Cookie Butter Is The New Nutella

As a person obsessed with condiments, this is big.  I had been seeing this product pop up all over and just the mere name of it had me.  It's called Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joe's.  Move over Nutella, there's a new spread in town!  As you can read from the label, it's "a deliciously unusual spread reminiscent of gingerbread and make with crushed biscuits".

Here's some Food For Thought via Alwayshungryny.com
Speculoos originates in the Netherlands and Belgium.  It's actually a thin, crunchy cookie baked for certain holidays but can be found year round.  Rebranded in the states, they became known as Biscoff cookies.  And yes, they make a spread as well.
