Speculoos à Tartiner, in its American incarnation as Biscoff Spread, is now available at many stores here and around the country.  Trader Joe's even has its own version, which I will be able to sample and compare because we are finally getting our own Trader Joe's!  You can even buy Speculoos in tiny Hillsborough, New Hampshire—which also needs a Trader Joe's, but we'll take one step at a time.

The exploding popularity of this heavenly spread was featured in the Orlando Sentinel yesterday.  I don't know what goes into the decisions involving placement of articles and advertisements on the page, but surely this could be no coincidence:


On the bright side, all this publicity may dampen the TSA's suspicious attitude, although there is now less reason to transport it in my luggage.

The article was in our paper today and I had saved it to inform you of it, but I guess I don't need to!

Speculoos milkshake. Did you see that? May have to give it a try.

Thanks for thinking of me. Hmmm, I hadn't thought of milkshakes. Or pancakes. It all sounds good, though to be honest most of our Speculoos is consumed directly, via spoon alone.

BTW, Lotus Foods has a website with recipes. In case you are interested....
