Hi just wondering if anyone knows if you can get Speculoos spread or Biscoff spread anywhere in Montreal. Im in the west island but go to Jean Talon Market regularly. Anywhere around there that people know of that have it?
Heard really good things about it and must try it!

Thanks

    Yes it's available. Most fine food stores will carry it. I've never looked for it at the Market, but maybe Hamel would have it? Oscar on the Plaza usually have it too. If you go to Atwater Market sometimes, I'm sure you could find it at Les douceurs du marché.

      They have speculoos spread at Atlantique, corner of Cote des Neiges & Queen Mary.
      I think I also saw some at Vieille Europe

          It's very sweet and you have to like gingerbread... I wouldn't make a sandwich with it but just eat it plain off the spoon.

        I've seen it at Gourmet Laurier.

          It's delicious and so addictive, but I ate too much in one sitting that I'm kind of turned off from it at the moment.
          I have seen it at the Provigo on Monkland

            Oh I did the same thing - loved the stuff but once devoured about half a jar in one sitting and henceforth avoided it.

            Actually though, this thread is kind of making me want it again... especially the CRUNCHY spread, are people seeing that one around too??

              Yes, the crunchy one was the one I bought on Monkland ave. Funny because that grocery store is so limited in everything else.. It was truly a random find.

            I buy Biscoff in the US as the prices for it here in QC are ridiculous. I have yet to locate the infamous crunchy one, though.

            (Also, count me in as someone who will sneak into the kitchen with nothing but a spoon in hand to eat it.)

              I bought both the classic and crunchy one from La Vieille Europe on St. Laurent when I was there months ago.

                They also sell it at Cool & Simple, the frozen food store. There's one on nuns island, monkland and the plateau.

                  Les Moulins LaFayette Café has what you are looking for, never heard of this spread before but noticed a jar of "Speculoos" as I was waiting to pay and thought of this thread.

                  6 Avenue de Lourdes in Pointe-Claire (It's actually on Lakeshore a couple of blocks west of Cartier)

                    Trader Joe's sells both the smooth and crunchy jars in their stores across the border. It is one of their best sellers and I've been wanting to get my hands on a jar since forever. I'm happy to learn that I can buy it here in Montreal!

                      TBH, the TJ's Cookie Butter isn't exactly the same flavor as the original Biscoff/Speculoo's to me. It's not as gingery.

                      I saw it today on Monkland at Le Maitre Boucher. They have a high end brand that offers speculoos spread and chocolate spread - in glass canning jars.
