The most popular flavors

The kruidnoten themselves are not bad either. Of course you buy the standard natural and chocolate peppernuts here, but the special flavors are the most popular. Owner Miguel Groeneveld explains: “Stroopwafel, caramel sea salt, truffle and apple pie are the most sold. The chocolate mix is ​​on every corner of the street, people come to our store for the special flavors.”

Spicy pepernoot

The flavors are certainly special. Miguel: “Every year we come up with new variants. To do this, we look at trends, but we also get a lot of ideas from customers. We write them down and discuss them together. This year’s new flavors include ginger matcha, cookie dough, dulche de leche, mango passion fruit and amaretto.”

“We also launched the special flavor dark raspberry chili. We were often asked by customers if we could develop a spicy kruidnoot. We hadn’t thought of that ourselves, but in combination with dark chocolate and raspberry it is delicious.” Not only Miguel thinks so, also the

review platform Livingproef (21, 8k followers on Instagram). They call the dark raspberry chili spice nut ‘a unique experience that you have to experience’. Are you curious how this – or any of the other kruidnoten – tastes? Then visit the store, because at Peppernuts you can taste everything!

    Of course you want to take the best possible care of your pet. What if your picky cat suddenly doesn’t like his kibble anymore? Or if your dog does not react well to his kibble? Sanne de Regt, recipe developer at CaroCroc, answers the five most frequently asked questions about feeding your dog or cat.

    My dog ​​gobbles up his food. How can I prevent this?

    If your dog is a goblin, you will probably recognize it: you put his bowl of food down and in front of your ‘dog food’ you can say his bin is empty. Sanne explains: “That is bad for the digestive system. Fortunately, there are things you can do about this. You can prevent your dog from eating too quickly with an anti-scratch bowl, sniffing mat or intelligence game. Because of this, he has to make an effort to get his food, so that he does not eat too quickly. Good to know: this is also a fun way to eat for cats.” You can easily make a sniffing mat yourself. View the DIY of CaroCroc here.

  • My cat is picky: it seems impossible to find food that he likes. What can I do?

    Cats are often picky, so you may just have one at home. Sanne knows what to do: “Cats often have a preference for a certain taste and sometimes for the shape of a kibble. This is a matter of trial and error: buy different types of kibble and offer them. In this way you will eventually come across a type of food that your cat does like. It is also possible that he suddenly no longer wants a certain type of food. Then you apply the same strategy: serve your pet a few species one at a time, and after a while you find out which one he does want.”

    CaroCroc has three flavors and shapes worth trying cat food for adult cats:

  • I have a puppy and need to switch to food for adults. The nutritional values ​​of this food are lower. How is this possible?

    Sanne explains: “The energy needs of puppies are different than for adult dogs. Puppy food contains more proteins and fats, because they are still developing. An adult dog no longer needs to grow and therefore needs less energy. The nutritional values ​​of the chunks are adjusted to that.”

  • My dog ​​is windy and often has loose stools. What can I do?

    “Low stools can have various causes”, says Sanne. “One of the causes can be a hypersensitivity to a certain protein source in the feed. My tip: choose food with one animal protein source. Then the chance of a sensitive reaction is lower. We also call this hypoallergenic food. It may also help to choose a food with a different type of protein source than that used in most feed types, for example lamb in the CaroCroc Superior chunks.

    You may also dog has complaints because he is sensitive to grains. CaroCroc has grain-free dog food with potato; this could make all the difference.

    Disclaimer: does your dog suffer from (serious) health problems? Then go to the vet.

  • My dog ​​has red skin and scratches a lot. What can I do?

    Another type of food can also help with red skin and a lot of scratching. Sanne says: “Try food that is specifically aimed at skin and coat improvement, such as the CaroCroc Skin Support. This food contains salmon oil, which makes your dog’s coat shine again!”

  • Put a wooden table in your living or dining room and the space is immediately attractive. The only downside to those tables is that they are often quite pricey. Not if you go to Houthandel Woerden! Owner Lucas Teuben: “We receive couples every week who have been looking for a table for two years. They will find what they are looking for with us within half an hour.”

    Woodhandel Woerden initially only sold garden wood, stone partitions and hardwood posts. That changed when Lucas started looking for a wooden table and noticed that the delivery time was extreme, as was the price. “My partner Jan and I decided to start importing table tops ourselves. We buy them directly from the source.”

    “The suar tree trunk tables come from Indonesia. Suar is a fast-growing tree from which large slices are cut. They form your unique table top. The oak comes from France and Germany. The oak tops are made of joined planks.” Lucas and Jan do not just buy one sheet, but immediately a truck full. “This gives us a competitive price.”

    Choose your own magazine

    The result is a huge warehouse with more than 1.20 sheets. “The nice thing is that you can choose your magazine yourself,” says Lucas. “For example, we have a hundred sheets of three meters in length. If you want number sixty, you will get it. Every top is different, so you can choose exactly a table that fits your interior.” This is appreciated: “We receive couples every week who have been looking for a table for two years. With us, they will find what they are looking for within half an hour.”

    Once you’ve found a top, you choose the frame yourself. “You can choose from 10 variants. We then assemble the table at home, so that the legs are exactly the right distance for your chairs.” Good to know: your table will be delivered within two weeks. That’s super fast!

    You are advantageous

    Let’s talk about the numbers. How beneficial is beneficial? “A suar tree trunk table of 2,10 meter costs us around 900 euros. A oak top of the same size costs around the 900 euros. In the average home furnishings store you lose two to three times more.”

    No maintenance

    Now we hear you think: a wooden table, shouldn’t you always sand and oil it? You don’t have to be afraid of that. Lucas explains: “We have our own workshop where we coat the blades. When you have selected a leaf, choose a lacquer. This protects the table and determines how light or dark the table becomes. We will then finish it for you. We have searched for the perfect lacquer for years and I can assure you: after this treatment you will not have to worry about your table for years to come.”

Then you can also buy the tables via the webshop . “I often advise people to take that ride anyway. It takes you a while, but then you know exactly which table you will get.”
