I was truly disappointed with these waffles! They simply did not taste good. They tasted mealy, a bit too sweet and stale. It could be my preparation or perhaps the way they were packed and shipped. They were packed in the cardboard box and not the styrofoam cooled portion of the shipment. Perhaps if they had been kept cool? This was a first when it comes to German Deli! Normally everything I have ordered has been delicious, well packed and leaves me wanting to go back and visit this beautiful country!! My father was military and we were fortunate to have two tours in Gemany. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of the time my father was stationed there!
