Been trying to find stroopwafels (dutch caramel waffle biscuits) in Tescos and Aldi but can't find any, anyone know if any of the other supermarkets sell them?

Lakeland do a caramel waffle biscuit although it isn't called a stroopwaffle. They are delicious.

I love these biscuits also.

My local Asda used to sell them as "ASDA Extra Special Caramel Wafers". They were made in the Netherlands.

Apparently there is a local version made and sold in Wales called Tregroes Toffee waffles and these are also sold in Starbucks and Pret-a-manger and through Ocado, who are associated with Waitrose so they might sell them too. Unfortunately none of these stores are near me and Ocado is 40 minimum spend, will try Asda next to see if they still sell them, cheers.

Love these waffles when I was in Amsterdam. My Asda no longer stocks the Extra Special ones but I have found a similar waffle in Lidls. They are called caramel wafers by a company called Belbake, a lot cheaper as well. Enjoy!!

Thanks, got some from Lidl today, should have gone there first really, best place for anything European and different, hope they never go the Aldi route and get too British.

I first got the big ones from Lakeland - but have now recently seen them in Sains.

Anyone followed the tip I did on the box i bought from Lakeland? Sit the waffle on top of a steaming hot cup of coffee and leave it there for a minute. This melts the caramel inside the biscuit. Ahhhh....................*Homer Simpson style drool*

Aldi have got caramel waffles in at the moment as well 1.39, they have them time to time but not all the time like Lidl.

Had to stop eating them myself they as they are really moreish but incredibly fattening.

I recently bought some Tregroes Toffee waffles at Ocado. They also sold some similar waffles by Biona--apricot waffles and maple syrup waffles. I bought both kinds, but I haven't tried them yet.

Aldi recently had some stroopwafels (syrup waffles) and I bought the lot. I'm glad because they were gone the next time I went.

Love them - my friend always gets me some in return for feeding his cat while he is Amsterdam for work. ( He is a shipping agent not anything dodgy)

Still readily available in Lidl at around 1.50 for a pack of 10. The genuine article, too.
