Our Story


Ever eaten something so incredible you just couldn’t forget about it?


We didn’t realize it at the time, but that first stroopwafel we tasted on the streets of Europe in 2003 changed the course of our lives.
Cirkels (pronounced SUR-kulz) is the result of our years-long attempt to recreate the delicious street food.

Unable to get the craving out of our minds and ingesting countless stale imports, our decade-long obsession eventually made us realize that, to get the fresh and simple version we wanted, we’d need to make it ourselves. We spent over a year making and taste-testing batch after batch after batch to finally get the simplest, best recipe we’d EVER tasted.

Heather loves to bake (and eat baked goods). Christina is a woman with a mission to make (and eat) the perfect stroopwafel.

Now that they’ve mastered making the classic stroopwafel, they spend their days thinking of new ways to make the classic Dutch treat even better!
