Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter
I've been hearing about cookie butter non-stop for the past month or so. I didn't know exactly what it was, all I knew was that you could spread it on bread and pretty much any food with a surface. The internet has touted it as Europe's version of peanut butter because it's a creamy spread made of crushed cookies instead of crushed peanuts. Just so you know, Speculoos is a type of biscuit that's thin and crunchy.
Amazon.com which she could bring over. She arrived yesterday and so I got my 3 jars of Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter. The text on the jar describes it as "A deliciously unusual spread reminiscent of gingerbread and made with crushed biscuits.". We'll see about that.
Is it worth the hype? No, not really. I find it overrated but then the hype had set up my expectations really really high so I was kind of disappointed when I wasn't blown away like everyone else was. One tablespoon of this contains 89 calories, so I was relieved that half a teaspoon on one pan de sal is enough for me. At the very least I like it a lot better than Nutella since it's a lot less sweet and saturating.
I also bought the European version, Biscoff Spread... I must say I like it better.
Now here's the more pertinent question... where do you buy Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter here in Manila?
- You can order online via Taste Central (it's usually out of stock so do keep on checking), Cookie Butter Manila, and Lorena and Loreta (I heard their backlog is crazy though).
- I heard it was sighted for sale at Rustan's Supermarket, Blue Kitchen in Shangri-la Mall, and Milky Way Cafe along Arnaiz Avenue (formerly Pasay Road).
