Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter…Help!

It’s the latest product to hit the shelves (and fly off of them!) at Trader Joe’s. It’s a phenomenon in itself. Hubby is hooked. I’ve turned friends onto it. I find myself sneaking spoonfuls. It’s called Speculoos Cookie Butter….and as the packaging states, it’s like cookies in a jar. All the Trader Joe’s employees are raving about it…and with good reason!

This cremey deliciousness is perfect with just about anything if you’re looking for a touch of sweetness.  A small spoonful goes a long way too. Sneak a little into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Have some on your morning toast. It goes great with bananas and apples too, or just have it by itself.  If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a must. You will agree there is nothing quite like it.  Definitely one-of-a-kind.

A serving size is one tablespoon and contains 90 calories, 6 grams of fat and only 5 grams of sugar. While I am not completely pleased with the ingredients, I find comfort and security in the Trader Joe’s label. Trader Joe’s is recognized for products that promise NO artificial or genetically modified ingredients or preservatives.

*Please note, however, that this product contains Wheat, Soy, Margarine and Sugar, amongst other controversial ingredients.
