I've seen something like this at Trader Joe's for over a year now.

Sounds nasty.

Cookie Butter.  The Trader Joe's stuff is like peanut butter that tastes like ginger snaps.  I don't get all the hype either, but my kids like it.

At least you can argue that peanut butter has some nutritional value.  This is just crap.

No, we can go deeper. Cookies iced with cookie butter. Cookies made with cookie butter. Cookie-butter-cookie butter.

It's referenced in the article too. But I will have to agree, having tasted both, that I prefer the Biscoff spread.

It's like crack because you don't have to chew it. The biscuit this starts with might be quite nice, but throw a pack of them in the Vitamix and you won't wear yourself out moving your jaw.

There's a rule emerging here... If you can't chew it, don't eat it.
 
2014-06-02 10:50:48 AM  
Ooooh!  It's like they already chewed up the cookies for me, and regurgitated the resulting paste into my mouth!
 
2014-06-02 10:52:34 AM  
I have actually tasted it.  While I an OK with cookies, I did not care for the spread.
 
2014-06-02 10:55:22 AM  
I've seen that and I love those cookies and no, I won't be trying it. That jar would be a single serving for me.

Did you read what's in the ingredients there?

A whole stick of butter. 8 ounces of cream cheese. A cup of peanut butter. 2.25 cups of sugar.

2014-06-02 10:58:37 AM  
"New"?

Ridiculously tasty on apple slices, with (ever so slightly) fewer calories than peanut butter. It's not as overly sweet as you might imagine and a bit here or there won't cause instant obesity.  Don't go at the jar with a straw and you'll be fine.
 
2014-06-02 11:02:10 AM  
Psshh crack in a jar is truffle salt. Presto, everything savory is now delicious.

I see no problem with this.  Other than the fact that bacon should never be sweet.
 
2014-06-02 11:03:46 AM  
Speculoos is a Belgian cookie that used to teach kids Bible verses because it had a picture on it. The secular version (Seculoos?) is called Biscoff and you get them on Delta Airlines. They are OM NOM NOM when you dink them in coffee because there is butter in the batter and it melts very readily.

Biscoff Spread is the brand name version of cookie butter. Haven't tried it. I would be concerned that a) it would taste too much of cold butter or b) I would like it and OM NOM NOM the entire jar.

Ive never tried it but since everyone was over reacting the spread in the article I thought Id throw that link in here. I'm far from fat Im 6' 2" and weigh about 180lbs . Im the kind person you hate, I can eat anything and not gain an ounce! Can you hear me enjoying this sloppy breakfast burrito too?

Actually, I'm very similar. 6', 170 lbs, swim all the time and eat whatever I want. Slim and muscular, but oddly I still have body issues. No idea what that's all about. Probably bad parenting.

Regardless of fitness level, I still say don't eat this. My quick calculations put the caloric load of this "dip" at 5500+ calories. You could eat 4 pounds of porterhouse steak and take in fewer calories and more nutrition.

How old are you?

When I was in my teens and 20s I was like you.

Then I hit my mid-30s and noticed it wasn't as easy to maintain weight.

Then I hit my 40s and even a lower-calorie intake doesn't do much to fight off the midsection bulge.

So if you're under 35 and boasting of high metabolism.... Just wait. It'll slow down soon enough. Then you'll have even MORE body issues.

I'm 35. I do notice that I get a bit of a belly when I eat anything that has gluten/wheat. I suppose I should add that "eat whatever I want" excludes wheat products mainly because I don't want that. But everything else is game - ice cream, sweets, liquor, beer (is how I know that it's a gluten thing).

I'll be 40 in August. I was in the military for 7 years and have been out for 14 now. I just maintained the exercise regime I did while I served. I actually enjoy exercise more now that no one is forcing me to do it. I'll admit I do feel lucky but Im sure the metabolism will slow down, it just does. But I have learned and maintained good habits. I rarely eat fast food or drink soda/pop. Just stopping those 2 simple things can have an impact. I do indulge from time to time of course Im not going to deprive myself but I dont make it habit and neither is a staple in my diet.

HaywoodJablonski: We're on track to eating nothing but sugar-coated bacon for every meal


Pork Candy:

Preheat oven to 375 F
Spread desired amount of bacon slices on baking sheet
Place in oven - when bacon is ~75% cooked, sprinkle with brown sugar and crushed pecans.
When removing, allow to sit for a minute to allow the caramelized coating to "set up."

Go to store, get more bacon, do it again.

Scaevola: Came to say this. Speculoos is gobbled up in Belgium & Netherlands. DNRTFA


This product won some kind of invention competition tv show by a lady in Belgium or Holland 10 or so years back. Speculoos is often eaten with breakfast - to be dipped in coffee, which turns it into a spreadable paste to put on bread. the Speculoos in a jar just takes out the middle step of making coffee.

I've had the biscoff stuff, it's interesting but too sweet for me.

As for the idiots saying "this is horrible, no wonder kids today are fat," maybe you should oh, I don't know, ration the sweets you give your snowflakes?

I'm in my 50's now and I lost about 15 pounds over the last few years. I was just "normal" before. Now I'm on the verge of being too thin, but don't really eat enough to put it back on. I was very, very stressed for most of my 40's. When that stopped, I lost weight. Stress makes you hang onto fat more--your body is making ready for a big famine or something. Half of you guys, you're so damn stressed out just with your normal lifestyle, it's a wonder you don't all weigh 300 pounds. And the rest of you don't get enough exercise--because of your stressful, busy lifestyle.

the only time I have ever stuffed my face was when I was very tired, or very stressed out. And a bunch of you all don't get enough sleep every single night. I'd eat non-stop if I was that tired all the time.

Good stuff. A peanut butter and Biscoff sandwich is a fine snack.

I heard abut it on TWiT and grabbed a jar when I saw it in the store.

I know it's not healthy, but I don't eat it with a spoon to solve my emotional problems.

I've tried both the creamy and the crunchy version of the biscoff spread.  The crunchy is where it's at and it's insanely good.  I don't buy it, though, because it's sort of pricey, is cracky, and really no nutrition.

I thought that this has been around for a while and what's interesting is I don't really like normal biscoff cookies.
 
2014-06-02 01:46:14 PM  
It's like crack in a jar? Like? crack?!?!?!?! You know what else is just like crack? Crack!

Why can't we just have good ol crack?
 
2014-06-02 01:52:21 PM  
I hate it personally. It tastes like eating someone else's chewed cookie.  I am not a baby bird , just give me a cookie.
 
2014-06-02 02:04:10 PM  
I dip speculoos cookies in it.

It's almost like cannibalism.
