Featured: Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter

Cookie butter craze have been creating noise in PH since the beginning of 2013. Thanks to my cousin from California, I was able to try this for free.

I've read before that Speculoos is the Dutch name for biscoff, which originally came from Belgium. Others claim that Biscoff is better than Trader Joe's Speculoos yet I only have the latter and can't prove the difference yet.

True, this product is totally creamy, flavorful (though I can't taste any hint of gingerbread like what the packaging promised, but nuts) and very spreadable plus not too sweet and greasy (like our usual spread out there).

It is good, but I wasn't really impressed since there's really nothing peculiar with the product itself, unless topped on ice cream or frozen yogurt I guess. Mom stated "Yun lang yun?" (Is that it?) cause my brother bakes cakes with the same taste. -_- In my opinion, this isn't really worth the hype. It has made me expect a lot but wasn't blown away and hooked like others was. Now wishing that Biscoff (the other one mentioned earlier) will change my perception about this "cookie spread".

So if you haven't tried this cookie butter yet, Cookie Butter Manila, Joe and Cherry, Lorena and Loreta and other online shops were selling a jar in different price range.

Have you tried this product? I'd love to hear your views about it.


  1. nako sis thank you so much for including links to online shops. i saw a blogger posted about this and went looking for a cookie butter at the grocery. didnt find one. does it taste like peanut butter or nutela? hehe i cant imagine kase the taste but looks like a lot of people like it :)

  2. Wow!!! I really want to try this. Doubt I'll find it in the UK though :(


  3. Biscoff and TJ tastes almost the same. I love the Lotus biscuits more than these spreads.

  4. Haven't tried Trader Joe's cookie butter. Try Gonuts Donuts cookie butter, Myx! Perfect for pancakes :)


  5. Hmmm, this jar of deliciousness sounds interesting but odd at the same time. I would love to try it if I can import it into the UK >.>
