Chocolate and tea! (Or: De Beukelaer penny wafel)

It’s always time for chocolate! While at a friend’s house earlier this week I had tea with chocolate. In this case, the chocolate was a “penny wafel” from De Beukelaer, probably only found in Belgium.

Of course, they don’t taste quite the same as the sugar wafers I remember from my childhood — available in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, although those awesomely nostalgic wafers tasted of artificial, sickeningly sweet goodness. Most of the taste was “sugar” rather than “wafer”.

It’s probably good I prefer these Belgium versions now…

    How do I order this Penny Wafel?
    And is it the same as the De Beukelaer wafers that came in a box of about 20, and the top of the box had a little boy dressed in blue wearing a hat and carrying a box of the wafers?

    • Hi! To be honest I don’t remember how the outer package looked as it was something a friend bought in Belgium and brought back to NL. I just have the two photos you see in this post. But according to Google some possible websites to buy it (10x) are dutchexpatshop.com or collectandgo.be, a Belgian site. I hope that helps a tiny bit! The few I was gifted were delicious.
