So Delicious You Might Cry

I’m up to my eyeballs in birthday preparations. And we have a big church party tonight as well. In other words, I’m raw-ther busy. But here’s something for you to think about: one of my very favorite foods ever.

You probably have heard of Biscoff. It tastes like cookies but is smooth like nutella.  It’s really fantastic even though it sounds pretty weird. There is also Biscoff Crunchy. Just when you thought Biscoff couldn’t get better! There are thousands of tiny bits of cookie mixed in.  It’s like regular Biscoff is the Terrestrial Kingdom and Crunchy is the Celestial. You can and should buy it at World Market.

Theoretically you can put this on toast and bread or whatever. But I eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon. I’m what you might call a purist.

  1. I have never heard of this delicious looking spread. You can only get it at World Market? I never go there, so how will I remember too? Looks yummy enough to eat with a spoon for sure.

    1. You can get it online but it comes in a glass jar so shipping can be a bit steep. You owe it to yourself to make a trip to World Market!

  2. How could I have visited you a hundred times and never even HEARD of this stuff. OK, I’m coming over, and I expect a spoonful! I’ll even pay my $1 diet penalty! However, like Rebecca, I’m sure I’d rather eat the cookies. Or the batter – YUM!!

  3. This stuff is soooooooo awesome! I love to talk about this. Only people usually don’t know what I’m talking about. Actually, once a French exchange student knew what I was talking about. The first time I had this was at a tiny Liege waffle shop in SLC. The owner is from Belgium and had just imported this spread that he called “Speculoos”. I tasted like the Biscoff cookies on Delta airlines, only crushed up. And that’s exactly what they are. You should’ve seen me when: #1. I found the cookies at Target and #2. I happened across the spread at Cost Plus World Market. I almost collapsed from happiness. I tell everyone I know and nobody cares. Now I’ve found you Jennie! My favorite way to have it (since I can’t go to the waffle window in SLC that often) is on bananas. Well, the banana is really just a vehicle for the Biscoff. And I do eat it out of the jar, too.

  4. I used to devour speculoos cookies as a missionary in Belgium. I remember being given homemade ones in the shape of a Baby Jesus for Saint Nicolas Day (December 6th). My companions and I would also buy packages of the cookies at the grocery store, and when I took my family to visit Belgium in 2005, they also became fans, and we smuggled a bunch home in our suitcases. They are a type of cookie you can’t eat just one of–you eat one, and then without realizing it, the whole package is gone.

    Then for several years recently, I kept thinking the Biscoff cookies Delta Airlines gives out on flights tasted exactly like our beloved speculoos, and they did say on the wrapper that they were a product of Belgium, so a while ago I finally remembered to look it up, and learned I was right: Biscoff is a brand name for speculoos cookies. And that’s when I learned they had also come out with a spread.

    I haven’t had the opportunity to try Biscoff spread yet, but I’m sure I’ll like it.
