The Speculoos Cookie Butter Craze has taken over Manila and the gooey (and sometimes crunchy) stuff is invading pantries and lunchboxes across Metro Manila.
There must be something in it that’s making people fall in speculoove with the stuff!
Some people spread it on bread, some just eat it straight from the jar, and some people even carry jars of it around in case of emergencies. That is, assuming of course, that your idea of an emergency is a funnel cake in desperate need of even MORE sugar.
But the contagion has not just spread to people’s pantries but even to restaurants all over the metro as well! We’ve scoured your reviews for food joints that have caught the cookie butter bug. It’s gotten so bad that mutations have been spotted in their menus… transforming run-of-the-mill menu items into… Cookie Butter Monsters (of deliciousness)!!!
The collision of two of the hottest foodie trends today was inevitable, and BONO Artisanal Gelato was one of the first (if not the first) to capitalize on it. With stocks of the stuff getting harder and harder to come by, we wonder how they’re able to keep the flavor on their shelves (or rather, in their freezers).
If Cookie Butter’s good on bread, it must be even better on a donut. Makes sense. Oh, and by the way, Krispy Kreme’s donuts come in TWO speculoos flavors — which means you probably can’t leave after just trying one. Warning: sugar crash imminent.
I’m not sure Trader Joe was a French dude but the people at Chez Karine probably don’t care — the cookie butter variant of their french treats is a best-seller we hear! And from the way looloo reviewers are talking about, it’s likely to stay that way for a while!
