Guilty Pleasure in a Jar: Biscoff Spread

Looks like peanut butter, but tastes so much better.

The Guilty Pleasure: Biscoff Spread
Where to Get It: Trader Joe's, Fresh & Easy, or WinCo Foods
Price: $3.50-$4.50
What It Really Costs: 90 calories a tablespoon; same as peanut butter without any redeeming nutritional value. (serving size 1 tablespoon? Yeah, right!)

There it was, innocently sitting on the shelf at Fresh & Easy, right next to the Nutella. I found out about it a year and a half prior through David Lebovitz's blog. The post called it by its French name, Speculoos à Tartiner: "Speculoos Spread". It's known as Biscoff Spread pretty much everywhere else in the world. And I knew it had to be mine.

JK, you can have mine. Tried it once and it's just collecting dust in the pantry now. I bought it thinking, "Holy crap! Pureed cookies that taste like digestive biscuits!" Then got one bite of the granular, overly sweet spread, and it elicited a bad childhood memory we've all had: that poor, abandoned cookie at the bottom of a glass of milk that gets left behind and goes to mush. Blech.
