    My favorite Aruba sweetness is caramel stroopwafels. Then I found out I can buy them in my local Duane Reade/Walgreens!

    While this is an older thread I’m glad it was brought back! On our May trip I purchased a new flavor of Verkade chocolate. The flavor is expresso dark chocolate and truly amazing. In November I couldn’t find it anywhere so if anyone sees it please post. I put it in the freezer and then shave it to put in my homemade coffee ice cream. It gives the ice cream a real flavor boost!

    Talking about sweets, we like the unusual flavors of ice cream and yogurt at Lings. We just cant get those flavors in the U.S. And the chocolate filled cookies too, mmmmm.

    so confess! What's your little secret treat here in Aruba?
    My favorite candy is the same one that I used to enjoy at the Lufthansa lounge in Paris.
    I have never seen them anywhere else besides Aruba.

    They show up at Super Foods for a limited time before they sell out for a few months.
    I usually buy up half their stock when I see them appear on the shelves and by the following week they are usually sold out.

    That’s all I’m saying because I don’t need the competition.

    This makes me sad. I thought we were all about sharing on the forum.
