[Wikimedia-l] Good news for Wikimedians in San Francisco!

Romaine Wiki-2
Hi all,

As you of course know, stroopwafels are official wikifood. See:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Association_of_Stroopwafel_Addicts

As Dutch we are aware of the shortage of this original typical wikifood in
other parts of the world, so we travel around the world with many packages
each year at Wikimania and elsewhere. However, it is always more tasty to
eat fresh stroopwafels, so the Dutch inspire a lot of people around the
world to sell them.

Of course everyone has a high need as Wikipedian/Wikimedian, but as the
headquarters of the Wikimedia movement is in San Francisco, the supply is
there the most urgent.

Today I learned that Wikimedia people in San Francisco do not have to bit
on their teeth or tongue, but can now buy fresh stroopwafels!
See: http://www.stroopiegourmet.com/

Finally San Francisco is saved from an anarchy because of a huge shortage
of stroopwafels.

I hope that the San Francisco people enjoy the official Wikipedia/Wikimedia
wikifood as part of their daily (!) local cuisine!

Romaine

This is spectacular news Romaine! Thank you for finding it!

BCCing the Wikimedia-sf list so that they see it ;) [though I imagine I'll
have to clear it through given BCC]

+1. Roan Kattouw, our official supplier, can finally have a relief. ;-)
Before that, we need a true Dutch person to approve Stroopie's originality
though.

Never heard of Stroopies, but for those with access to a CostCo store, I
have persoally taste-tested their stroopwafels against the true Goudse
Stroopwafels and can vouch for them. The ones for sale at Barnes and Noble
caf├ęs that are individually wrapped are *not* the real thing, however,
though tasty in their way.

And it seems they are even freshly made - better than what Roan can provide
you with (sorry Roan, but usually we indeed provide a second grade
product..), but you actually have to /go/ there to get them.

By the way, guess where they are linking for the pronunciation?! That
should give you a discount, I'd guess...
