Fear: Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter

30 Jul

Speculoos Cookie Butter

I rounded the corner while shopping and saw the succulently stacked pyramid of Speculoos Cookie Butter.

Immediately, I had conflicting urges: full-body dive into the mound, filling my basket as I awoke from my trance swooning, or run and hide under a heavy piece of furniture, rocking back and forth, humming softly?

The possibility of pure and utter delight that might result at the first bite of something called “Cookie Butter” was almost too much to handle.

I retained my cool and calm exterior.  However, in bathing-suit weather, I put my hands on my cart and steered away from primal temptation.

Have you tried this wondrous product? What are your thoughts? Should I dare? Will I be able to resist making this 11-oz jar a one-serving container?!

Thank you for your help and insights!

Thanks for your creative creations, TJ’s. I think.

    Never heard of it. And is it “cookie” as in cook? Or “cookie” as in “kookie,” wild and crazy? Knowing TJs, it’s probably the latter.

    Yes, I have tried this cookie butter. It is marvelous! May I suggest that you don’t take a spoon and eat it standing at the counter. Your stomach will hurt. Ask me how I know….

      Thank you for the tip, Dawn. I’ll make sure I’m sitting down when I dig in! : )
