This review is from: Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter (Misc.)
I found this at Trader Joe's on the peanut butter aisle and after talking to a clerk who described it as being kind of like a light ginger bread wafer type of taste I thought, "Eh, I'll give it a go...." He suggested putting it on a crumpet and so I got those too....(Ever hear them say don't shop hungry?). Well, I am glad I tried it. It is for sure junk food, it is made up of ground cookies and the taste is not too heavy on the ginger and spices, just a bit, in fact perfect if you ask me. I like it on the crumpets but found they are to die for spread on an apple....I was afraid this was seasonal, but I understand from TJ's it is coming back, they are temporarily out of stock due to demand. HURRY UP ALREADY! Oh, also made Rice Krispie treats and put in approx. 1/4 c. in while the butter and marshmallows were melting and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. Too good!
The only thing I can think of as a drawback is if you can't stand a cookie crumb texture. It is smooth like peanut butter but you do get little spots of cookie crumbs now and then, so some may say that gives the spread a gritty feel. I myself love it and will buy a couple jars to have on hand. Oh, and don't refrigerate!
