What is a Rip Van Wafel?

A Rip Van Wafel is a low sugar sandwich cookie. It is a healthier take on the stroopwafel; a traditional Dutch delicacy.

What makes Rip Van Wafels different from traditional stroopwafels, cookies & sweet snacks more broadly (eg granola bar, breakfast bar, madeleine etc)?

Both the leading cookie in the US and the traditional stroopwafel have ~14g of sugar/serving, are high in empty calories and low in fiber. A Rip Van Wafels rivals in taste but contains anywhere between 3-5g of sugar and 6g of fiber. This is significantly better than both the leading granola bar and breakfast bar brand in the US.

What is the best way to eat a Rip Van Wafel?

Most people love to have our product as is, savoring every deliciously chewy bite till they’ve devoured the whole wafel. That said our product can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways:

  • Paired with a Beverage - The baked and spice flavor notes in our product pair particularly well with a range of coffee & teas. They can be enjoyed in sequence, dunked or warmed over the rim of a hot beverage.
  • Topped - Rip Van Wafels can be enjoyed as a more substantial snack. Some of our favorite healthy toppings include: nut butter, icelandic yogurt or coconut yogurt. For indulgent toppings a chocolate or chocolate hazelnut paste is our favorite.
  • Dessert - Whether used as a graham cracker replacement for smores, you want to create an ice cream sandwich or crumble our wafels as a topping. Rip Van Wafels makes for a great desert component.;
