Having never heard of most of the items on the website, I was semi-excited to try them. I didn't have any idea what to expect.
I ordered the Shoofly Pie, the Birch Beer, and the Cope's Dried Sweet Corn.
First, we tried the Birch Beer, since it was an easy taste right out of the box. I expected it to be an alcoholic drink and was actually really surprised and happy that it was a home made root beer. It was the most delicious drink I have had in a long time, after the first taste, I knew I wanted to savor it, so I put it in the refrigerator and let it get cold so I could enjoy it more later.
Second, my husband and I decided to try the Wet Bottom Shoofly Pie.
I still have NO idea what kind of pie this is, the main ingredient is molasses, so I guess it's a molasses pie. We really enjoyed the crust and my husband compared the pie to a fig newton cookie. The next day we tried it hot and with ice cream and it was better, I think it's just an aquirred taste.
All in all, I would recommend this site if you like Dutch foods and are wanting some real home made stuff, or if you love to experiment with new things!
