The pros: Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookies are delicious, vegan, and are the solid form of Cookie Butter.
The cons: The box that I bought disappeared off of my kitchen counter three times before I was able to complete this review. In fact, it took four boxes to get the final picture. My husband consumed all of these although is reluctant to admit to it.
There are certain things that I've had to purchase several times before I was able to get pictures to do this post.
This is one of them.
I brought them home and left them on the counter. When I was ready to sit and write this review I discovered the empty box in the trash can.
About a week later there was yet another strange event. I left them out on the counter. The exact same thing happened. No trace of cookies. Just an empty box in the trash can.
After the third time I cycled through this type of happening, I confronted my husband.
"Honey, have you seen the cookies on the counter?"
"The gingerbread ones? They're good. Yea, they are gone."
No confession of consuming an entire box (or three at this point). A simple they are gone. As if they walked away themselves.
A change in strategy occurred at this point. They were hidden in a cabinet. After getting a chance to try one I understood why they had vanished.
They're are just good cookies. They are crispy, cinnamon-y, gingerbread like. They are cookie butter in a solid form (even though technically cookie butter is made from these cookies).
Regardless, you can have four in a serving. They are delicious and will disappear.
For $1.99 these are inexpensive and really tasty. There are recipes online on how to make these but for under $2 a box why bother?
