Better than Nutella?

speculoosWe discovered Speculoos, the delicious cinnamony Belgian cookies, all on our own and now thanks to one of my kids’ best school chums who is Belgian, we’ve now been introduced to the spread which I can only liken to crack that’s spreadable with a knife. Yes, I like peanut butter and no, I don’t care much for Nutella, but this stuff is even more awesome. Admittedly, it’s not as versatile as peanut butter (which, in addition to sandwiches, also makes appearances at our house on apples and in Asian inspired sauces for noodles and chicken) and it’s certainly not remotely healthy, but it is sure is fine. After we finish the jar I just bought, I’m definitely thinking twice about buying it a second time.

    PLEASE- somebody tell me how to get this in North America (Canada, to be specific). I’ve tried Belgian stores & Dutch stores… they all know of it, but none carries it.

    schoolmail@gto.net if you have any suggestions.

    Oh my!!! Sometimes, my husband surprises me in the morning with a packet of Speculoos biscuits to go with my coffee. He just twitted ur post to me. Carrefour carries the biscuits in Singapore but we haven’t seen the spread on our shores yet!!! Drool….
