Ever wondered where the name bitter-ball comes from?

Isn't it bitter?

Most of us are familiar with this small, spherical fried snack. Traditionally, the bitterbal consists of a thick layer of breadcrumbs and a ragout filling that is comparable to that of the croquette. If you know the bitterbal, then you know that they are not bitter at all.

But have you ever heard of a bitterness 'bittertje'?

The name refers to the fact that they used to be eaten with a bitter drink; in other words, a glass of strong drink. Drinking "a bitter" can be regarded as the predecessor of "the drink". And we like to have a drink. There are plenty of options to enjoy our culinary snack.

Because say honestly; without snacks, bubbling is no match?
