Heavenfull’s Vanilla Ice Cream Stroopwafel Sandwiches

Vanilla Ice Cream Stroopwafel Sandwiches by Heavenfull
$13.99 for 1 box (12 x 140mL)

First Impressions

So I spotted these at Costco (it’s a Costco exclusive product, according to the Heavenfull website) and I basically called to my husband to grab me a box because hello, stroopwafels! I love stroopwafels (as evidenced by the #StroopwafelSunday hashtag) and was immediately intrigued and super excited over trying these out. I love stroopwafel and I love ice cream – so why not put both of them together?

Heavenfull is a Canadian company (based out of Toronto, Ontario), and their website states that they give back to SickKids Foundation (benefiting The Hospital for Sick Children) – which I think is a great cause to give back to their local children’s hospital.

The packaging itself isn’t that exciting – it’s a printed cardboard box with the information about the product, ingredients, nutritional information. The ice cream sandwiches themselves are individually wrapped in plastic. These are definitely not meant to be warmed on top of your cup!

Vanilla Ice Cream Stroopwafel Sandwiches consists of: the waffle (flour, palm oil, sugars, egg, soy flour, salt, cinnamon, oat fibre, and baking soda), vanilla ice cream (milk, cream, sugar, modified milk ingredients, mono-and-diglycerides, guar gum, cellulose gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan, silicon dioxide, natural favours), and dulce de leche crème spread (sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water, skim milk powder, canola oil, sodium alginate, salt, microcrystalline cellulose, carboxymethyl celluose, mono-glycerides, sodium hexametaphosphate).

First Taste

I feel like the sandwich itself is definitely decently sized (on par with the other non-stroopwafel ice cream sandwiches that my husband picked out for himself!). It smells like a stroopwafel (of which I have eaten many by now…), and tastes really good! The cookie itself is soft, and the caramel layer wasn’t as hard to chew as I thought it might be. The ice cream has a really nice vanilla flavour to it that goes well with the soft chew of the stroopwafel cookie sandwich.

My Overall Impression

I loved Heavenfull’s Vanilla Ice Cream Stroopwafel Sandwich. It combines my favourite tea time cookie with a thick layer of vanilla ice cream and I am here for it! It has great flavour and the caramel layer is easy to eat – which is always a plus! This just might turn into a summer time staple in my home and I’m pretty okay with that becoming true.

Biskwi’s Waffles

$2.00 for 400g (10 cookies)

First Impressions

Stroopwafels are one of my favourite things that I discovered in the last couple of years. For those that are unfamiliar, stroopwafel is a Dutch wafer cookie sandwich with two waffle cookies with a layer of caramel between. It’s great with a cup of tea because if you put the cookie over a cup of hot tea, the heat warms up the cookie and caramel and it ends up being a delightful sweet treat with your cup of tea.

I was in Dollarama and spotted these on the shelf because I needed to make my way down a one-way aisle in order to go down the next one-way aisle. I was surprised to see stroopwafel on the shelf because it seems like such an odd item for a dollar store to carry (and I’m mentioning Dollarama by name, because the Biskwi Waffles are imported by Dollarama so I’m not sure if you’ll be able to find them anywhere else). The cookies come in a plasticky bag with a wired tab to close/open the packaging. Inside it consists of 10 cookies. I’m not terribly surprised that they’re called Waffles instead of stroopwafel because if they’re trying to appeal to more of the public, having a name that’s familiar is an easier sale than one that is not.

Waffles consists of: sugar, wheat flour, vegetable oils, barn egg, salt, soya flour, whey powder, emulsifier, caramel, raising agent, cinnamon, natural flavouring, citric acid, water. For allergen warnings, the packaging does mention that this product contains: milk, eggs, soya and wheat. And that it also may contain tree nuts (I assume through cross-contamination).


Biskwi recommends placing the waffle over the top of your hot drink for 2 minutes.

First Taste

Waffle becomes soft as it sits over a cup of hot tea. You’ll know it’s ready because the middle begins to sag downwards. The Waffle becomes warm, and the caramel softens. The cookie itself has a nice sweetness with the caramel layer, and some nice cinnamon notes. It’s tasty and goes well with a cup of Hong Kong-Style Milk Tea (if you’re wondering what I had this with).

A Second Cookie?

Not going to lie, I was impressed with my first Waffle and had another (and another).

My Overall Impression

I loved Biskwi’s Waffles. I like the affordability factor ($2.00 for 10 cookies), which makes it a nice little treat to include with your daily cup of tea. It has a good amount of sweetness, without being too over the top. The flavour is nice, and the caramel gets to a nice softness within the 2 minutes spent warming on top of a cup of tea. I do wish that they had opted to call their product Stroopwafel instead of just Waffles, because that is the traditional name, but I’m not too fussed about it.
