Where to find Dutch goodies in the U.S.

Updated on December 16, 2011

Dutch delicacies available in the United States

Have you ever enjoyed typical Dutch cuisine? I did, because I lived in the Netherlands for almost 10 years. I admit, before I moved to Holland, I had no idea what to expect as far as food was concerned (or much else, for that matter! It was my first trip abroad). Typical Dutch foods include fries (frites) with mayonnaise sauce, bread with hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles), and stamppot, a kind of one-pot meal made from mashed potatoes and other vegetables, usually served with meat and sauce. My favorites are satesaus (peanut sauce) and especially Dutch chocolate. But where can I find these things now that I've moved back to the United States?! Below are some of the sources I have found, and I am always looking for more! Have you seen Dutch foods in a local shop? Please let me know by adding a comment to the guestbook below!

      @anonymous: Yeah and you pay top dollar for shipping costs too. Van Ver Veen's Dutch store has good rates and is within the States so I pay only UPS shipping fee's which are low.

      If there's no store within a reasonable driving distance you can also buy Dutch goodies online at www.holland-at-home.nl - this is an online Dutch supermarket. They have an excellent, reliable and fast service and ship to the US as well. I grew up in Holland so can't live without them ;-)

      Well, my shop www.zazzle.com/dutchdesign is full of Dutch goodies! They're not edible though... I live in a typical cheese town called Alkmaar and like to promote Dutch thingies.
