Gouda’s Gilde Siroopwafelen

Foodiegirl_Boston Mar 11, 2008 05:57 AM

Does anyone know where I can purchase these divine delights in the Boston area?? A coworker of mine introduced them to me, but she only is able to get them when someone goes overseas and brings them back for her! I realize that you can purchase them through some online vendors but we're trying to avoid the hassle and shipping costs :-)

      An alternative when you're in East Boston - Rincon Limeno has delicious alfajores - butter "sandwich" cookies with dulce de leche (similar to caramel) as the filling. Can take out also.

        This is what is so awesome about Chowhound. In one thread, I learned the name of something, what it is, and where to buy it! Next, someone will likely post how to make them!

          Some more to whet your appetite:
          Once you find your stroopwafels, you can chop them up and put them in Speculoos-Stroopwafel Ice cream, recipe here:

          And if you don't know what Speculoos or Biscoff spread is, there was a recent thread on finding that in Boston, too:

            TYVM, stomachofsteel! I did read about the Biscoff spread. I'm "afraid" to find it!! It sounds soooooooo good. I'll be checking out the stroopwafels in TJ's next time I'm there.

        I buy them at Cardullo's and Whole Foods. I'm pretty sure I saw them at Savenor's.

        I can't vouch for the brand -- the stroopwaffels I've seen aren't "Gouda's Gilde".

        They're great to put atop a cup of coffee/tea so the syrup inside softens!

          What are they? I assume it's one product, made by Gouda? :-) I had to read your post just because of the complicated title.

            Actually, "Gouda's Gilde" is the brand. "Siroopwafels" literally translates to (I think) "syrup waffles" (I also think they are more commonly called "stroopwafels" - same translation). They consist of a layer of caramel sandwiched between two thin waffle cookies, and were first made in the town of Gouda. The brand is owned by the Dutch company Van der Breggen, which also produces siroopwafels under the Kanjers and Baker Joop brands, which may give the original poster some additional items to search for.

            Unfortunately, I don't know where to find them in the Boston area. A 2004 Boston Globe article said that Cardullo's in Harvard Square and Whole Foods carried siroopwafels, but different brands.

              I think Trader Joes carries them!

                They definitely do carry some brand of stroopwafel. It's a nice treat. I need to do a TJs trip soon so I'll keep an eye out for what brand they are.

                  I don't think TJs carries the Gouda's Gilde brand, but they definitely have stroopwafels. I *know* I've seen them in Whole Foods and specialty food stores - perhaps Williams-Sonoma and/or Sur la Table?
