Pepernoten, Taaitaai, marzipan, sugar beasts, butter stick, meringues, chocolate letters and of course the ‘good old’ kruidnoten: it’s time for it again and we love it! In The Hague there are hundreds of places where you can score the most delicious kruidnoten in striking flavours, we have listed a number of addresses for you.
Truffle Cinnamon, Tiramisu or Pistachio: at Van Delft on the corner of Hoogstraat they have dozens of special flavors of kruidnoten. It’s nice that you can taste them all (!). Once you have made a choice, a bag of kruidnoten costs 4 euros.
For people with a gluten allergy or if you don’t want to consume too much sugar, Hema is the right place for you. For 2,85 euros you will find kruidnoten with less sugar (so not without sugar) and gluten-free kruidnoten.
At Easter you can see dozens of flavors of Easter eggs at Jamin. During Sinterklaas there are many kinds of chocolate letters, but there is not much room for kruidnoten. We did find regular, milk, white and dark chocolate kruidnoten. Only notable spice notes were those with caramel flavour. A bag costs 3,50 euros.
The Van Delft gingerbread shop has also thought of people who are allowed/want to get yellow gluten. The kruidnoten cost 4 euros per bag and are also lactose free. Do you want them covered with chocolate? That is also possible, then a bag costs 5 euros.
Kruidvat has a wide range of kruidnoot flavors. The most striking are these blue kruidnoten of 1,50 euros per bag. The kruidnoten have a layer of white chocolate and are also so blue that you also have a blue mouth and fingers when you eat them.
