Biscoff Spread (aka Speculoos): A serious addiction!

Just tried this and I'm now obsessed! This stuff is like crack. I'm giving the Lotus company full blame for the inevitable weight I'm about to gain. ;o) Anyone a fan?

  1. One of our local grocery store has started carrying Biscoff. We bought a pkg., I had not had them in years. We inhaled that package on the spot. Went back the next day and bought another. That one we were more circumspect with.

      That's exactly what had transpired with me a few days ago. I even bought a jar to keep in my desk at work. I'll probably end up using it in recipes, but for now, I can't get past spooning it out of the jar.

      There should be support groups for addictions like this!

    2. The Trader Joe's crunchy version is (IMO) even better.

        It's the one called "cookie butter" right? Must try it one of these days.

        1. re: Sra. Swanky

          Yes indeed. I hear how great it is on pancakes, ice cream, etc. The only thing I've ever tried it on is pretzels -- very good -- but usually I just eat with a spoon.

        2. re: Rilke

          I was told in another thread that the Lotus crunchy is crunchier.

        3. I haven't bought it because I am afraid that I will eat it uncontrollably. I am obsessed with the Lotus biscoffs in cookie form though, its why I fly Delta!

            Wow - you have so much more self-control than I do! Yes - you probably would eat it me. *licking spoon*

          2. Have you tried the chocolate bar with speculoos inside it at Trader Joe's? I had to stop buying the jar of speculoos because it's too tempting but I'll buy the candy bar now and then. Yum!

              Oh no - this just keeps getting worse!! Speculoos inside chocolate ..what temptress at TJ's thought this up?! I'm going to try really hard to restrain myself.

            2. Try making peanut butter cookies with Speculoos spread instead of p.b. Amazing. Then give away a bunch of them to a skinny friend.

                  Yum!! That's a great idea! I'd feel too guilty giving them to my skinny friends - they work so hard to look as good as they do! LOL!! But my boys' preschool is peanut-free -- it would be a good treat for them to bring in to their classes! Thanks!

                    Make cookies w/ spread that is made of cookies. Haha!
