Kosher Biscoff/Speculoos

ettilou Jul 25, 2013 06:51 PM

Had anyone found these recently ? I read on another site that someone found them but they were expired, I was wondering if anyone had seen them, and where. I'd be one happy camper to find them in the NY area. I did read the previous post on here from 08, and I spoke to the company this afternoon. Since the kosher run is only sent to Israel, they have no idea where I might find the kosher product in the US. Any help ??

      Alas, I saw them once, about six months ago, in Season's in Queens, but not since. The Trader Joe's ones do not have a hechsher, by the way. I bring them home from Israel each time I go; I have six packages of them right now.

            The best cookie, having them available kosher is a major benefit of making Aliyah! I always have a package in the cabinet.

            I saw them at pomegranate. I have seen the kosher spread in Israel.

              Just heard that both Brachs and Gourmet, her in the 5 Towns has them. Will let you know if I find them this week.

                I did not see them earlier in the week in Gourmet Glatt. I did not ask. part of the cookie aisle was blocked by unpacked stock.

              Is it possible they have them at Costco? I had them at my parents house a while back, and I know they get most of their food from Costco.

                I'd be very surprised if Costco had the kosher ones; as ettilou said above, the kosher run is sent to Israel. I could imagine some of the kosher stores having some connections to get some, but Costco would have to get a tremendous amount of them to stock them, and I just don't see them having the kosher ones being important enough for them.

                  I spoke with Howie at Gourmet, who called Pasckez while I was there. Currently, the stock they have is past it's due date, and as the whole company goes on vacation forthe next 2 weeks, there will definitely not be any on stores soon. They told Howie, to call back after their vacation and they will be able to give him a better idea when the next kosher run will be, and when Gourmet will get fresh product.
