You can now order your favorite Sinterklaas goodies (December 5th), as we have all of the products in stock, but they are selling really fast! If you do not want to miss out on certain chocolate letters, please order quickly!
We are maintaining an order deadline, because we want to be able to ship out all orders in time for the holidays. The deadline for Sinterklaas orders is November 20th! Orders placed after this date may arrive in time for the holidays, but this is not garantueed.

The material also feels much more sophisticated; they really are a beautiful work of technology
You can order them in our shop as from today! As always, we offer them with a set of coffee cups and three bags of Senseo coffee pods!
The Senseo New Generation
Wendy | zaterdag 16 september 2006 |
First, we have the AH Perla Cinnamon, AH Perla Vanilla, AH Perla Toffee, and AH Perla Hazelnut coffeepods. These name basically explain their flavors pretty good.
Then, we also have added three new tubs: AH Excellent Smooth Power (Columbian beans), AH Excellent Sweet Energy (Brazilian beans), and AH Excellent Double Boost (Indonesian beans). These three new tubs replace the Zinglez tubs that were already on our website.
Finally, Pickwick has released three new flavors in t-pods: Sweet Apple Cinnamon, Fruity Forest, and Soft Starmint (licorice root, aniseed, peppermint).
We can't wait to try our newly found treasures; they are already available for purchase in our shop, and pictures will follow this weekend!

We also offer "birth clogs", which are the cutest little wooden clogs. They will be painted in either blue or pink and the name and the date of birth of the new baby girl or boy will also be painted on them.
And I just had to post this picture of Fee and Ninja:

Gift wrapping is free for secret pal purchases!

So, it's back to the daily routine. We are now happy to announce that we will be offering Senseo Extra Dark Roast Samples for free with any order that contains (Senseo) coffee pods. Also, we will extend this service to other flavors as well. You will be able to request a free sample with your order and you will receive two pods of the requested flavor, so that you can see if the flavor suits you. We will place them in a ziplock bag. We think this is an excellent way to sample various flavors.
We will also send out our newsletter this week!

The recipe for my Scrumptious Choco-Cake
200 g butter
3 bars of bittersweet chocolate (300g)
1 bar milk chocolate (100g)
200g donkere basterdsuiker or brown sugar.
150g flour/baking powder
200g caramel fudge (cut into cubes)
125 ml cream
Preheat oven to 175 °C. Divide the butter into small cubes and heat them along with 2 bars of bittersweet chocolate and 1 bar of milk chocolate (save the third bittersweet bar for later) until completely melted. Make sure you do not burn the chocolate! Once melted, allow to cool for a few minutes.
Break the eggs and mix. Add the brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Sieve the baking powder/flour in the egg mixture. Then, carefully fold in the chocolate mixture. Next, stir in the fudge.
Pour the mixture into an oven dish (make sure to cover the surface with butter). Bake for approx. 30 minutes: the inside of the cake should be really moist.
Pour the cream in a small pan and break the final bar of bittersweet chocolate into the cream. Carefully stir until completely melted. Pour frosting on top of cake and spread evenly.

The site has undergone a few minor aesthetic changes, but there are still more changes to come. I have added a new, perhaps quite important feature to the site: the D.E. Points Exchange. On every package of Senseo coffee pods, Douwe Egberts Coffee, or Pickwick tea, you will find the so-called "waardepunten." If you live in the Netherlands, you can save these points and exchange them for Douwe Egberts gifts. However, we understand that a large percentage of our customers are not in the position to do this. Therefore, we have decided to start our own service: you are able to exchange your points for vouchers that you can use in our shop!
On a lighter note: I purchased a new digital camera (the Sony W70) and I really enjoy it. I am by no means a good photographer, as I usually only make product photographs. However, I enjoy using the macro function of my camera..a few examples follow.

Yes, that's right; we will be closed for the summer from July 18 - August 14. While I will spend some time relaxing on a beach, I will also work on the website to improve its quality and make it even more user-friendly! If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email me!
I wish you all a great summer!
Wendy | zondag 9 juli 2006 |
I have also decided to make this blog a little more personal, because based on my own experience, I like a personal style when it comes to a company blog. I always like to know that there a real persons working on my orders and answering my emails.
The past week, I enjoyed the summer sun and started reading some great books. After watching Oprah, I really wanted to read Elie Wiesels Night, so that book is on my reading list for the summer. I am now reading a chick flick, as it is sometimes called, Watermelon by Marian Keyes; really a great read for the summer.
Also, don't forget that Typical Dutch Stuff will be closed for the summer from July
Well, I'm going to settle myself in front of the TV and watch the Worldcup finale!

Now we hope that Holland and Australia do not have to play against each other!
Keep up the good work Guus !

Also, apparently some of you were interested in the owner of TDS as well. Therefore, I will answer a few questions that were asked in this blog entry!
So, your name is Wendy and you're Dutch. May I ask how old you are?
A woman never reveals her age unless there is no way around it. Let's say I can order a drink legally in the US!
What's your favorite (Dutch) food?
Well, I love Turkish, Indian, and Italian food in general. My favorite Dutch food has to be a "frietje speciaal," basically french fries with mayonaise, curry, and onions! I also love cheese, Dutch desserts, and sweet licorice!
What kind of music do you like?
I actually like a variety of different kinds of music. I currently have Pink's new album on my iPod (perfect for when I exercise) and I love The Counting Crows, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Jamie Cullum, that kind of music.
What's your favorite television series?
Oh my, I have to admit I am secretly addicted to television series! My favorite series at the moment are (in no particular order): Lost, Prison Break, Grey's Anatomy, and Desperate Housewives.
Do you have a favorite book?
I enjoy reading, but I do not have enough time to read everything I want. I just finished Kate Chopin's The Awakening, which I really enjoyed. I plan to read Memoirs of a Geisha in the very near future; I thought the movie was very good. My shelves are filled with new books, so I hope I get a chance to read some of them over the summer. Oh, I forgot; I also think that The Da Vinci Code is a really good read.
Who will win the World Cup?
Who do you think? I sure hope we will win this year! But how can we not with players like Arjan Robben, Ruud van Nistelrooij, and Edwin van der Sar!
Well, that's all for now! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

We also have a large selection of Oranje products; that way it is easy to show which team you favor!
Wendy | zondag 16 april 2006 |
We always wanted the site to not only feature products that can be purchased, but we also wanted Typical Dutch Stuff to form a source for information and to be interactive. That's why we have a selection of recipes, a blog, a forum, and many contests.
As of today, our visitors can watch a selection of Dutch television commercials on our website. We figured this would interesting to Dutch expats all over the world.
Access is of course free, but we do work with a password protected area (to prevent bandwidth overload). All you have to do is email us for the password!
You can find them on Our Commercials Page
They should be available around May 2006, and we will be stocking them as soon as we can get our hands on them. We'll also be stocking the Senseo Cappucino pods in the very near future.
Wendy | donderdag 2 maart 2006 |
They have created four different T-Pods: Tempting Red (Rooibos/Orange), Early Grey, Minty Green (Green Tea/Mint/Zoethout), and Lemon & Lime.
We will be offering a special starters set, which includes the new flavors Early Grey, Tempting Red and a special T-Pod holder for the Senseo!
Because these starters sets are limited editions, our stock will be limited. If you want to be sure to have one of these sets, then you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave me a private message on the forums!

If you place an order before February 19th and mention "valentineday" in the message field at the payment screen, you will receive a free gift with your order!
