If you have Instagram or friends with Instagram, you probably have seen this. And if you live by a Trader Joe’s, you may even have bought this. Speculoos Cookie Butter has kind of gone viral (in the Internet sense, not the health sense), and for good reason. Trust the hype and get your hands on a jar because it is some kind of wonderful.
Speculoos Cookie Butter has the same consistency as nut butters, but it doesn’t contain nuts of any kind. It does, however, contain actual crushed Speculoos biscuits (Belgian cookies spiced with ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper) and magic. That last ingredient isn’t listed on the label. But once you’ve tasted this stuff, you’ll know that it’s implied. It’s sort of like sweet gingerbread or snickerdoodles. And it goes wonderfully on bread, crackers, veggies, ice cream and even candy bars.
When you get a chance, I highly recommend heading over to your nearest Trader Joe’s and picking this up. It costs less that $4, which is super cheap for a jar of happiness.
