spekuloos 1

Nice feature in today’s NY Times about the favorite new topping in our house – spekuloos from the Wafels & Dinges truck.  We picked up a jar less than 2 weeks ago…and it’s almost gone already 🙁

We do have a little disagreement on the taste though.  The label on the jar and the NY Times article say it’s made with gingerbread cookies, but it tastes more like graham crackers to us.  If it’s made with Belgian gingerbread cookies, they seem to be different from Dutch gingerbread cookies.

We were in Amsterdam in December 2008 for Sinterklaas, and the gingerbread cookies we had were a much darker brown with a significantly more pronounced ginger taste.  Personally, we like spekuloos better than the Dutch gingerbread we had in Amsterdam, but perhaps it was just a regional variation.  Either way, we’ll be back at the truck soon for some more.

Please sir, can we have some more?

  1. Not to blow up their spot but I was buying jars of this stuff before they removed the manufacturer label and replaced it with this one. It’s Biscoff Spread, unadulterated,I wonder if they’ll fall under legal trouble for this.
