As per everyone's suggestions, I bought the Speculoos Crunchy Cookie Butter on my first trip to Trader Joe's. And yes, I know I am WAY late to the game.
I have to admit, the first time I tried it (four days ago), I thought it was okay...I really didn't understand all the hype it was getting. I mean the flavor is just kind of weird...a sweet spread that tastes like gingerbread cookies. It was odd, mainly because I had never tasted anything like it before. (Now I understand why Argentines don't like peanut butter...they get the same feeling when they try peanut butter as I did when I tried cookie butter.)
But, I pushed through. Now, four days later, I'm halfway through the jar....... and I was afraid that I wasn't going to finish it before the expiration date...ha! That's laughable.
I've been eating it with crackers for breakfast and also at merienda (snack time). Any other suggestions as to what I should it this with before it's all gone? I'm leaning towards spreading some of this deliciousness on sliced green apples. You know, taking the "healthy" route.
One final note: As if this cookie butter wasn't good enough, the name is even better! I just love the word "speculoos". Thank you, Netherlands & Belgium. :-D
