ISO Speculoos

FruitsGalore Sep 15, 2011 08:36 PM

I was introduced to the goodness that are Speculoos on a recent trip to Ireland. Just wondering if anyone knows of anybody that carries it in the GTA? I'm looking for the biscuits (no particular brand required, but I'd assume the most likely brand to be stocked is Lotus Biscoff), but wouldn't mind trying the spread as well

    I got them at Sobeys sometime back in the winter.

      BloorSt market in the Manulife Centre. They're on a little shelf where the potato chips and chocolates are stocked

        I dropped by bloor street market today. I couldn't find speculoos, but I did manage to find hellema brand speculaas from holland. I figured, what the heck they should taste similar, but they actually tasted quite different. Does anyone know where I can find belgian speculoos?

        Try Superstore/Loblaws - they're usually with the Hobnobs and other imports in the cookie aisle.

          Have you seen them at a specific store? I checked a Superstore in Scarborough, and another Loblaws location, but couldn't seem to find them.

            Sorry I figured they were available across the board maybe it's worth a call as to which specific stores carry these?: http://www.presidentschoice.ca/LCLOnl...
