My favorite budtender, with the day-glo yellow hair, is now recommending her favorite edibles and the Dutch Girl Stroopwafels were on the very top of her list. They come in a resealable container of ten 25mg cookies, equaling a total of 250 mg. The price were purchased them is $25.00 a container. That comes down to $1.00 per 10 mg, very nice price!

The waffle is cinnamon and caramel. Crunchy on the outside and pleasingly chewy on the inside. It was a little weedy tasting, but not too bad. I highly recommend when trying Dutch Girl Stroopwafels that you wait one and a half hours before eating more. They are slow to create a full buzz, but are VERY powerful.I was stoned for 3 ½ hours.
The waffles gave me a heady high. A nice, strong buzz. Once feeling the high, I began to de-stress and chill out. It was a creative, happy, stoned feeling. Dutch Girl Stroopwafels didn’t give me the munchies. (However, I shopped for the holidays really high and now who knows what my friends and family will receive!)
It was so nice, I tried it twice!. I decided, rather quickly, to double check this product. It really is delicious and very strong. Just like my favorite budtender, I absolutely would suggest this to my friends.

Based on Ruth’s recommendation, I tried the Dutch Girl Stroopwafels. Since it sounded like they provided more of a body/Indica effect, I tried them one weekend afternoon at 5pm. I had a late lunch at 2pm so my stomach was half full. Since it was late I didn’t have caffeine with it or anything else to boost the potency. It is already made with a good amount of fat from the butter, so I didn’t feel the need to follow my usual practice and it with something with some fat in it like an avocado or some mac and cheeses
Heading Ruth’s warning about this being a very strong product, I decided I would try half of a single waffle first. One issue for me is that they don’t easily break in half. If they are cold, they are solid enough you could cut them with a sharp knife. My attempt to break one in half gave me more like 60% and 40%, so I started with the 40%.

The taste is good, the sweet caramel mixes with the crunchy sweet ice cream cone waffle cookie. There is definite cannabis taste at the end and it lingers with the caramel as the aftertaste. If you are familiar with Stroopwafels you know they are meant to be enjoyed with a hot drink like coffee or cocoa. As seen in the image, you let them warm on top of your hot beverage and then they can melt in your mouth as you eat them.
As Ruth mentioned, it took a while for me to feel the effects – be prepared to wait a while for this to hit you. Don’t take more if you don’t feel anything in the first hour, it takes a little longer for this to wind up its punch before it hits you! I was sitting for the first 20 minutes after I took it and when I stood up and walked around, I got a distinct head rush.
I ate some dinner after 40 minutes and expected that to retard or reduce the effects. After about an hour, I felt a tiny bit of body relaxation but the primary response was one of a stoned, heavy head. I am very sensitive to any sedating effects that Indica strains have, so I usually feel that more than many people. This was a “don’t drive or operate heavy machinery” kind of feeling with sluggish thinking and slowed reaction time. Like Ruth, I didn’t have strong munchies.
So if you are looking for a strong, relaxing effect this is a good edible for that. It is not something I would have with my morning coffee unless I planned to do almost nothing all day :).
