Creamy Speculoos in Vancouver?

  • 8

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.

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

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

      1. 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.

        1. 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...

          1. 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.

            1. 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

              1. 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!!
