We're a rice eating country but lately people are starting to buy more bread and to bring a sandwich to work is the next in thing. Why is that?
|Trader Joe's Speculooos Crunchy Cookie Butter (Left) + Lotus Biscoff Spread (Right)|
Let's take a closer look:
Looking at the Nutritional Content, both have just about the same amount of fat, sugar, sodium, etc. Both spreads have zero Trans Fat and Cholesterol too which I later figured out was because they have exactly the same ingredients. I enjoy my Biscoff / Speculoos sandwiches with a tall glass of milk. It somehow gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling the same way is always does during Christmas morning.
Personally, I enjoyed the Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter more because of the crunchy texture. I also like the stronger gingerbread flavor that I get in each bite. I'll try the Lotus Biscoff Crunchy as well as the Speculoos Creamy Cookie Butter next time which will definitely call for another showdown.
Till then, excuse me while I go sandwich crazy!
I know of two sellers selling these spreads in Manila:
LorenaAndLoreta sells both the Lotus Biscoff Spreads as well as the Trader Joe's Speculoos Spread. Both creamy and chunky variants are available. Visit their Facebook page for more information. Warning though, order in advance as there's always a waiting time due to the high volume of orders they get. :)
My friend MM also sells Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter Spreads email me for her contact details.
