I’m quite sure that we’re all familiar with Lotus Biscoff and Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter because it is almost all over the social networking media. I can read it on different blogs and I can see it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It seems that everyone is going crazy over this spread that you can only buy in online shop.
Knowing me, I’m not into online shopping because I have to go out and deposit the payment and wait for the items at home. Last August 16, I ordered some party stuff for my son’s birthday and my experience wasn’t good. I ordered Friday, made the payment on Sunday via Paypal and received the items 9 days after the payment. It was still fine with me because at least I received the items but I was disappointed because my order was not complete. There’s a missing item so I have to inform the seller and she asked me if I can pick up the item in her bazaar in Rockwell which is not good because I live outside NCR so she said she will ship the missing item. Every week, I have to ask her when she will send the missing item and I got tired already, feeling ko she has no plan to send it so last September 11, I refunded my payment via paypal which of course I did not receive the full amount because she did not chose personal payment.
And because I don’t want to experience that again, I don’t want to buy this cookie butter and biscoff spread online. I tried Trader Joe’s Speculoos cookie butter when my sister-in-law brought one jar in my mother-in law’s house few months ago. And last weekend I saw this Lotus “The Original Caramelised Biscuit Spread” in SM supermarket at P349 so I immediately bought one jar.
Honestly, my taste buds can’t differentiate which one is better because for me, both taste good but I’m sorry to say that I still prefer peanut butter over this. #loyal But my husband and son love this. This is my son’s new favorite spread at nagsawa na rin sa Nutella.
“The Lotus Spread story begins in Belgium in early 2007 with the simple but brilliant idea of Els Scheppers, a culinary enthusiast. Her idea? Create a creamy sweet spread with the unique taste of Lotus Biscuits. With recipe in hand, Els entered the Belgian prime time TV show “De Bedenkers” (“The Inventors”), competing against 2,000 other entrants. On November 25th a jury of food experts and TV personalities chose Els’s Spread recipe as one of the finalists of the competition. Lotus Bakeries and Els Scheppers worked together to perfect the recipe and so gave birth to this new culinary delight!” Source: Lotus Biscuits
