as I know these stroopwafels will bring smiles and joy to their little hearts.
We are so excited to share Finger Licking Dutch stroopwafels with you before anyone else. Your contribution will make a big difference in helping us bring joy to you, your family, your friends and the school kids that we will serve.
