Okay, I know it’s old news, but to satisfy my curiosity for Speculoos CB, I snatched one from the newly stocked shelf at a store in Laoag. Much to the consternation of consumers abroad, hordes of boxes are being sent to the country, breeding spin-offs, like everything is suddenly gingered with the cookie spreadable. Yes, from polvoron to ensaimadas. Cookie butter bibingka might just be coming soon.
I like it, but I don’t love it like I do peanut butter on toasts. Straight from the bottle, it’s not as exciting as ube jam. Ate it with tortillas. Not a good combination, imo. I have yet to try it with veggie sticks. Leaving aside, the name Speculoos actually makes me laugh. I thought I’ve heard it first in nursing school.
