My last trip to the Netherlands was almost 50 years ago, so I don't
remember if I had any stroopwafels in the wild.  Is this the sort of
product that can survive mass production, packaging, and a trip across
the Atlantic and still taste like I'm in a cafe in Amsterdam?

LOL!
I would like to see the back of the package: is there an ingredients 
list (not the one on front!). Otherwise, this looks like the authentic 
stuff, and as they also send worldwide (I looked them up) well packaged, 
they should survive, taste (remembrance!) and all.

The question would be of course, /what/ did you taste in that cafe in 
Amsterdam? There are all kinds of brands, from home made (or labelled as 
such) to mass production. I suppose you had one of the latter ones. 
However, just try them! :-)

[Fifty years ago? I lived in Amsterdam from 1966 till 1977 (with a brief 
interlude to North Africa in '75-'76). Our ways could have crossed...]

My experience here in New Zealand with stroopwafels is that the stroop
(molasses) has become soft underway, and then when you open a pack it is one big
lump of stroop and wafels. Which gives you an excuse to finish the whole thing
in one go!

Cheers
Ton.
