Shera & Slim's Favorite Foreign Words (Dutch Edition)

Today's Favorite Foreign Word (Dutch Edition) is:

"Slagroom"

Slim and I like this word because:

1) It looks cool &
2) It's fun to say!

"Slagroom" is a Noun - a very delicious noun.
 A noun that describes something that the Dutch people love to eat.
In fact it's something Slim and I consumed on multiple occasions while in Beligum 
(where they speak Flemmish which is very similar - almost just a dialect of Dutch). 

The "slagroom" is in the photo below taken in a coffee shop in Bruges.

Can anyone guess what it is....?



It's whipped cream!

My cappuccino above was no ordinary cappuccino - it was a Belgium cappuccino, where the Batista uses "slagroom" instead of hot steamed milk - and let me tell ya' this cappuccino Belgium style was super delicious!

More about this, and other "slagroom" experiences, in our 
"B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L Bruges (Part 2 of 3)" post tomorrow!
