“Inspired by the traditional spiced cookie from Belgium and Netherlands, this velvety sweet spread contains a plentiful amount of crushed cookies. Mix, dip, spread and blend in everything from pancakes to cake batters, pretzels to ice cream and doughnuts to smoothies. Or, simply spread on toast, crumpets or scones for a luxurious little indulgence.”
According to the list of ingredients, the spread is actually mostly made of speculoos cookies (which I had never heard of before) mixed with lots of additional oils and syrups.
The consistency reminds me a lot of peanut butter.
The product photo has it spread on top of waffles so that is the first way I tried it, for brunch on the weekend.
Turns out I did not put on enough to really taste it. I was worried it was going to be too sweet but this is way too light a touch for testing this product.
It is also quite firm, even though you store it at room temperature. This time I tried it with pancakes and as the pancakes finished cooking on the grill I added a dollop to each one on top.
This got very goopy and became much more spreadable.
It worked a lot better and it truly did taste like there were cookies on our pancakes. Even though there are 8 grams of fat per tbsp, I was happy and surprised to see that only 1.5 g was saturated.
If you are looking for a unique foodie stocking stuffer or want to try something different for Christmas brunch this year, I say go for it. It is definitely a fun way to make food that much more festive and memorable. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it and I think Reg felt the same way.
I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
