Okay, one thing that sometimes makes baguettes even better is waiting until you get home so you can slather them in…
The biggest slave to Nutella I am, I never thought another spread might capture my heart. Speculoos comes pretty close. The same color and consistency of peanut butter, yet it’s sugar-y sweet and somewhat spiced and crunchy too.
In other words, it’s like crushed up Speculaas—those thin, crunchy Danish cookies—that have been blended with extra sugar and additives and preservatives so you can smear it on bread and croissants and make weird sandwich combinations out of (Speculoos and pear? Speculoos and Nutella? Speculoos and Nutella and peanut butter??). It’s really good for you, too. No, really! It gives you lots of energy and happiness.
Speculoos, people. If you’ve had it, you know the bliss that I describe. If you haven’t, you must try it. And if you can’t find it, maybe I can be convinced to start a Speculoos mail order business.
