Lotus Speculoos cookies and spread

image

I couldn’t start a blog about vegan food in Belgium without mentioning the most quintessentially Belgian of products, speculoos. Somewhat reminiscent of gingerbread, the cookies are crunchy and perfect with a cup of coffee, but where speculoos really comes into its own is in spread form. Looking like peanut butter, but tasting like cookies, it’s like fairy dust in a jar. It’s available as both smooth and crunchy. There are other brands of speculoos cookies and spread out there, but they’re not all vegan, so check the ingredients. Lotus brand speculoos is, as far as I know, consistently vegan. (Although not all of their products are.)

It’s available at most every supermarket where name brand products are sold. Oh, and if you get coffee at the Panos, they’ll often give you a little Lotus speculoos cookie to go!

    I’m on holiday in Belgium now and I finished a jar of this in 3 days! 🙂 It’s so good, I’m definitely taking some home. I just wish it wasn’t in heavy glass jars.

      It’s some good stuff, isn’t it? I’m not sure where you live, bambooblossom, but in the last couple of years it’s being sold outside of Belgium too. I’m pretty sure it’s being sold at least in the UK and US, sometimes under the name Biscoff.

        I live in South Africa and unfortunately we don’t have it yet. But that might be safer for my health 🙂 We don’t have Alpro yogurt either and I’m enjoying it so much. We have some other Alpro yogurt so I’m going to ask my supermarket if they can get the yogurt too.
