Creamy Speculoos in Vancouver?

Andria Jan 1, 2012 09:38 PM

Does anyone know where I can find speculoos spread? This is a creamy spread made from speculaas, those thin and tasty spice cookies. It comes in a jar similar to peanut butter, under the brand name Lotus. Speculoos spread is highly addictive... a must try.

    i just noticed this "warning" on an email newsletter from trader joe's today -

    **Speculoos Cookie Butter is temporarily unavailable due to its overwhelming popularity. More is due to arrive soon, and it's definitely worth the wait - it's cookie butter!

    the closest tj's to Vanc BC is Bellingham WA

      I picked up some Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter at the little Trader Joe's outlet on West Broadway today!! I've been wanting to try Speculoos spread ever since I read about it here! Saw some at Stong's in Dunbar, but the price was a little too high for my liking. The Trader Joe's brand cost me $5.49. Maybe I should have bought two jars....the kids have discovered it!!

      Must check it out at Stong's. A more general thread on speculoos in case you haven't seen it: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/771377

        For an arm and a leg you can buy Biscoff Spread at Stong's. Over the summer I became so obsessed with locating a jar that I emailed Anna's customer service. For some reason they said it wasn't available at any retailers here but I found it at Stong's couple weeks later.

          A brand named Penotti is launching similar products in Canada, although they're usually mixed with chocolate or similar. I know that some Save Ons have listed them...

            You can order it directly from Biscoff.com. I just got an order, shipped very quickly. They have a crunchy version as well. Get the cookies too.

              I am not certain - try European Specialty Importers on Prior St near the VIA rail station. They all sorts of Dutch stuff there.

                if you drive across the border to WA, Trader Joes starting carrying it.
