Coles Speculoos Biscuit Spread $1.75 @ Coles

250

Not in the catalogue but speculoos spread is currently half price at Coles - great value and comparable to Lotus brand. Just tastes like it has a tiny bit more cinnamon.

Crunchy version available too https://shop.coles.com.au/a/national/product/coles-speculos-...

    It's not as good as Lotus. But it's a cheap alternative option I guess

      sickly sweet to me, how do u guys eat it

  •  

    What do people do with these spreads? I bought a jar of something similar from Aldi…. no clue what I should do with it.

    •  

      Put it on toast, or waffle, crumpets, pancakes, cake, anything that you'd put peanut butter on I guess.

      If you’re feeling really fat, just get a spoon and eat it straight from the jar

        Spoon? Pfft.

    •  

      I put it on toast then peanut butter on top.

    The Dutch don’t have a lot of iconic culinary inventions to their name but this is one of them. Whoever thought to put uncooked spiced biscuit mixture on their toast is a genius (an overweight one too).

      Lotus is from Belgium.

        Lotus is totally different to speculaas.

        Speculaas is much superior but has been around probably 100x longer.

        Lotus is basically caramel and speculaas is spices such as cinnamon.

        Zwarte Piet would definitely be taking you away in his hessian sack at Christmas! (Speculaas is had at Christmas)

      I would say they have heaps.. Advocaat appleflappen, oliebol, speculaas, poffertjes.

      Not to mention the almighty chocolade hagel which is 1000x better on toast than any other spread in existence!

        Yeah there are a few. Croquettes too. Don’t forget double salted liquorice! My dad makes olieballen every Xmas, so good. I guess what I meant was compared to some cuisines like Italian, French, Chinese etc. I need to look into this chocolate hagel you speak of though…

      •  

        Oh hagel is just chocolate sprinkles… no way is that better than Nutella! It’s better than fairy bread, I’ll give it that.

          But it's the quality of the chocolate. Try some one day, it melts on toast and is amazing.

          Play some Sjoelbak whilst you're at it!

      the story i heard was during their trip back from their colonial invasion to Asia, they had a drum full of spices on the ship and they tipped over and created this magical speculoos powder…

      so yeah, initially its just a powdered spice mix… we Indonesians (ex Dutch colony) still use speculoos powders in a lot of our cakes and desserts…

    Definitely decent and on par with lotus. Get a raincheck if it's sold out
