Back to feed

As you know Jungle Jim’s International Market is a mecca for international foods so we wanted to take Discoveries to Holland this month! Well, Holland and the Netherlands. Many people might be surprised to find out Holland isn’t actually a country itself. It’s actually a region of the Netherlands. But we don’t have to get that nitpicky, even people from the Netherlands sometimes just call the whole country Holland. The Netherlands and Holland have some really cool foods that we can explore this month so that’s a win-win for all!

When you take a look at the food from Holland you’ll find a lot of dairy products, especially cheese and chocolate. You will also find a variety of delicious baked goods. The Dutch know their sweets! While discovering Holland with us you will get a chance to taste some of the delicious snacks of the region. Let’s explore shall we?

Daelmans Stroopwafels

These waffle cookies are made with roasted waffles stuffed with sweet honey or caramel filling, along with cinnamon and real bourbon vanilla. If you’re looking for something to go with your morning coffee, you absolutely must try these! They’ve been in the business since 1909, and it shows.

Did you know? Did you know that carrots didn’t use to be orange? They were black, yellow, red, purple or white. An orange variant was made in honor of the House of Orange, that led the revolt against the Spanish and later became the Dutch Royal Family.

De Heer Chocolate Bar

De Heer makes classic Dutch chocolate. They are probably most famous for their chocolate letters, but they make a huge variety of bars as well! If you are looking for an authentic Dutch chocolate experience, look no further.

Did you know? The Netherlands is the world’s biggest exporter of cheese; its dairy industry worth a mind-blowing €7 billion.
