Van Delft Kruidnootjes

Kruidnoten translates from Dutch to spice nuts. In German they are known as pfeffernusse which translates as pepper nuts. For anglophones, these are gingerbread cookies. All northern European cultures include some form of gingerbread as part of Christmas festivities. For the Dutch these little ginger cookies are traditionally thrown by St Nicholas when he arrives for his feast day, the evening of December 5. Many people have memories of a door being opened, a white gloved hand appearing and throwing fistfuls of kruidnoten toward waiting children! Available in 200 gm and 500 gm packages. Look for the cheerful face of St. Nicholas on the blue bag!


Oh Canada!We can only accept Canadian orders


Our online store is set up to allow you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. It also enables you to pre-order and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas. We strive to keep the prices listed on our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Furthermore, package weight variations for meat and cheese products make it impossible to provide accurate fixed prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate any changes in pricing as well as the actual prices of weighed items. You will then be able to confirm your order and arrange payment. Thank you for shopping with us! We hope it is a pleasant experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products or our ordering process.
