Since I was a young girl, I loved to eat chocolate, vanilla and strawberry wafers. Now as a mom with children of my own, I still love to eat wafers and so do our kids! In May, I discovered Voortman Bakery and their variety of wafers (specifically the S’mores flavors). This month, I discovered the Voortman Strawberry Wafers and they are delicious!

The Voortman Strawberry Wafers are one of my favorites! I love them not only because they are yummy, but because they are baked with real strawberries! At Voortman Bakery, they believe in real ingredients. Simple, real ingredients are what make their cookies so remarkably delicious. Their wafers have no artificial colors or flavors AND no high-fructose corn syrup.

At Voortman Bakery, they believe in the art of baking. Plus, their bakers love to bake! From creating new and exciting flavor combinations to constantly reviewing their recipes, their bakers are real cookie connoisseurs! They believe that cookies should taste delicious. I love that Voortman Bakery is committed to giving uncompromising quality, flavor, and simply better cookies to their customers. At Voortman Bakery, they believe that REAL bakes better.

I like to learn about the history behind the brands that I love! Voortman Cookies began in 1951 when two young Dutch brothers, William and Harry Voortman, opened their first bakery in Hamilton, Ontario. It took five years of dedicated baking and hard work before a Canadian grocery chain agreed to give Voortman Cookies shelf space in their stores!

Even though their name has changed, their commitment to using simple, real ingredients has not. At Voortman Bakeryquality and taste has always been and always will be their top priority. From their classic Windmill cookies to their new Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, they’re constantly reinventing what delicious tastes like!
