Biscoff Gourmet Review & Giveaway Ends 8/1/11 at 7 PM EST


Europe's favorite Cookie with Coffee
Biscoff is the name given to the traditional Speculoos biscuits in North America. It's derived from the combination of words Biscuit and Coffee, simply because their caramel flavor and crisp texture make these cookies the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee or espresso drink.

Speculoos are decorative caramelized biscuits and they were traditionally used to celebrate weddings and births, to teach history, and to chronicle war in Europe. Today Speculoos make up 20% of all the cookies eaten in Belgium and are still an important part of their culture.

Original Recipe Since 1932
Biscoff cookies are baked using the original recipe created in 1932. They are made with all natural ingredients, using no artificial colors or preservatives. They are vegan and contain 0 grams trans fat and 0 cholesterol per serving. All Biscoff cookies are baked in Lembeke, Belgium by Lotus Bakeries.

Introduction to the U.S. - The Airline  
Successful in Europe for decades, Biscoff's popularity 'soared' when it was discovered by an airline food supplier during a trip to Belgium in 1984. Since then, Biscoff cookies have made air travel a little sweeter on nearly every domestic airline and most international carriers. As of 2010, airline passengers nibbled on 1.5 billion cookies, with Lotus Bakeries selling 3.3 billion Biscoff single and double cookies in Europe a year.


Ingredients: Wheat Flour, Sugar, Vegetable Oils (contains one or more of soy bean oil, sunflower oil, palm oil), Brown Sugar, Leavening (sodium bicarbonate), Soy Flour, Salt, Spice (cinnamon)

ALLERGEN Info: Contains wheat, soy. 

Review 
I received a package of the Biscoff Cookies and a jar of the Biscoff Spread to sample and review.  I tried the cookies right away.  They are delicious.  I ate them by themselves.  Then I had them with coffee and with milk.  They are amazing with coffee and with milk.  These cookies are my new favorite addiction.  

Then I tried the spread.  I put it on toast.  The spread tastes just like the cookies but in a spread form.  It's amazing.  It's good on toast.  It's good on croissants.  It's good on anything.  It is great on fruit as well.  This spread is quickly becoming my new addiction.  I am so thankful to have been introduced to these fine products.  I can't wait to share them with everyone I know.
  
Giveaway - Biscoff has offered a cookie jar and jar of spread to one lucky winner.
