1. Speaking of Dutch sweets, “Stroopwafel”


Stroopwafel is a pastry that originated in the Netherlands. It’s a thin waffle covered with a sweet syrup.

It’s a waffle, but with syrup in between, so it’s deliciously moist!

It is an affordable souvenir that can be bought at any supermarket in the Netherlands. They are not too sweet, which is to Japanese taste, and go well with tea or coffee. .

You can buy it for 2.29 euros, so try it once and see how you like it.

2. Actually the world’s largest cheese exporter! Dutch cheese as a souvenir


Can you take cheese home with you? If you’re looking for a place to bring home cheese, you can get it vacuum packed at the store, and the cheese itself will last for a long time. It’s not a problem to take it home as a souvenir.

Specialty stores will even let you taste the cheese, so you don’t have to risk giving something you don’t know how it tastes as a souvenir.

Gouda cheese, a famous semi-hard cheese, is the best choice for a souvenir.

Gouda cheese has a yellow wax coating on its surface, as shown in the picture below.

The cheeses are not too habit-forming, so they are easy to choose as souvenirs for Japanese people.

On the contrary, softer cheeses do not last very long. If you want to buy a souvenir, choose a hard cheese.

We went to a cheese store called “Amsterdam cheese company”.

It is a short walk from Amsterdam Central Station, so you can stop by while sightseeing. You can taste everything you are interested in and buy it when you are satisfied. The cheese with herbs and basil is delicious!
