Speculoos spread in London

Does anyone know where I can buy Speculoos spread in London? Not necessarily any particular brand.

If you don't know what I'm talking about please look here:

  1. Yes, Waitrose started selling it recently, however for some strange reason, it's been rebadged for UK as "Lotus Caramelised Biscuit Spread" with no mention of speculoos on the jar. On their website, search "biscuit spread" to bring it up.

      It looks good. What does this stuff taste like??

        The spread and speculoos biscuits taste the same. The biscuits are crunchy, like ginger snaps whereas the spread has the texture of Nutella.

        Flavour-wise, imagine caramel toffee with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, etc. spices added. Enough for lost of flavour but not so strong that you lose the toffee underneath.

        There is no toffee, that's just the brown sugar and butter in the biscuits, btw.
