However, there are many ways to experience the stroopwafel goodness! This raffle item includes the standard stroopwafel, mini-stroopwafels, stroopwafel bits (great over ice-cream or in baked goods – or just to munch on) and stroopwafel liqueur. You’ll even find a book about the humble stroopwafel (including recipes) and two stroopwafel bag clips. A Leiden University bag is provided to cart your haul away.

Tickets cost: 6 for $5, 12 for $10, 30 for $25. Don’t wait until the conference… you can pre-buy your tickets here
