iso Speculoos spread
Does anyone know if you can buy Speculoos spread in Toronto? Even somewhere in Ontario would be okay. Would love a source closer to home instead of ordering it online from Belgian!
I just found Speculoos in Toronto, woohoo! Good news aside, it is still imported and costs way too much to feed my habit. It sells for $7.95+tax. Found it at the 'fine foods' store at the lower level of the Loblaws at St. Clair (near Spadina). Let me know if anyone has a better source. I also found it a while ago in a store in Montreal. I remember it being slightly cheaper there.
Have you tried calling/emailing Holland Store on Weston Road, to see if they carry it? I think that's where my Dutch Cdn friends get some ingredients.

its a disservice to say it tasted like peanut butter.
it literally tastes like crushed digestive cookies. its amazing.
in Belgium, they'll spread it on bread with chocolate sprinkles and eat it for breakfast (!!!).
we brought a jar back and ate from it slowwwwly so it wouldn't go to waste (that and curry ketchup)
Yeah, I did some more research after posting that and I am not sure why the guy said "tastes like peanut butter". Maybe he said "it is like peanut butter" and meant in terms of texture and I misunderstood not knowing anything about it. Definitely going to take a look for it when I am out and about now.
there is a distributor of many Dutch foods in Burlington, called Custan Foods. I did a quick scan of his website, and he has a lot of Speculaas products- not sure if there was a spread in there or not. Here is the link- if he wont sell directly, he will at least be able to tell you where he sells the product you want in to.
They have it at Leonidas' Danforth location. It was Speculoos not Biscoff (I don't know if these two brands are actually the same product). I've had the latter and it tastes like what it is, an oil-based spread. The kids loved it, it's decent but in the end something I can live without. The butter-based cookies that PC used to import I loved.
