Sneek is also known as 'the city of Drabbelkoek', named after the crunchy sweet cookie which have traditionally been baked here. This Frisian tradition is held in honor by the Sneeker boterdrabbelkoeken factory 'De Friese Sjees'. This small-scale family business existed already at the court of William III in 1880 and Queen Beatrix since 1990.
In the past, 'Drabbelkoeken' were a delicacy for the elite. Butter was very expensive. A tin with fifteen cookies cost as much as one guilder, a hefty sum when you consider that the average weekly wage was just seven guilders.
